I think the opposite would be more true.

ITR=P-4? Charlie SP=Celeron? Quite funny ler like tht. To think a modded car is an old generation car bodyshell, YES, but to think old technology sitting in modded car, I doubt so.
You ever seen those J`s Racing EK9? They override the Vtec cam lobe u know? What tech you want?

If you really want to know, we`ll have to take this offline.
10K is more than enough. But you might still be right though cos I totally disregarded the labour charge. The engine I was thinking of was built by the tuner to prove a point. Labour was free and the cust paid for the hardware.

Every car mfr has it`s strengths and weaknesses. Honda`s in F1 but Mitsu`s in WRC. Nissan`s in neither but its cars (eg. Skyline, Silvia etc) are very highly regarded indeed.
If you want to draw analogies or base your opinions on related matters, make sure they are relevant. F1 engines have no resemblance whatsoever to the road going Honda engines. So, if you`re driving a Civic or City, don`t feel so great cos Honda`s in F1. What they do in F1 has nothing to do with the car you`re driving. I drive a Putra, but hell, the fact that Proton owns Lotus or the fact that it is directly derived from a rally winning Evo3 - doesn`t make my car go one lousy bit faster.

and the proton will win everytime.. even after you`ve added RM25 K into the equation.. you`ll still win without taking into consideration the Extra horses you`ve gained after RM25 K of mods.
but the ITR may sill be quicker, as the owners wallet is definitely much lighter :)

Technically speaking, it`s impossible for any of our N/A proton cars to beat a Type-R due to Honda`s superiority in technology and funds. Even if both have gone throught `on par` mods. But in real life, strange things do happen. Remember, more than 1000 years ago, men thought that the earth was flat.
