A friend of mine has a totaled engine in his car after a minor accident and was seeking to make a significant upgrade without much of a hassle
to his car and budget

we live in egypt , and the engine we get for the 9th gen is a R16b which is a modifed r18 engine with 1600cc
puting around 125 hp
he was thinking of a engine with many possibilities for tuning and good potential but with less messing around with the mechanics and electronics

he put a target of around 200 HP

which one should he go for ?
r18
r20
k20
the new one , l15b7 turbo 1.5 L
giving in consideration the need to change his conventional 5 speed auto gear box to a cvt in that case ....
Cheers

or u all lost faith in your 9civics?
its only logic to think about this ...a small powerful engine with gr8 potential ?

It's a nice idea on paper, but I didn't buy my car because I have an endless amount of money. Yes this swap would be neat, no I don't have the money to make it possible.
