Noob Question about engine types

Ok Im still new to honda motors. Im on ebay looking at jdm importers. I Typed in H22a in the search bar. A JDM H22A Type S Accord EURO-R Engine Swap T2W4 LSD came up. So my questions are, What is a Euro-R? What is the diff Between a type S And type R?

Re: Noob Question about engine types

The Euro R engine ran higher compression, had better cams, and came with an LSD trans bolted to the side of it.

The Type S engine was rather similar, but had the ATTS, and as such is rather a hard task fitting up to a vehicle that wasn't originally endowed from the factory with such technology.

Re: Noob Question about engine types

The Euro-R also had better intake manifold than the Type S.
If I had my choice over the 2 engines, I'd get the Euro-R personally.

Re: Noob Question about engine types

the euro r is identifiable by a red top rocker cover, as colin rightfully states it runs higher compression and is 220 bhp as standard..a bit like the civic type r it has uprated cams, pistons, air intake and intake manifold

Re: Noob Question about engine types

It all depends on what you want to do with your engine. If you plan on building up a beast then since you'll be replacing most things anyway it would pay to start with a base engine imo. But if you just want a good engine to drop in and only do the minor breathing mods (I/H/E, tune) then the Euro R is the one I would reccommend.
