    Image removed. Sorry. No questions regarding the swap guys?

    BTW, I gained my torque back by doing the Airbox mod, instead of the short ram intake. I am planning on keeping a clean but functional setup. I feel that so far the power and look are working nicely together.

    Its an illusion, the lighting makes the drop look funny. I have about a 1 finger gap from the wheel well.

    or is it the way the pics are taken.

    No it is a small bay, even smaller than the RSX engine bay. This makes it tight for some mods. :) It looks even tighter with my stock box. Ill take a picture right now. brb

    :thumbsup: Very nice looking car. I am starting to like the new Si's.

    But yeah, that does look very very small compared to the older civic's engine bay's.

    not a fan of the new Si's but I like yours it really clean. is the K20A2 a JDM engine... if the designations are correct since it has 5 characters in it, it isnt JDM... right? I know nothing about the new Si or RSX-s or anything. i do love the TSX though...Comptech makes a Stainless Catback for them now! :pointlessInfo:

    K20A2 is the 200hp RSX Type S engine, check the Reference section on this site for a breakdown of the engine codes.

    Here is a picture of my engine bay with the airbox back in. (taken 5min ago)

    Very very nice! It almost looks like there's more room in my buddy Aaron's 2001 EX engine bay than there is in your Si... and he's got the same engine in there too.
