Honestly, i think you could have gotten it cheaper if you shop around, but thats true with anything. As long as your happy you can't look at the price and be like sh!t, there is the same one for 300 bucks less. Anytime you buy something it'll always be like that.

Well, you paid a lot. About $1000 more. You can get a k20a for $4500 at some places. Just motor+tranny+ecu.

They have differences like the LSD, final drive, higher compression, cams, etc...

It really depends on your plans for the motor... Both motors are nice...

If your future plans include turbo, then the type-s is better... If you want to go all out in a N/A setup then the type-s is better in my opinion..

If you want to add some bolt ons and be happy with 230-250 WHP then the type-r is a good choice...

A lot of type-s people are upgrading their motors with type-r cams, throttle bodies etc... By the time they are done spending money to match the type-r motor, they still do not have the same compression or the LSD with final drive...

Very common mod for the type-s is the toda head package that will run you around $2000. Jun, mugen and other companies are coming out with their own stuff....

If you paid for it, keep it and make sure you got everything in working condition... After all, the k series, swap craze has just began.

I called this one guy that had 2 type-s swaps and he wanted $10000 for both. Some people can afford to wait, and some people can afford the price. :)

nikos, don't you mean the Type-S is better for boost, and the Type-R is better for N/A?

In your post, you said the engine's good for both :p.

Well, I said "If you want to go all out in a N/A setup then the type-s is better in my opinion.. "

All out, meaning working on the head, porting, toda this, toda that, etc....
In that case, the type-r head wouldn't be of much help anymore....

Same with the b18c5 vs GSR motor.. If you are going to sleeve it, no point getting the type-r motor... That's what I meant.

Again that is my opinion. The red cover is sweet though :p
