Does anyone know the differences between the F20A4 (-> Prelude '93) and the F20B3 (-> Accord Coupe '95) ?

I probably need a new engine and i'm able to get a F20A4 with 60k on it for 600..

The F20A4 has about 150bhp and the F20B3 has between 180-200 bhp.

F20A4 - SOHC non VTEC
F20B3 - DOHC VTEC

:D

Yep thx for the info.. hehe I could've gotten that info too..

But what I really mean is stuff about emissions and physical differences..

You would be hard pressed to find any differences between them visually anyway.

Only the compression ratio really is different. Bore=85mm Stroke=88.1mm.

Emmissions are pretty much identical.:D

If you can pick the F20A4 up for 600 (is that Euros or $ ??) go for it. It's pretty much easy to put in, no mods needed justs bolts in.

I am still trying to find an H22A7 ATR engine for mine:(

Nope didn't see it working.. but it's a company and you'll probably have some kind of warranty..
I also didn't have the chance to get a irl look at it either..
