all depends on the money u wanna spend, k20 will be faster but with the money you gonna spend putting it in and everything you could put that into the b18c and fully build it or turbo it

k20 will kick *** but it cost some money to get here where you will want her to be.

b18c is a good start but if your not putting somer higher compr pistons and a sutibale cam to go with your still gonan be missing something

what are you looking for from the motor ?

This is positive, so take it that way: Search. There have been maybe 50 different threads covering this EXACT topic across a number of subforums here. That includes comparisons from people who have owned and built both, with prices. I guarantee you'll find the answers to all your questions faster if you read through them.

B18C is a real nice one to use.... my preference for sure. I've got a '97 with the lsd swapped in my '93 del sol si, with basic bolt ons and cam gears... ran a 13.38 at the track. K20a will give better numbers, but it's going to be more $$$$

all that matters most is what you want. if money is not a problem, k20a would be the way to go. if you're looking more for a daily driver that still has plenty of power, stay with the b18c

whichever you decide... you'll still have a nice powerplant Click the image to open in full size.

No this FORUM is both but you're asking redundant questions that aren't specific.

You already answered your own question. Money no problem? K20 no problem.

If you're going by that, then it's gotta be K20. Did you even have to ask?
