    well k is the series of the motor
    the number is the displacement (ie. k20a = 2.0l of displacement)
    and the letter and number after it is the variant of that series of engine

    thats probably the best explination.

    a = old blocks for the accord and the prelude
    b = newer low displacement blocks
    d = low displacement blocks from 20 years ago to current d17s in civics
    f = accord/s2k blocks (the variant at the end tells you which).
    h = prelude/euro accord high displacement blocks
    k = current generation mid to high displacement blocks
    l = current fit engine series.

    e.g a b16a = a low (1.6L) displacement early revision engine (JDM Civics),
    d15b = low displacement (1.5L) slightly older revision engine (JDM Civics),
    h22a = high to mid displacement (2.2L) early revision (JDM Preludes).
    F20C = mid displacement (2.0L) late revision (S2000).

    The list goes on and on.

    for example 94-97 accord f22 motors
    f22b1 = vtec motor
    f22b2 = non vtec

    I knew some of those, but its nice to have a more complete list of which "series" went in which car. Thanks.

    Btw, don't forget the venerable C32B \o/
