This is the first quote from SS Mag. It does not have same compression.
A series of volume tests were performed to determine the compression ratio. The goal was to be somewhere around the vicinity of 11:1. With the new Type R pistons in place, the compression ratio was raised to 11.5:1., which wouldn't be so bad, but pump gas sucks around these parts of the nation, and race gas gets very pricey if you're filling up every couple of days. After some serious reworking of the combustion chambers and using two head gaskets, it was finally brought down to 10.8:1.
Also the base is not the Type R it is an SI bottom end with type r pistons etc..
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.
I take it you must be from Honda Tech..... Your wittiness really kills me.
I was under the impression that you were some kind of professional.. My mistake. Sorry I misunderstood I apologize.
I simply stated my feelings on the matter and tried to provide proof of why.
Next time please try to keep it to the facts only and if I had a tissue box I'd give you one. Once again I apologize for giving you to much credit that you'd be a professional and stick with the facts only.
Yes C I understand.. The discussion of simply applying a stock k24 and a stock k20 type s head is not very beneficial in my eyes and apparently the dyno sheets that I have seen. Compared to the Type R.
Also I was comparing the price and quality of parts to have all that the type r has with tranny lsd etc compared to k24 stock bottom with k20 type s stock head and no lsd tranny.
In my opinion from what I have seen and researched type r is simply the best way to go. Now if you are planning on building a motor that's certainly another story but not this discussion.
