Faster daily driver, B16 or B18

Something you really want to build and take to the tracks, K20.

B16a engine is too small for the honda accord. K20a engine has a completly different configuration(basically turned 180 degress) to normal B series and H series, Exuast manifold on a K20a is at the back instead of the front. it could still fit but you would need a lot of work done on it.

Best engine i would recommend would be the H22A from top of the line prelude type S or accord euro R..220hp not bad..easy fit too

If you want to go all out and money is no object..go for a K20A head with a K24A block..Someone in New Zealand has done this to their EP Civic cranking out almost 300Hp with no turbo
