    Hey what's up everyone?!? I recently purchased a 89 ef hatch from this guy who didnt take care of it at all. It's a real junker right now. I'm almost embarrassed to put pics up but they will come soon hahaha. Anyways...I am planning on doing a complete engine and tranny swap. My choices have come down to either K20 type-r or a B18C type-r. What do yall think would be the best for my car? I want to re-do the entire car(engine, suspension, interior,exterior,etc.) but I also want to put a turbo on it. Which engine do you think would have the best power to work with the turbo boost? Any help would be much appreciated :) I am still learning a lot about engine work so bare with me. I am stoked on this idea and need opinions. Thanks and Merry Christmas!!!!

    If you want a turbo. Get a LS & turbo it. At first til Igot to bottom of your post I would've went with B18C5 for all motor. Is your EF a DX or SI? Depends on your money also, hp etc...

    What's an LS? I have an 89' EF Hatchback. Also, yes, I want to turbo it. So go with what like a 96' or up jdm?

    dont get a b18c5 or k20a if you are gonna turbo it. they have too high compression ratios to be highly boosted. get a ls motor (b18b) because it has lower compression than the type r motors. if you are going non-turbo, get a k20a type r, the best engine for non turbo cars. the regular b18b is a lot cheaper than the type r motors and will make more power when turboed. b18b compression ratio = 9.2:1 b18c5 compression ratio = 10.6:1

    ok let me rephrase, if your going all motor k20a type r if your going turbo k series all the way.not all k series has high compression. but its all in the tune any how

    do some research homeslice. if you don't know what an ls motor is, you probably don't know anything about hondas. and if you don't know at least what an ls is, i dont' think you have money for any of it.

    start reading around the forum and get a better understanding. if you just want to go fast, buy something already built. it sounds like you don't have the know how to replace or even fix anything. so find something reliable.

    I know the different K models man, I posted for others opinions on engines with my model civic. I know plenty of stuff about them and am still learning. Thanks for just coming on my post to talk trash. Im trying to build from the ground up. If I was just trying to go fast I would have chose the easy way. However, I'm not some lame like you who just wants to crash into a wall. I will find something reliable bro, I just don't need your help doing so.

    Any other ideas anyone?

    thanks

    i'm not talking trash. i'm talking real. i've been building hondas for over 10 years. i have forgotten more than you will know.

    if you want some real info you'll listen. just so you know 10 people a day come on here spouting off..."i want blah blah blah...but what is (insert something simple here)"

    heres something real for you....

    1) buy an b18a motor swap.
    2) get brakes, good suspension, and good tires
    3) take a driving course. it will teach high speed cornering, braking, and handling
    4) once you can handle that car, then think about a turbo.

    do some research. you'll see it doesn't make a damn bit of sense to put a $10k motor into a $1000 car. if you can even sniff that money, more power to you. but then why have an ef?

    good luck on your build. post pics of the ef, we would like to see it.

    Hey dude, calm down a bit. He was just pointing out a Very Reliable B Seriers motor for you that would be a good bace start for you, and Not slam your pocket all that hard vs a K seriers which is ushally expensive and takes alot more money. Alot of the forum members are goin to tell ya to go with a K if ya got the money, but I would say go with a B if this is ya 1st build, ya will learn alot more for alot less and then you can really decide what you want to do with you car... Take alook around the forum at others peoples builds, maybe ya see something you like!:rolleyes:

    man i don't even know why I asked for anyones opinion. I get a couple real answers and the rest is garbage. Telling me your life story and stuff. I don't give a damn about you man so back off. I told you I didn't want your help. That means DONT POST AGAIN IN ATTEMPT TO HELP!!!!! Crash dummy. Then you go like some little girl and try to give me a bad rep for being a car noob. Thanks man that was really awesome of you.

    Stop talking like you know what kind of money I have. I bought the ef from a coworker not some crackhead hobo. So "real junker" in my book means old and not taken care of. It doesnt have holes in the roof and rats in the exhaust. Man it really pisses me off when I come to get help on here and everyone acts like they are the golden goose that can build any car you put in front of them. I told you guys Im still learning shit every day. You act like I'm supposed to know it already. Isn't that what these forums are for? Learning and opinions from the more experienced? YES. So if you don't have anything good to say don't say anything at all. Didn't your momma teach you?

    Dude I don't normaly flame, but your actting a bit imture. People here are trying to help you. From what I have read, most people are saying Go with a K if you can afford it. But then there wondering why you want to stick a 5k worth of motor in a maybe 1k car? there just trying to see what you are thinking is all. They are also trying to say if u want to learn more then go with a simple B swap in your car... so before you go punching members with ya temper you should take a min and think alright...

    don't be such a whiny bitch. is this your first time on a forum? you should know that when you post, you get 2 good answers and then 2525 posts of bullshit. if you are so sensitive, just read on the forum and learn or take your huge bankroll to a car shop and tell them, "i wanna go fast".

    im not being a whiny bitch you cocksucker. im just gettin pissed because not only are you guys assholes, ya'll post on shit just to keep the thread going.......there's not even talk about WHAT I STARTED THIS FUCKING THREAD FOR!!!!!!!!!! I dont want to waste my eye sight on your stupid excuses for responses. some people on here are pretty cool but most of you guys are faggots.


    hey man FUCK YOU!!! I gave you that shit because you came to my profile, like a little bitch, and gave me negative rep for not knowing shit.Comment[​IMG]K20 Type-R or B18c5... 12-31-2008 11:35 AM95b16coupe read the faq

    If i was in Conneticut i would cut your connection dude :rip_1: you give me negative rep and tell me read the FAQ!!!! I know how to read you idiot and i have read FAQ. But any non-retarded person would easily know that Asking for an opinion on a specific car about two specific motors would not be any where near FAQ. Get a life man. hahahah wow dude I'm heated. I just wanna have fun building my car not just to go fast :asshat:
