Bwahah yeah i've been looking around. and i haven't seen anyone with a F20 in a 4th Gen 'Lude. I mean its a solid engine. Just wondering if there is some reason that no one has put one in a 4th Gen.

the F20B DOHC you mean? that is an awesome motor. if/when I blow my H22, thats the motor I will be getting. It is the SiR Euro Accord motor. Very similar to the H22 except:

F20B
This engine was used in the 1997-2001 Honda Accord SiR and SiR-T (manual) in non-US countries. It uses a DOHC VTEC cylinder head similar to the H22A found in the Prelude but was designed to comply with many countries' sub-2.0 liter tax. The automatic transmission versions received the lower hp version, as it was tuned for more mid-range torque than its manual transmission counterpart.

Specifications

Accord SiR wagon, SiR-T(Type-R) F20B 97-01 2.0L
Valve train: 4 Cylinder, DOHC VTEC, 16 Valve
Bore: 85.0mm
Stroke: 88.0mm
Displacement: 1997cc
Torque: 144 LBS-FT @ 5500 RPM
Horsepower: 200 HP @ 7000 RPM
Red Line: 7200rpm
Compression: 11.0:1
Fuel Control: OBD-2

These specs say it redlines at 7200 rpm, but I've heard it is actually around 8000

There is a few reasons as to why you don't hear many of them. Here are a few

F20B DOHC Vtec motor
Prelude and Accord engines

Ok, 2.

We have these around quite often. The engine itself is also ligter then H22A. So if you'd go for handling it would be better then H22A. However on straight line comparison people on forums here would rather go for H22A rather then F20B when they do conversions on civics. Its not just cheaper but its got more torque even if its not as revy.

Also comparing Torneo and Accord, around the track they are similar because they balance themselfs. Torneo slightly lighter (+in corners) but less mid end torque (-exiting corners under first bit) .

Don't know the prices but if you can get it at the same price as a H22A I think it would be worth it for slapping it on a civic otherwise I'd leave the good ol' H22A for a prelude.
