the C6 and C7 are both from the 96 spec type R ... im guessing one is Euro spec and one is Japan spec or somethin like that ... but it is from a 96 type r

U.K. and Euro-spec. cars use the B18C6 version of the 1797cc engine:


US-spec motors are designated as the B18C5, and the Australians use a B18C7 on their ITRs. JDM 98specRs simply have "B18C" as the motor designation.

stations that offer unleaded but octaine is 87 RON at best.this itr motor

$400 is incredible for an R motor. 87 is not so good. I don't know if the R motor will blow itself up on that or not.

Then I would say the R motor will knock as well, I don't know the compression in the C7 but if it is the same as the C5 it won't handle 87 octane on a hot day.
