as for instalation, the type R (b18C5) is more or less the same as any B series swap...K20 is another thing.....stick with the B-series if your asking these questions......

if money is not an issue...
go for the rsx type-s motor or the tsx motor... your car will be much more appreciated...

and also, a type r can be done no problem.... just have to change the odb0 thing...... so get a nice ecu and chip it.... in terms of fitment, look at enjo or avid... they should have mounts for you to throw those motor into your ef no problem... get urethane inserts too... but with a more powerful motor... get urethane bushings all around... nicer suspension too.... in terms of hood, i'm not too sure... but if it doesn't fit, customizing one will be within your budget anyways..... however, whichever motor you throw in... boost that **** later too if you got $$$... its gonna be a nice show car or track car..... however, if you wanna be even more rare (not that you're the first one), put in a tsx or rsx type s motor instead of type-r... the b18c5 is still nice, but eventually the b-series will not be as sounding as the k-series... 2cents hpe you appreciated...

I say stick with the B18 its much lighter then the k20 or k24 and its not a tight fit, also the k has a total diff set up in intake an piping and crap like that and i personally think the ITR or CTR motor can handle better when it comes to boost cuz u dont want sumthing thats soooo heavy in front of ur car right!? u want to also move around in ur engine bay when installing **** cuz i now a guy in barrie who has k24 in a 90ef and trust me he had to mod the whole bay out cuz the fittment is totally diff! but hey come to a official civic meet i hav a JDM ef also we should hang out sum time i dont see many EF's out there so it would make my day to see sum EF's in a meet so we can talk about or mods and plans and wat not's cuz sure i like too talk about bubble's coupes etc but i would like to hear a ef owners opinion on things like how u did this and that cuz we need to hang out sooner or laterEF's r going to b ancient gone!

BTW good luck wit ur motor and pm me let me know how it goes cuz i would like to c the final touch.

Question BOTH!!!????

k20 or b18c5 turbo or super charged what would work better i always like the super charger but cant always go my way its all about special k series


i dont now if possible but if ur sticking wit the B18C5 then i can send u a link to jackson racing on their intake manifold supercharger which will fit any B series motor and if possible u can hook up a turbo im not sure but i hav seen it done ONCE!!!

honest to god, and i didnt now u were a girl thats even a bonus
ur the 1st to go all out which really is brave of u and kool at the same time like i said u hav my support all the way!

if it's your winter beater don't boost.

Now between the b18c5 and the k20 it's all a matter of what you want. Do you want originality? Or do you want speed? With the money you would spend on installing and purchasing a k-series you could add on to the b18c5 and have one powerful engine. If you want to be original go with the k-series, you'll get much more respect, but you'll be paying a lot more than you would a b-series.

Goodluck.

it is possible to boost a b18c5. Turbocharing IMO is better than supercharging since you can always upgrade your turbo for more power. With a S/C you can only upgrade the pulleys and the power gain will be minimal.

if money is not an issue.
start of with a better car.
an ef is a waste of time and money for a k20 and still problems occur.


for example with a k20 hood clearance, underbody clearance, clutch setup, etc......


your better host would be an ek for a k20.
if you want b18c5 or k20 you can choose eg or ek personally i would go ek just for the clearance at the bottom.

I agree with Rukus, from what I've read the K series into an EF, while possible (I believe Hasport sells mounts for it now) is not at all a bolt in affair, lots of things have to be changed, if this is a "winter beater" stick with a B series, personally if it was a winter beater I would go with something that is a little better on gas, like a B18B or something, if its a beater

Quoted for the truth! There is so much poor information in this thread its unbelievable.

Both eg's and ek's are going for cheap now so choose a different platform. More issues not so much problems with K series swap, but worth while in the end. Either way I would stay away from boostin it if its your winter car, not worht the effort.
