Default Best engine for a '93 Honda Del Sol?

What is the best engine for a '93 Del Sol. I was told a K20head and K24 block. What is the best stuff for my Del Sol that would increase the WHP and speed?

The best for a del slo? The stock one. It's a front wheel drive, 2 seat car that weighs 2700lbs. That's heavy considering the biggest engine it comes with is an all aluminum 1.6L 4 cylinder. Plus, it's front wheel drive. You can add all the power you want, but it's still going to be front wheel drive, and thus, never fast. The amount of money you pour into a commuter car like that, you could just buy something faster. Much faster.

I'd turbo your 1.6 engine or swap in a H22a. K20's will be expensive and like the other guy said you could buy a better car for that money. Its all about how much money you want to spend on being "unique".

H series engines are a joke. If you wana throw a rod go for it. They're weak and can't hold shit. I'd love to see a kswap'd del sol! But In your case if you want something that you can build off of I'd go with a b18c. Turbo and tune youll beat k series all day. And b series bolt right in, k series takes custom mounts n stuff to fit.
