1. Purchase Civic Type-R from Japan.

Approximate Price for Civic Type-R without ANY OPTIONS. That means no radio, no lighter, nothing:
$31 209


2. Pay for customs.
3. Pay for conversion to pass US Inspections and Regulations.

Si w/ boltons/reflash and suspension upgrades. Just do that and you'll be quicker than a type r.
Going to need the type R diff and tranny with those mods, then you will keep up. You got to remember, the CTR is lighter than an Si Coupe (not by much though, but still) with more power and shorter gears and a better diff to put that power to the ground. Then with the CTR being soooooo much stiffer and has a lower cg (not just due to lower ride height but things like the lack of a sun roof) than the Si, you are going to need serious suspension upgrades to keep up.

Yes adding those mods will be faster than a Type R but seriously, how much people you know can say they own a CTR. Anyone with a SI can add bolt ons, suspension, etc, but not everyone can get a CTR in the states.

It's just like the Mugen Si. It maybe 30K for just a civic, people could buy faster cars, but how much people could get a Mugen Si.

Based on NHTSA rules a mule car would need to be provided for crash test purposes and more than likely the Civic type R would not pass US emissions. If you are lookign to drive it on the streets you would be looking at some serious cash because you would have to buy more than one and have work done to make it pass emissions.
