    So what do you guys think about this comparison ?

    Stock for stock the Ford 2.3L Ecoboost and the Honda K20C1 are quite closely matched and both are open deck blocks.

    Both seem to have their challenges when it comes to tuning, the Honda block seems to have the advantage but its still open deck and direct injection so its no walk in the park to tune either.

    The obvious drivetrain difference is FWD vs RWD and then the weight. The Ecoboost fastback with performance pack option is pretty agile despite being quite a big boy but the Honda performs way better than pretty much all FWD cars out there.
    I heard the Type R is not such a great daily, suspension and NVH isnt great nor is general comfort.

    Im not sure how many people would ever cross shop these but they are closer in many ways that people would probably admit.

    Yeah thats a certainty, Type Rs are a halo model for the Civic, so they will always command strong resale. Though Im wondering more from an engineering aspect.
