    What do you mean by "with or without a Type S swap"?

    I thought it made a huge difference to swap to the K20 head?

    It does if it's just the basic K24 engine that they had been putting in the 03-07 Accords and the CR-Vs and Elements, but the TSX version is pretty potent right off the bat. I don't know if a head swap would really be worth the expense. It would probably be cheaper to just source a 2.4 liter block and the a Type S head separately...

    Ah, So what you are saying is that the TSX uses vtec on both cams as opposed to just one side like the CR-V, etc?

    I don't think you understood what I was getting at. The TSX motor is good, it doesn't need a head swap. Just use it like it is...

    Correct!

    X2... 09' TSX most likely is low mileage, mint engine. Don't crack it open to swap head. Besides the TSX head flows just as good as a K20A2/Z1 RSX head.
