First question: Do you have this kind of money to spend on your civic?
Second question: Do you have this kind of money to spend on your civic?
Third question: Do you have this kind of money to spend on your civic?

lol annnnyyywaaaayssssss. I would say go with swap. K20A + internals + 30psi boost = ~500whp.

save more! you will have a higher baseline whp (~170whp with the k20a, ~160whp with k20a2), and with smaller mods like I/H/E you will notice gains unlike with our d17s.

are you taking this to the track or do you just want some more power to your vic? auto or standard? if you want to push the vic to its fullest potential, the k20 swap is going to give you more base power, and then from there you can obviously build up the k20 and have a very fast car. the turbo is going to give you moderate gains depending on your tranny situation, but your not going to put away srt's and type-s's either. once again, if you are one of those folks where 'money isn't a issue', then k20 is nice.

get the k20a, build up the internals. if u turbo the stock engine, ull get the same or less HP has the k20a. if you dont want to spend 3 grand, buy a stolen k20(sorry, but it is the cheapest way)

who has a k20 swap

WHo in here has had a k20 swap. i heard you can get up to 30psi turbo into it. THat's way more than a civic. I rather go with the k20. that's what i'm planning on doing after i get my money saved up. If anyone has had a k20 swap talk to me and let me get your specs on it. (even if you don't have the turbo to go with it) thxs.

ya buy a k20, then buy just a turbo, intercooler, and blowoff valve, youll be set

i would do a swap. once you turbo our car thats pretty much it, and i think a type-s motor will still be faster. if you swap you still have the option of turboing it...

I would say k20 if you want more later, I/H/E and the Toda racing engine kit claim around 229 whp and 158 lb feet not too bad for an n/a ride
