    im looking into a k series for my 7th gen and im not a hundred percent if its necessary to buy the type r. i wanted to know if i was to get a jdm type r k20a or a type s usdm k20a if there was any difference if i was to completely build the block. i want to end up having the most powerfull k series i can possibly swap im i got 10 grand for the motor so just let me know what the bset combo of k20 if its a frankenstein. but if i was to build the motor with all new internals and all the whole 9 yards, would it matter if i started of with the jdm k20 or a usdm rsx base engine.. let me know and thanks for the help

    how to smoke domestics:

    buy a civic dx.
    slap on a 75 shot.

    it's really that simple :)


    if you're going all out---
    score a TSX k24 bottom end
    JDM ITR k20 head
    JDM ITR k20 tranny
    hondata k-pro
    and the internals of your choice.

    and then would it be safe if i changed over all the internals to change to a turbo setup and that bottom end is strong enough for it?

    so whats the verdict my friend?

    ive heard awesome things about the k24 with type-s head.

    and if you're gonna build up the motor, whats the point in going with the base type rsx motor (it has low compression ratio)?

    also i dont believe there are much differences in the BLOCK of a k20a or k20a2 or k20a3

    btw, i have a k20a3 for sale if you're intersted :D
