I was looking some pic of Japanese Accord SiR and SiR-Ts, and one pic showed an engine with a blue valve cover that had DOHC VTEC plastered on it and "F20B" stamped on the block.
The S2000 supposedly uses an F20, too, but I'm wondering what the difference in performance, design, pros and cons between the F20B and the H22 are...

the f20b in the accord is a dohc non vtec.....after 96 some of the sir-t's had two different series motors...one was a f20b and the other was an h22a1..before 96 the accords only came with the f20 in japan..in the us they only came with f22a1 sohc non-vtec, f22b1 sohc non vtec and f22b5 sohc vtec. and v4lu3s is right with torque and revs. the f20b was a road course engine that had hier revs and lower torque, this way they minimized whell spin when downshifting out of the corners. in japan all the f and h series motors had dual balance shafts except the h23.

some buddies of mine were doing a f20b into a 97 accord. it is a dohc vtec engine. alot of peopla say it is and that it isnt a destroked h22 but there are more diffs than displacement. it had been a wiring nightmare putting it into the 97 accord they got the car started and driving but it is still having a few issues. they also had an issue with the tranny i cant remember what it was though. ill see if i can post some more info on the engine.
^ yea yea LOL..you just opened my eyes up to the dam accord wagons in the other thread hahaha so yea..the wagons changed everything, now there is SUCH thing has H23A dohc VTECs AND F20B doch VTECs LOLOL
