Noob question.

Hey some of you guys may remember me from a few months ago. The 17 year old that got a 07 Civic SI sedan for $5500($4500 after I sold transmission included in the buy), due to rebuilt title. Anyways, I'm selling that civic right now for nearly double the price, and picking up another 2007 Civic SI Sedan for 14k, with a clean title, navigation and only 50k miles. Anyways back to my noob question. I'd like to convert my FA5 one day, what is the difference from doing Mugen and Type R? Like I'm honestly kind of confused, rather a Mugen and Type R are both the same thing or not. Is it just considered Mugen in the US, and than Type R in Japan? I know there is suspension differences, and a little power difference since the Mugen comes with Mugen parts like exhaust and what not.

So to shorten this up, WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE STOCK FA5, THE FA5 MUGEN, AND THE FA5 TYPE R?

Thanks,
Tony

P.S Sorry I'm still a noob to the fa5 game
