K20 hands down

Research each engine for yourself and youll see why the K20 is better

Timing chain - K20
Better ports - K20
Availablility - K20 (H22's will dry up)
Block/Sleeve strength - K20

There are alot of reasons why the K20 is better but the H22 isnt as cheap as you think once mounts and other misc swap parts are thrown into the mix....not to mention axles snapping etc...

K series is the next step for Honda tuners....the sooner you jump on board the faster youll be :twisted:

the best hting i think about the k-series engine compared to any other engine is that it has IVTEC... the capability for the ecu to Advance and retard your timing depending on the load you are putting on the motor, that really helps out on teh low end..... but just get a k20... its the future, and i definitely love my k20/eg now.....

First figure out how fast you want to go. Then figure out how much power it will take you to get there. Then compare price, reliability, weight, availability, and complication of install of the different engine combos. The k series has made it over 300 hp with a tune up price of around 10,000 (www.hytechexhaust.com). The H has made over 300 hp with a tune up price of 15,000 (www.endynracingengines.com). Of course it cost way more to swap in the k than the H. You will pay more in one area on engine A than engine B, and vise versa. Just don't waste your time and money buying 3 different motors, and trying 6 different headers, and getting your car dyno tuned 560 different times. Once you make that decision, stick with it. In the end its all about driving the car right. How fast do you want to go...

Also, when you guys refer to ports, be specific. The intake ports are far superior on the K20a & k20a2 than any other honda, but the exhaust ports have severe issues (cyl 1 & 4 have to make an awful zig zag to get to the header). For the life of me I can't understand why Honda did that.[/img]

well lets see k20 vs h22...... well depends on what u want, and this is my opinion here it goes. u got a 2.0l vs a 2.2l and to me there is no replacement for displacement ( and dont get all bent out of shape cause iam stating my oponion, anyways if ur looking for a 1/4 mile track car i would defff get a h22 or h23 bore and stroke that bad boy to a 2.5 ( if u got the h23) and slap a turbo on it and call it a day, but if ur looking for a street/track set up then k it is for many reasons. so it all depends on what ur going after and how deep ur pockets are cause Hp will $$$$$$$ u. peace

So by that rational dont you think a K20head with a K24 block would make even more power :roll:

K series there is no question

Cheaper, more power and more reliability

Exactly then you can go to a fully built k24/k20 and kick the shit out of that h23/h22a turbo with a k series all motor. Just like Teampacman is doing. And guess what the build will be about the some price. :D
H22As suck!!!! Thats my opinion.

i don't have a k-swap yet but i feel that there is more advantages to a k than an h.
1. its lighter than a b-series swap
2. for a left hand drive car your cars coner weight is better
3. the motor is fliped around so theres more weight over the front wheels
4. timing chain :D
5. good gas milage about 31-39 highway

the only cons i can think of is one the price and two axles. (good thing i have 98 spec itr sus which uses 36mm nuts!

i'm sorry but h22a is over rated
