    damn....almost, i said ALMOST makes me want to get another honda
    for the same price, i would rather have a turbo b-series than an N/A K-series. Cool motors though.

    Why?? The K would probably outrun the Turbo Bseries with a few add-ons, staying n/a of course.

    I mean I have a b16a and love it, but I know the K is far superior.

    umm....no. if you turbo a b18c, you can get 300hp out of it with more tq. the most you will get out of an all motor K with a lot of work is about 200-240.
    that is a killer deal though. i remember they used to be a lot more.

    Oh....lol.....ok then.

    Then how do the new Si's have 197hp out of a stock k20?? You're telling me with bolt-ons and some cams that a k20 won't make more than 240hp??

    even if you do, you will spend more than $3k to get to those numbers. cams and i/h/e are expensive for that. yes, you can get up to 240. not for the same amount as a b-series turbo. and it still wont have as much power as the b-series turbo.

    honestly, i would love to have a k. but for the price and power numbers, a turbo-b makes more sense.

    I don't see how bolt ons and a set of cams/injectors maybe would total $3k, but I rest my case....no point in debating it.

    I'd rather have a k anyday, far more reliable than a turbo-b ever thought about being....of course you can make it reliable, but theres more to tear up and tons more heat with a turbo setup.

    Well, porting and polishing your head at a decent shop will cost at least $1000. Another $1200 in head components, + bolt ons = total of more than 3K.

    From what i've seen, unless you are going extreme, there isn't much improvement to be had from messing with the head of a k-series.

    yup, that is for the motor swap and install. The motor is coming from the owner of the shop. He pulled it from his 99 teg. Putting in a k-series. So I will gladly take it. Ecu and everything from the teg is going into my car this week......:ph34r:
