    K20z3 versus K24, thoughts and reviews?

    looking at an atom 3 with k20z3 (230hp), or they also have the k24... curious which one you guys prefer... i know the k20z3 is the si engine, versus the k24 which is tsx engine w/ more tq but lower rev's... i think an SC on the k24 would be ideal (loads of tq) but the k20z3 seems more like s2000 F20 fun!.

    both are atom 3's

    K24 with 12.5:1 and a good CNCed head.. Mine makes 280rwhp and 180 rwtq, should make 300rwhp 200 rwtq after a new intake and header. Even with the blower, the K20 Atoms make 160rwtq, 260rwhp.

    That being said, it may be a season before you need the power. These cars are spooky fast.

    I'll take a strong N/A motor over FI any day.
