    I dunno if I'd say that everyone still wants the B-Series motors..the K-Series is rapidly becoming the new B-Series. As far as specs go, if the motor is from a TSX, then that's an awesome find. You're looking at 200+ horse and a 6-speed manual tranny. If it's from an Accord, CR-V, or Element than it's about 160ish horse, and probably a 5-speed manual or 4-speed auto.

    There's actually two different versions of i-VTEC. The RSX, TSX, and the new Si Coupes have the "smart" version, and then the Accord, CR-V, and Element and the 02-05 Si Hatchback have a dumbed-down version that's more economical. Even those motors can make decent power though. Drop in a nice set of cams, all the bolt-ons, and do some tuning, and you'd see good numbers on a K24.

    I haven't heard of many K Swaps into Del Sols, but people definitely are doing this swap, mostly into Civics and Integras. Pick up any recent issue of Honda Tuning and you'll probably find at least one K-Swapped Civic or Teg as a feature car. Like everyone else said however, the wiring will be difficult, and the swap itself won't be easy. You'd need custom mounts, and it definitely won't bolt up to your stock transmission. The K-Series motors spin the opposite direction from B and D motors, so they sit on the left side of the engine bay, with the header facing the back of the engine bay. You'd have to use a K-Series tranny and that would require custom mounts and probably some cutting and fabrication.

    It would be an awesome swap if you've got the money and patience to get it done, but it sure as hell won't be cheap.

    yea that is pretty smart just buy one already done
    if i had enough money i WANT to do it myself..so ill have the pride of saying i did it myself...everyone flipped when i told them i converted my car to manual...they were like WTF...its a good vibe..
    yea with my sol i beat a F250 with a 7.9 swap out of the excursion 5 speed manual..with a fucking turbo the size of a basektball...i hooked up good on the line he started pulling ahead..as soon as vtec kicked in ...i was gone..by 3rd gear i was already ahead and 1/4 mile down the road i was 4 car lengths...and all i did to it was put a SI tranny on it, stock airbox and everything, Stage 1 exedy clutch
    i wanna do a mini me swap on this EG for now...is this a good thing.i already got all the parts...what does this accomplish..i have a P28 from my sol and the D16z6 head...would this increase HP??torque?? its not making displacement...why does some ppl do theese??

    Engine Code

    how do i know what's My Civic's engine code?
    i tried searching the internet and honda site for the VIN number, just to find out what's my engine code, but nothing.
    it's like my VIN number doesn't exist.
