: Rover 216 SEI Coupe re-chipping
Does anybody know if I ca re-chip a 216 SEI Coupe. If so what advantages would I gain and where could I go to do this, cost etc. That is if it ever leaves the drive again LOL.
Thanks and Happy New Year to you all.
Anybody any ideas?
If it is the SE, then I assume it is post '96 and therefore a K series.
Yes there is the superchips icon race.
What other mods have you done, as there are some obvious mods that would get you more bang for your bucks as it were.
No my car is '95 and we have established it is probably the Honda engine. Gearbox on the left with Dizzy and cam belt on the right. I have made no alterations to the car but if you have any ideas they would be welcome. However I must mention it is definitely the SE.
Ah, so you have the delightful power bulge over the gearbox version :err: :D
A good induction kit with cold air box would be the first thing I would recommend you go for.
I've always fancied getting a honda engined 216, because a B18C engine swap from an integra type R would make for a lot of fun dont you think? :D
Sorry Alcoupe but you have lost me, I am an engineer but only were computers are concerned although your suggestion did sound interesting.
Also, if the bloody thing would go right now it would be a bonus
The engine in the 216 you've got is a honda D series w/ 116 bhp? (D16Z6 isnt it?) The B18C (B18C2 you'd probably need as its OBD1) is the engine used in the honda integra the type R veriosn of which has 190 bhp :D As the above is a popular swap for civic owners I was hoping it would work in the coupe as well.
The coupe was fitted with a D16A6 engine - running OBD0
Teg type R engine is 197hp B18C5 will physically fit in the engine bay - the engine mounts will have to be moved and welded, driveshafts, wiring etc will need to be changed and a Y2 uk spec CRX/Civic gearbox used because the teg box has a hydraulic clutch. the gear selector rods will need some serious cutting and welding
You will need some rewiring - as this is different on OBD1 PW0 ecu'd cars so this will have to be wired to suit the different sensors!
I'm getting parts ready to fit a B18 to a CRX ATM - and this will be turbo'd in the customary Mark fashion :)
- best way would be to turbo what you already have :)
How do I Turbo it then?
First clue: Lots of money...
how much money are we talking????
£3.5k is a good starting point - But for that you could buy a 220 turbo coupe and live with oil leaks and HGF :D
You wouldnt however get the programmable management and a real intercooler :D
Or buy your cab and swap the bits over :D
Mark's knowledge is worth a small fortune on its own.
My cab would be a LOT more than £3.5k if and when I ever decide to sell it :D
Ok, so I was well out on the B18C idea, any idea if a B16A would fit in any easier?
Any vetec engine - excepth the SOHC vtec - will be hard to fit and wire!
B16 or B18 are just as difficult to fit as each other!
