Honda no longer makes that "vaunted" Type R engine (B18C5). It has been replaced (back in 2002 as a matter of fact) with a 2.0 liter engine (K20A) that flows much better and makes 25 more horses on the RSX-type R version in Japan (replaced the previous Type R).

Even the USDM version on the '05 RSX-Type S (used to be K20A2 and is now called K20Z1) now makes 210 crank horses. Unfortunately, as has been reported, Honda did not want to supply their K20 engines to Lotus for the Elise.
