Honda C engine


Honda C engine

Honda's first V6 engines are members of a single family, the C-series. It is a 90° V6 design and is being phased out in favor of the newer 60° J-series.

C20A

The SOHC C20A is a 2.0 L version, producing 145 hp (108 kW). This was the first Honda V6 engine.

Applications; non-North America:

* 1985 Honda Legend

The C20AT was a turbocharged version, producing 190 hp (140 kW).

Applications; non-North America:
* 1989 Honda Legend
***NOTE: Honda made a "Wing-Turbo" Legend marketed under the Honda name and was only available in the Japanese Domestic Market. The turbo was used on C20AT engines and are extremely rare. The turbocharger used was a Variable Geometry turbo that Honda developed. The turbo used aerofoil style flappers all around the turbine housing. These "Wings", as Honda called them, were controlled by vacuum and by the Legend's ECU and they were constantly adjusted. Basically, at low speeds the wings would be nearly closed to speed and direct exhaust pressure precisely on the turbine wheel. At cruise speeds, the wings would be open and it would act like a much larger turbo to increase fuel economy. This car was really quick and really powerful, but the price premium over the standard Legend was too much for most so the car disappeared. This was one of the only production Hondas ever turbocharged from the factory, along with the new Acura RDX and the older Honda City's.

The SOHC C25A is a 2.5 L version, producing 165 hp (123 kW).
