Hi all. I have a '98 Torneo with the 1.8 SOHC V-TECH engine in it. Only done 84kms and goes alright. I am wanting a bit more grunt out of it and was wondering what the easiest conversion would be out of a 2.0ltr SOHC V-TECH (k20c?) or a b18c DOHC V-TECH. Also would the computer have to be modified to suit the DOHC engine?
i would go with the b18 engine as this the same one thats used in the interga type R with approx 170 - 197 bhp depending on tune.
might also find that its really on the headwork thats the main difference with the block being the same. this should mean that the engine mounts are the same.
also over hear ive found that most parts avalible for honda engines were for the intergra type R, Civic tye R and the s2k
bit of a pain in the rear when ive had 1.4i soch 16v and the 2.0 sohc 12v twin carb
hope it helps
