    or the same as the S2000 engine?

    It is similar inasmuch as it is a 4 cylinder 16 valve engine, but the F20C (S2000) engine is different in almost every way to the K20 (Civic type-R) engine

    OK. Was looking at one in a rally scruteneering and I think It looked very much like the S2000 unit.

    The K20 engine is a much better engine though if you could make it RWD. Especially the engine out of the integra which I have in my 205gti.

    As above really, why do you say it's a better engine?
