+1, if you're just looking at the engine and disregarding potential weight differences, tranny differences, etc., just look at the engine specs.

As far as economic/performance i-vtec in the accords, it's more economic. Our engines only get VTEC on the intake cam vs. the Civic SI/Acura RSX/TSX K-series have vtec on the exhaust cam as well. You can tell especially when comparing the 190hp/162tq k24 in accord to the 201hp/172tq k24 in 09 tsx. Significant difference from the added valve timing control and im sure it has a slightly more aggressive intake cam profile which id actually like to find out if it can be swapped out for the intake cam in our engines.

But i digress... I do have one question. Do our engines have direct injection? 10.5:1 compression/ratio is high for 87 octane. My H22A4 prelude was 10:1 but used 91+ octane. So what gives if it isn't direct injection? How does Honda prevent detonation?
