Learn Why You Should Upgrade from a B Series to a K Series Engine

Posted by Amit jivani on

K Series Camshaft

Still in love with your B18 or B20 engine? We’ve listed a few advantages of the K series engine that might change your mind. Find out some of the benefits below.


Take Advantage of Performance i-VTEC

With DOHC (dual-overhead camshaft) valvetrains and roller rockers, the K series engine reduces friction and provides the following benefits:

  • Variable timing control on the intake cam
  • For better fuel atomization, only one intake valve opens fully at low RPM
  • For improved engine breathing, both intake valves open fully at high RPM

Depending on what model of engine you decide on, you could have further benefits, including larger intake and exhaust ports (K20A2), a higher-flowing catalytic converter (K20Z1), internal balance shafts (K20Z3), or more!
