Since the launch of the CIVIC TYPE R FK8, SPOON have focused on the high-dimensional potential of the K20C turbo engine and proceeded with ECU analysis and setting with HONDATA Flash Pro with the goal of further improving engine performance.
By optimizing the ECU such as boost, ignition timing, and fuel adjustment, the output was improved by about 40ps compared to the normal while ensuring a sufficient safety margin. The torque in the medium and low speed range and the output in the high speed range were further improved. In order to make it happen, SPOON started to develop a large-capacity turbocharger.
The turbocharger developed this time uses a state-of-the-art, high-efficiency MHI turbo that supplies the OEM FK8 turbochargers. The shape of the compressor and turbine blades has been optimized by the latest CFD analysis technology, and the diameter has been increased to achieve high output without sacrificing medium- and low-speed torque. Also, since the housing has the same shape as the genuine one, it is completely bolt-on without any processing.
The compressor wheel has optimized the wing shape and the number of blades, and by expanding from the OEM unit 58mm to 65mm, realizing a much higher flow rate and boost.
They have also optimized the blade shape and number of turbine wheels, enlarging the OEM 47mm to 52mm, and succeeded in reducing exhaust pressure and improving response by increasing the capacity while suppressing the moment of inertia.

Comparison data by SPOON demo car
By installing SPOON N1 muffler, SPOON air cleaner, [Hondata] Fuel System Upgrade, intercooler, catalyst straight and setting the current car, it is possible to increase the output by about 100ps and torque by 15Kgm.
High-capacity clutch required.
Since sufficient fuel supply is difficult to reach with the OEM fuel system, a Hondata Fuel System install is required to provide the increased output (injector, increased fuel capacity and software upgrade included. Fuel supply amount increased by 24% compared to stock).
