2023 FL5 Civic Type R Engine Horsepower Leaked.jpg



Now, according to a Japanese customer reserving a JDM 2023 Honda Civic Type R and his photo, the 2023 Honda Civic Type R’s engine will supposedly see a +10HP and +15 lb-ft bump.

I’m keeping the source of this photo anonymous but, he supposedly grabbed this screenshot from another post and claims that, “A guy in Japan placed an order and he took this pic. ETA is March 2023.”

Those power numbers, if we round up, translate to 326 HP and 310 lb-ft.

For various reasons undisclosed, best theories including tuning for different grades of fuel and climates and emissions, Euro and JDM Hondas with the same engine as their USDM (incl. other global markets) counterparts are often slightly less powerful.

If the previous gen JDM FK8 Honda Civic Type R was rated at 316 HP and 295 lb-ft and U.S.-bound FK8 Civic Type Rs are 10 HP less powerful (3.16 percent less,) it’s safe to assume this U.S. bound FL5 2023 Honda Civic Type Rs will receive a similar decrease in power down to 316 HP, torque stays the same.

Makes sense. I did not think Honda was going to increase more than 15 HP max anyways. Good to see torque coming up a whole 15!

A bit disappointing for US markets.

I feel the FK8 may be faster around the track. Be interesting to see the lap times

I didn't expect much, so I'd say that is pretty good! I wish it was more still, as does everyone. The real thing will be the price once it is revealed officially by Honda

Well, in the US at least, there will be "Honda's Price", which will not be the same thing as "The Price."
Whatever the price, I don't expect these to be very available until at least late-2023, if then.
Unless the economy totally tanks, that is.

I can with 100% confidence tell you the FL5 will wipe the floor with our car. There's literally no way Honda made this thing slower with the additional cooling, 5+ years of chassis suspension development, and the new tire package.

Isn't 243kW/330PS closer to 325 HP? Where did 316 come from?
He reduced it by 10 BHP as the NA FK8 had -10bhp vs euro/jap model. But that hasn't been confirmed it will happen again, so he is literally guessing
