Superchips Ltd is proud to announce our involvement in a very special project for Honda UK and Team Dynamics Motorsport. Using our years of experience in engine management systems, we developed a bespoke software solution for the Honda Civic FK8 Type R, which along with components from other select manufacturers, enabled a staggering horsepower gain while maintaining reliability and driveability.

Our involvement with Team Dynamics goes back many years, with personal sponsorship of ace driver Matt Neal since 2005. Matt Neal was the first driver in the modern era to successfully defend the most prestigious prize in UK motor sport – the Dunlop MSA BTCC title. In 2005 Matt was crowned champion in a season where he scored points in every single race, and the 6’6” driver earned the “people’s champion” tag when he became the first independent driver to win a race outright. Since 2010 he has driven for Honda Racing, winning the championship for the third time in 2010.
The Team Dynamics Motorsport version of the Civic Type R has been conceived by the Droitwich-based motorsport team to showcase the potential of the Civic Type R. The multi-championship winning team is the driving force behind the Halfords Yuasa Racing team, otherwise known as the Honda British Touring Car Championship works team.
Remaining road-legal, the car has a comprehensive selection of ‘off-the-shelf’ and bespoke modifications that have been carefully selected by Team Dynamics to heighten all aspects of the car. The changes to the ECU (Superchips), induction system (ITG), intercooler (PWR), sports cat (Dream) and exhaust (Scorpion) have yielded a 25% gain in performance; taking power to 400bhp and 500Nm. Helping control this increase are a number of modifications that embody both performance and safety, such as Goodridge stainless performance braided brake hoses, Eibach Pro performance springs, adjustable anti-roll bars and rear camber arms, and Dunlop DZ03G track day tyres wrapped around Team Dynamics’ 19” Pro-Race lightweight competition-derived wheels.
James Rodgers, team manager at Team Dynamics, comments: “We’re familiar with the race-winning FK8, however we wanted to showcase what can be extracted from the car with just a few light modifications. The standard car, which we call a race car for the road, is so competent that it really doesn’t take much to take it to the next level.”
