Just to straighten out a few things things,i have a 03 euro accord 2.4 6 speed(tsx) on the block it says k24a3-now if i was to believe everything i read i would apparantly have the slowest of the k24's with only half a vtec mech on one cam,WRONG,IT HAS 3 LOBES ON EACH CYLINDER ON BOTH CAMS AND VTC AND A DYNO RUN OF 205BHP-just to clear things up .So i want to see no more about the euro accords only having vtec-e
interesting! mine dose 200hp on wheels but only after Mugen catback and Mugen carbon inteakbox and air filter instalation.

sucks for the ep3 owners
Not if you have a Type R :worship:

Speaking of, I couldn't really find much on the engine in my car? Being the JDM model it's good for approx 215hp and revs out to 8,500rpm but does it use i-VTEC or real VTEC? I ask because it doesn't seem to TEC as hard as my old B18cr used to

i-vtec IS real vtec,only better


the reason it does'nt seem to "tec" as hard is it is a much smoother engine. If you were to tune the vtec crossover to a higher rpm and detune the mid-range a bit K-series vtec would hit just as hard as b-series vtec..but fortunately we have the better tuning from the factory and we have a much better midrange.

Oh yep. That makes sense. I just kinda miss the outrageous boooBAAAA noise my teg used to make. Gotta move with the times though. And I love the low down pull the civic has over my old integra.

the K20Z3(originally found in the 8th gen civic si) is drive by wire,there's only a wire that branches off the engine harness that goes to the throttlebody.

once the Z3 is in another chassis you don't have to utilize the DBW,you can bolt the correct throttlebody on and the cable bracket and be good to go. Yo

I have a question, I'm new at modding engine so don't laught at me...
I currently own an Acura Csx with the K20Z2 engine and auto transmission.
I was wondering if I could swap a k20A type r engine but keep my transmission... I know someone who currently sell only the engine.
What would I need? Is it feasable?

Anything can be done. But in reality auto trans from Honda aren't that reliable, furthermore the gears would drop off and not be to match them high revs the r motor is made for.
