Default K swaps

I was just curious to no if a lot of people are running k series now, and if so what kind of swap you have running.

Nope, mostly D powered Hondas in DSM. Heck, even the Integra guys are throwing D's in some of theirs.

Yeah, as far as K swapped cars around here, I think we are back down to 1 or 2 in the area. Still a lot of power in a B/H series, and a lot of money to spend for a K.

Tom is "special k"

I don't know if he's on here much. He works at Lithia Motors, I think.

Default Re: K swaps

well first of all, k swap is very expensive to most people, even tho parts are alot cheaper now days but to do proper k swap takes $4000-$9000

first of all, you need to join k20a.org it has all the info and parts you need to look for.

for em2, your in luck, everything from rsx pretty much swaps over like eg and dc's

if you can find a rear ended rsx-s, you can swap just about everything over include the dash etc.

and i think it would actually be alot cheaper than swap in eg/dc/ek since you dont need all the swap parts since everything oem works.

you can pm me on here i can try help you out. i believe there is only 3 k swap cars in des moines, tom (special k) which is dopest one! and other guy with crx that isnt finish yet (cant wait) and me, k20a2 95 gsr sedan. but i longer live in iowa anymore.

Default Re: K swaps

K swaps aren't cheap enough for people around here. Heck I might even go as far as saying even a b series swap is to expensive for 50% of the people around here.
