Ya I'm a little confused though if you bought the non intercooled with flashpro and bought the intercooler for $600 would that make it the full race kit?

So happy to finally see this, man. Totally made my night.

Looking at the images, I'm curious as to whether the piping will clear if you have a JDM/9th Gen valve cover.

FINALLY an SC for the R18!

Jackson Racing has released an SC for the R18, which will work for both Auto and Man trans.

Rep.+10oo0O for Jackson racing

What setup option would be best here? Is it necessary to buy aftermarket internals/clutch if purchased?for prolonging torque?

Well, they said they've been on stock clutch for over 20k, but I'd upgrade the clutch to a stg2 just to be on the safe side. As for internals, our internals are pretty decent (based on what I've read from Full-race) and it can handle the power..just depends on which kit you're aiming for.

Personally, I'm going to see what the Race kit contains and work from there.

So it's 40hp for non-intercooled, 60hp intercooled, and 100hp intercooled and non-carb certified. Is the 100hp version using a different pulley?

Is there room for an automatic to use a air/water intercooler?

Re: FINALLY an SC for the R18!

Also makes me wonder if there's a smaller pulley available for even bigger power...

Will they send the tuning file if you already own a Hondata?


40hp gain with all stock exhaust. So what would the gains be with a free flowing exhaust?

Not sure about all that. I'm sure for Autos you can prob go custom, but it might be costly.

As for supporting mods, you could prob get more power with a catback, IM, pullies and more aggressive tune

I'm on the fence of buying it at just the 40-50hp gain. While I don't need a 100hp gain, the cost per HP would make me really want it.

I know that even with a cai that is heat shield wrapped my intake temps get really hot while in traffic. With the supercharger pulling air from inside the engine bay and running the intake pipe right over the major source of heat, the iat would be very high.

Looks like the system could be piped differently, to allow for a cooler air intake location and this would free up room in the engine bay for a a/w intercooler. I guess if a person really wanted more engine bay room for a a/w intercooler of more room for pipe routing, the battery could be relocated to the trunk.

Bell intercoolers make 1.25" and 2.25" cores of various lengths and widths.
