It's kinda funny how the Euro spec had more power than this. It's usually the other way around

Well its pretty old so I would start with general tune up type stuff. Run a scan on it to make sure the knock sensor is working properly. Seafoam the intake manifold to clean out the deposits, ect, ect.

No telling how much power you have lost just due to engine build up or faulty sensors. No point in adding performance bolt ons if the engine isnt in good shape to begin with.

I have owned my 1999 Accord Type R for 8 years now. It is now nearly 11 years old and has never broken down or failed a MOT. I still can\'t think of another car I would really like to get into every morning, evening or night. The reliability, handling, engine and steering are all fantastic. Sadly, this may be our very last year together. Parting will be a very sad day indeed.....

He has owned one for 8 months????? I used to own a 1998 Z24 that used to keep up with mustangs and i dont think i would talk about it ten years later. I have moved on with my life.

Hmmmm, pointless comment!

The ATR is a great car - direct, responsive handling, fantastic engine, great to use as an everyday family car, but then turns into a beast on the twisties!

I have owned one for 8 months now, and am loving every mile in this amazing car.
The handling is sublime, the feedback is superb and she is very controllable.

The engine is bulletproof, and takes to a thrashing very well indeed :D The v-tec howl is great :)

I tested the FN2 civic and the S2000 at rockingham on the same day and took the accord type-r on he track afterwards.

The ATR was better than both these cars in every way and it's 10 years old :)

Owned one for a few months. Had to sell it off because of parts availability in Pakistan. Will always love it. Such a tremendous car to drive. The feeling is sensational!
