    straight from the refrence section here...
    also try a google search for honda civic si 2002 horsepower...
    first result had the HP rating...
    don't be so lazy

    and check hasport.com to see if they have a mount kit for it...

    Thank you for the info. Where is the reference section? Under the "article" section or what. I tried to search using that method first and I couldn't get it to work. I'm not trying to be lazy, I'm just new to using this site. Will the engine fit with the proper mounts?

    Thanks again.

    i dunno much about K series, you might be able to use stock mounts...
    or you may need a mount kit...

    google it up...
    look for write-ups on the swap

    This should be in the swap forum....but yes you can put a K-series motor in an EK. In fact hasport has a kit for it:
    http://hasport.com/Products/Mount%20Kits/Mount%20EKK1.htm
    The problem is, that there is a LOT of wiring to do. You have to rewire you're whole engine harness to get the K in there and I hear its a big bitch. Search arround, I know there are at least a few EK's with K20's in them, see if anyone has a how-to posted on the net.

    google.com is your friend, it is how I learned everything for my swap.

    Cool! I now know that I should have been more descriptive with the type of civic. Mine is the dreaded LX (which is why I'm swapin' the engine out this spring) I guess the b16a would be the way to go? The K20A3 won't fit my civic anyway. Atleast I got the hasport site to buy the right accessories. Thanks again for the advice and web links.
