Newer accords and CRVs have K24s. People are putting K20 heads on those. Although I hear those set ups aren't very reliable. The TSX engine is expensive, and has a pesky drive by wire system.

The K24 is not expensive and DBW is easily by-passed. K24 long blocks go for around $1300 to $1500

Can a RSX type-s or civic si intake manifold and throttle body mount to a TSX head no prob? If so, I assume you'd have to change the ECU also to by-pass the DBW.

Also, is the TSX long block not more expensive? I've heard it has stronger internals.

The ecu needs to be changed anyway because the fuel maps in the K20's ecu's are alot more agressive. If anyone does this hybrid setup I suggest a Hondata K-Pro ecu. Also they are that cheap but there is alot of money going into the swap than just the long block

TSX engines are still pretty damn hard to find, and will definitely cost you. The Accord and CRV engines are different beasts, and cost a lot less.

The CTR is built in both the UK and Japan, but they both differ from each other. We have the older model Accord which is a 220bhp type-r but there isnt a type-r in the newer shape that im aware of.
