what are the differences between the 2 engines? the 30 more horsepower is obvious but is their anything else?

when i get around to it (and when the car needs it) im either going to rebuild my type 1 engine or buy a working type 2 engine and just swap them. what do you guys think is better?

thanks!

Personally I would go with what you have and build it up. The difference will be erased with any engine build up. I do know that a type 1 5-spd is faster than a type 2 auto. That is all I got for now!

i think that the higher compression rate is waht is responsible for the extra horses. Not sure on if a type I five speed is faster than an LS auto coupe, or GS auto sedan.
If you wanna go all out, you can do a type II swap and change the tranny for a 6 speed, then you will have the ultimate legend.

Compression ratio is the same. 9.6

Difference is intake manifold (better resonance effect), heads (cams, intake valves), exhaust manifolds, cat convertor, muffler, ECU.

well when/if i get around to an engine rebuild ill think about it... if i rebuild my T1 engine itll probably be just as good (if not better) then a used T2 engine. i think the only real reason id get a T2 engine was if performance parts started showing up for T2 engines more then for T1 engines.

the transmission isnt really a problem with me, i dont "race" alot so an automatic is perfectly fine with me, sh1t i still beat half the integras i see on the road which are manuals, which says something about the T1 engine alone.

thanks for your response guys, your very helpful. right now the only way id really get a T2 engine is if i A) wanted a manual transmission (to race) or B) got it for really cheap.

Dont the type-1 engines do 0-60 in 7.3 sec.? and the type-2's do 0-60 in 8.3 seconds... maybe its all the extra weight...(heated seats, bigger air conditioner... power steering got heavier) I dunno... just something i heard.

I don't thinks so. You actually have the numbers swapped. The TYPE II autos do 7.2-7.3 0-60, while the TYPE II 6-Speed usually do it in 6.7 or so, and best of 6.3. Type I autos have been listed at anywhere from 7.8-8.3, while the 5-Speed TYPE I auto should be about .5 seconds faster than that. That means a TYPE I 5-Speed and a TYPE II auto will be a good race, with the drivers being the difference in the outcome.
