Sounds like it's the K20a3, the base model for the RSX (not S) and the Ep3 as said above. it's only got 160hp, where the a2 has 200. K20a (JDM Civic Type R) has 220.

160 horsepower is still nothing to sneeze at in a light car such as a civic.

is it a good idea? i mean 1200$ seems better than $3000.. which is what ive been quoting for that engine. 40 hp difference or not.

hmmm. lemme think.

The A3 is cheap because it doesn't have near the potential of the A2. If you want a stock motor fine get it. If you plan to do mods don't bother.
