    sure its FWD, but that is what it is supposed to be. For what the car is "supposed" to do, it does a damn good job of doing it IMO

    eh, I dont know. The K-20 is a pretty nice motor. I would not go as far to say that the B18C1 and C5 own the K-20. Maybe for swaps they do because they are cheaper, but otherwise, in the intended car they are meant to be in, they are no better IMO.
    I had a GSR with a pretty heavy amount of bolt on's (intake, header, test pipe, catback, intake manifold, short shifter, clutch, flywheel, etc... just about every bolt on. With balding tires the best I could manage is a 14.6 but with better tires I could have probably gotten 14.5/14.4 or so. Either way, an 05' RSX-S with those mods would be pulling off low low 14's and 13's with a hondata.

    As far as the car itself though, yeah I would probably rather have a TypeR for handling purposes.

    You should have NO trouble getting rid of that motor I would think... ESPECIALLY in SoCal.

    I almost sold my wrx to get a hatch and swap out... If was still looking to do that I might very well have taken that engine off your hands.

    I assume you have posted on honda-tech in the forsale section right?

    Oh no, as far as numbers are concerned I KNOW K-20's always out perform, I was there when the K-20 EG swap was born I'm just saying I like the B18c more, for more sentimental and old school reasons.
