Doubt so, ...perhaps only if this engine is applied to the next (as & when) S2000.

Most likely it's a UK spec Type R. To compete in the Europe car market where most cars are turbo petrol & turbo diesel.

If you look at Japan there's no TC cars except Subaru. Most of the Japanese are into hybrid cars.

True Honda fans hate that. The reason Honda has such a huge fan base is precisely because they'd refused to TC their cars through the years. They eventually succumbed,

7K RPM redline from a TYPE R??? seriously???

I expected nothing less than 8.5K RPM redline from a TYPE R engine.
The Type R heritage is all about high-revving NA engines, that's what true Honda fans love, the screaming NA VTEC sound above 8K RPM...

Honda originated as a Bike manufacturer. Performance Jap bikes typically strive on high revs. Cars aside, even BnB Honda bikes seem to be moving towards low & mid range emphasis.

 

Now that Honda is supplying 1.5 TC engines for F1, no surprising that they are doing so for their Sports Cars.

Honda is not new to FI engines, in fact they were dominate in 1987-88 season of F1:

 

"Following the turbo domination, forced induction was allowed for two seasons before its eventual ban. The FIA regulations limited boost pressure, to 4 bar in qualifying in 1987 for 1.5 L turbo; and allowed a bigger 3.5 L formula. These seasons were still dominated by turbocharged engines, the Honda RA167E V6 supplying Nelson Piquet winning the 1987 Formula One season on a Williams also winning the constructors championship, followed by TAG-Porsche P01 V6 in McLaren then Honda again with the previous RA166E for Lotus then Ferrari's own 033D V6."

 

"The 1988 Formula One season was again dominated by turbocharged engines limited to 2.5 bar and Honda with its RA168E turbo V6 producing 675 hp (503 kW) at 12500 rpm in qualifying, this time with McLaren drivers Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost winning all the grands prix except one won by Ferrari with its 033E V6 with about 690 hp (515 kW) at 12800 rpm in qualifying."

 

Its only a question of whether they want to put their R&D muscle into developing these engines. It is no surprise then that for the 2014 season, "Honda[20] is set to return in 2015 with their own engine, partnering McLaren who will use Mercedes power for the 2014 season."

my previous civic type r was great for highways n track, but daily drive becomes a chore due to having to rev so much just to move. high rev fans are a small market so understandable honda cant make as many type R variants compared to last time.

 

normal cars sell volume, specialist cars unless theres a seperate strong brand like porsche, v hard to survive.

I only found it a chore at traffic jams, loved my FD2R previously, one of the best handling cars around.

 

Here's a utube of Honda's F1 turbo engine, sounds a whole lot better than the current F1 engines:
