    Why did Acura Decide to from to THIS!

    Acura CSX K20



    To a bored out Civic Grade R18 to a R18




    Why would Honda not use the better motor...

    Thats not an R18

    You know we're getting 3 engine options, a 1.5 Hybrid, 2.0 and 2.4. If you want the same or better performance as the CSX you should really look into the 2.0 and 2.4 liter engines.

    I might be going for the 2.4L Inline 4 w/6-speed manual transmission

    ^ The 2.0 is an R20 which isn't as good. The K24 is nice however the K20 has produced higher HP numbers stock vs stock in some tests. The added torque down low will improve daily driving however.


    edit: Also there are no more K20's being built new.
