Default K20z1 or K20A2 swap on Base RSX?

k20z1 or k20a2 which one of these is better and more reliable. And as far as parts for these engine, which will have more aftermarket parts offerred. Can I use same part for both engines? Please help me decide!

Just keep the engine you have! It's certainly fast enough. Anything you do like that will take a perfectly good car and turn it into a basket-case. Unless you already did that by screwing with the design of the air intake and all those other dumb things people do.

You're going to take a good car and turn it into a piece of crap that you won't be able to sell.

k20z1 comes with more aggressive cams. which will be better if your looking for performance if you plan on going all motor.as for k20a2 the best thing you can do is add boost. such as turbo or supercharger.i would go with k20z1 and make sure you change the tranny to the six speed manual.
