Both of those cars have whats called a V-Tec (Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control) Its pretty much an in-line-4 with different cam profiles that are changed by the ecu to improve efficiency and power. Most people like them because they have a lot of upgrade potential and are pretty easy to upgrade. I think they sound terrible but some people enjoy the sound. If you want to know a good racing engine a subaru boxer-4 is great and it doesn't sound like a mosquito. The s50b30 is an in-line-6 3 litre bmw engine that is pretty much considered one of the best street racing engines of all time.

a few good engines from japan are the Skyline RB26DETT and the Supra 2JZGTE. honda engines are nothing compared to these apart from maybe the C30A(NSX).

Coming back to the Skyline and Supra engines, what makes these engine so incredibly good is their reliability(both engines are known to handle 1000hp on stock internals) and there is basically a limitless supply of aftermarket parts

So what makes a good engine is how reliable and how much power it can handle and how many parts are available for that engine. No point having intentions of doing up a car when theres nothing available for it

I had a 2.5ltr V6 Twin Turbo Galant good car but there was no parts available for it so i could only do so much to it without spending and arm and a leg to get everything customised.

K20 Bitches!!!. The PERFORMANCE vtec not the economy vtec. Most VTEC engines are built for economy. The 06-11 civic si and 02-06 RSX-S have the 200HP with VTEC on all intake and exhaust valves.

all those motors are good. i'd recommend a b18c5 or b18c-R because they can beat k20's. stock or built. k20s are overpriced and way too hyped up.
