Honda's K20C1, better known as the engine powering the venerable Civic Type-R, is a powerful turbocharged 2.0L engine that for years has only been available as a crate engine for professional race teams. For years, Honda racing enthusiasts and fans have watched as the turbocharged K20C1 engine served as a staple in the HPD lineup of racing vehicles; powering HPD’s Type R TC and Type R TCR race cars as well as the successful F4 U.S. Championship and FR Americas Championship series.
Now, for the first time, any driver who dreams of victory can experience the adrenaline and belonging that powers Honda on the track with their very own HPD Crate Engine Package, specifically designed for easy, affordable, and reliable swap applications.
Each crate engine will come with an engine long block, alternator, turbocharger, and starter motor. Included within the optional Controls Package will be an HPD-developed ECU, engine swap harness, and accelerator pedal. Developed with ease-of-use in mind, the HPD ECU will be pre-tuned for convenient installation into a wide range of vehicles designated for off-highway applications, providing customers with HPD’s proven reliability and enhanced performance in their own racing vehicles.
The K20C1 crate engine is intended for the professional system integrator with design, fabrication, and performance tuning resources available. As an authorized Honda Performance Development Dealer, ScienceofSpeed offers technical support for customers and intends to offer an optional turn-key retrofit package for the Honda S2000 in the near future.
