This is the dyno comparison from Shawn Hiller's car on the same dyno of course.

Both motors are pretty much stock with nice headers etc... The k20a has k pro vs the C5 that is running the stock ECU etc...

what are the mods ?

Both are stock..


The K motor has a custom prototype racing headers and a K-pro..
:?

so the b18c-r was bone stock ... no intake, exhaust or anything? ... while k20a has header, kpro? ... doesn't seem like a fair comparison to me ...

Ya the B18c5 has a Intake and exhaust ...That's it...

An ecu is not going to make a 40hp/50tq difference! Way to go, honda!

You know, the price of the Type R vs the K20a is about the same if you want them to be the same power level, and the K20 is still going to have mroe torque.

I know!! Come on I can read (but sometimes I chose not to).

Anyways I said that because people thought that a K20 with ecu against a B18c5 was unfair.
I know that the k20a will obviously put down more hp than any b18... my argument was that a k20a with intake, race header, exhaust, tuned hondata was on a dyno against a usdm (not even jdm) b18c5 with only intake, exhaust and untuned stock ecu. I realize that it's a dyno to compare, but imo, it's not a fair comparison

yes it does sound like a unfair test, but the k20a will always make more hp/torque as the b18c because it was designed to have the same characteristics(in a way) as the b18c but also has an extra 200cc of displacement.

There is a lot more to it than an extra 200cc
of course but i didnt want to go into details, which is why i said "designed to have the same characteristics as the b18c(in a way)"; which is pretty much flat torque band, VTEC(in this case a improved one), a good flowing head, and high-rev.

i've seen vids where dc5r's destroy dc2r's...obvously not stock, but maybe stock for stock the dc2r has a chance?
