And thunderbird, how can Honda make their own K-Series?

Honda can do anything. They can make a 90000 hp .5 liter N/A Inline 1, it would run 1s. It would also get 5 gs on the skidpad. Honda can do anything, right thunderbird?

This is the swap I was talking of, the "220hp" (really the ITR engine (makes 240-250hp stock) K20A from the 2002+ Integra Type-R for the Exige and Elise.

http://www.prototyperacing.com/k20kit.htm

Check out those dyno charts...

http://www.prototyperacing.com/dynok20b.htm
The only mod they did was add a new custom 4-2-1 header, still connected to the STOCK lotus exhaust and made 247.7hp/167tq at the WHEEL HUB. That translates into about 275-280 crank hp. All N/A. All Honda engine, less the exhaust. That power combined with they claim 1640lbs of car, that makes the power to weight ratio ~ 5.96lbs/hp. That is a better power/weight than a SRT-10 Viper or C6 Z06 for comparison.

I'll have to admit, the euro K series came first. But, I think we both can agree Honda's K series engine is much better. You can't argue with 230-240hp stock on a 2.0L I4 with no forced induction.

Honda's K series engine has nothing to do with Rovers. The Honda K series (which is comes in most basic forms of K20 and K24 2.0L and 2.4L engines) came out in the 2002 RSX/Civic Si and RSX-S. With a 160hp K20a3 and a 200hp K20a2 2.0L DOHC i-VTEC 16v fours.

Must have our wires crossed somewhere lol...you guys over there use alot of cosing for your engines....here, we tend to only use codes on certain engines...on most occasions anyway..Our K-Series is just that...a K-Series lol, it comes in 1.4, 1.6, 1.8 and 2.0litre guise and tends to be a crap engine overal lol

LOL...I know what you're saying, but what I'm attempting to say, is that you guys call it the K-Series because it has the letter 'K' at the begining of the engine code....Rovers K-Series is such, because that's what it's called....nothing to do with coding lol. I dont doubt we get that engine, but we just tend not to use engine codes unless ordering parts etc...

You'd be wrong. It's a performance sports machine, with cloth racing seats. Real heated leather power adjusting seats add too much weight
