I believe in the mag it gained 20 hp which was like base 165 and then went to 185, The torque was about the same gains. but didn't exceed 164 if I recall correctly. Mag is at shop... So in essence 185 max hp and 164 torque vs. type r with same mods intake header ex computer 210-230 hp with 161- 167 torque.
You're cracking me up dude. Keep an open mind, you're dissing something you have no experience with. You remind me of my son when I tried to get him to eat squash. "Oh no I'm not eating that stuff, it tastes horrible." He'd never tried it before.
Oh, and I love your, "This is an unbiased link that shows k24 bottom with k20a2 head" Why would I be biased? What's my motive? I don't sell any parts for block swaps. That project engine even went into a Civic Si which doesn't require a Hasport mount kit.
And I wouldn't get too caught up on the numbers your reciting. The dynos numbers quoted occurred on two different Dynojet dynos taken about 3-6 months apart. The accurate figures were taken on a Dynapack but Sport Compact Car will only quote Dynojet numbers.
Having driven Civics and Integras powered by: K24A, K24A with RSX head , K24A with RSX head and type R cams, K20A2, K20A3, K20A, and not to mention K20A supercharged, K24 with RSX head supercharged, built K20A2 with turbo, K20A with turbo and K20A2 with turbo, I was impressed.
I'll try to dig up the Dynapack numbers, maybe I kept them. This project was from August or September 2002.
