K or H?

which engine is better for our 4doors, the K20 or the H22 I know the K20 is more expensive then the h22 but they both make jst about the same amount of HP and TQ.

Also this is just a random question. When doin a swap (B, H, K) on the EF chassis would I be able to keep A/C and P/S or just A/C?

All good questions, remember, the search button is your friend! lol. The k20 actually has, if I remember right, about 220 hp while the h22 is around 200ish hp. I also think the k20 is a lighter motor. Your other Q about the p/s a/c etc I dont know. Again, search button almost always knows all lol. Good luck

K series. By far the best motor Honda ever made. I don't have to justify this answer because search button is your friend.

K is more work but overall a much stronger motor. A/C should be a no go as I've never seen it installed on a sedan. If you could make your own hardlines then sure it could be done I would think.
