K20A3 vs. B18C Type R
Hey I currently looking into a 2003 SI but before I go and dump money into the K20A3 in it I figured I'd do some research. After looking around I came across the 2001 Honda Integra's B18C (Type R) bhp 210 as opposed to the K20A3's 160 bhp. So I am wondering, is there any reason I shouldn't do the swap? Also if I do am I going to need a transmission swap for a LSD transmission? Please post all the things that would be needed for the swap and better yet if it's worth the work.

Yea, just because it has more power, does not make it any more superior. The K series in any form is by far further advanced then any B series with a much higher potential for any type of power
