Default Is there any vtec engine i can swap into my 2006 Honda civic sedan like the k20z3?

it currently has the stock r18a1, also i dont want any suggestions for the k20 thats used in the csx since it doesnt have the true vtec feeling.

I don't know what's available in CAN but k series swaps have been done multiple times on your chassis. You can go jdm k20a or usdm k20a2 or usdm z3 like you stated. They all run the ivtec system. You can also go the k24 route if you choose to do so.

yup you can swap any engine as long as the engine is newer or the same year as your car.

so for instance you could swap any k series engine but not h,b,d series engines cause those are for the last generation.

If your budget's big enough, we could stick a V12 in there.

And you'll instantaneously fall in love with that V12 feeling.
