    i have a terrible story... i just bought my EP on wednesday... 2004 blue, HFP edition, 25k miles!!!!! and some bitch decided to pull out in front of me, and we collided ON FRIDAY!! i am so depressed, but i've decided instead of slitting my wrists, and pissing and moaning about it... i am going to put 100% of my available income into my car. SO, im looking for a clean motor/tranny swap. I'm pretty firmiliar with the A2 swap, but maybe looking for more. QUESTION!! --->>> ARE THERE MANY EP'S WITH F20C SWAPS??? If so, how difficult is it and how much would it be?? i want power...

    yes, i have insurance... but the cop took my license. he said that i got an out of state ticket that i didn't pay!! which i did pay, i might add. so the state i got the ticket in made me a licence number and suspended it. so i was "driving on a suspended license"...... so now i have a court date and im not sure when i'll get my license back. oh and a ticket for not having a license for the state i live in since i moved here over 60 days ago.

    so i see you have a lot of credibility... what is your opinion for big power gains?? im thinking about a JRSC-r and a k20a2... i don't want a turbo, if i don't keep it n/a, i would go with a supercharger

    well forget the f20c, and stay with a k20a2 or z1 or k20a. good header, exhaust cams rbc intake manifold,cold air and kpro will get you about 235-260whp. but if you want a supercharger there great on the k series.

    ahh... i see. i know it's easy to get parts for honda/acura apps, but since the z1 was only two years, is it any harder to find parts, or mod them to fit it? or would they be the same? what is the gearing like?

    Um, no offense...but don't you think you should maybe focus on your legal problems (i.e. getting your insurance situation straightened out and your license re-instated) before you worry about dumping a ton of money into your car? If you have no license then you shouldn't be driving right now anyway...

    am not driving right now actually.. and i will get them straitened out. But, for now i really don't want to think about that. sort of depressed! actually a lot, so i just wanna plan out some things that i can look forward to to cheer me up a bit. i have a friend sending me some parts from his EP he sold... ------>> spoon n1 muffler, injen CAI, jdm amber sidemarkers and window visors, short shifter and BLOX weighted shift knob... and a few other goodies :)

    Uhm. I have to side with Brutal on this one.


    Get the insurance/court fixed before you start screwing with the car. If you really did pay that out-of-state ticket, find the proof. Otherwise your insurance isn't going to cover ANYTHING, because you technically have no license.

    i might get a lawyer and see if i can't do some community service for some leway... i'll pay whatever fines i can just to get my lisence back.. thats all im worried about. i make about 800 a week, so if i only had the option to pay my way out of things that would be great...

    Why are you so secretive about what state you live in?

    As far as insurance goes I didn't have a license and they insured me (without the license) then covered me when this bitch sideswiped me when I had the Accord, then I traded the Accord in for the shitvic.


    How old are you anyway? My guess is 17-18 or younger, correct me if I'm wrong. I only say this young cause your mentality is that of a teenagers.

    I'm guessing you have an Si? Did you destroy the K banger that was in it? If you didn't why would you swap it for another K>

    Maybe I'm completely off on something here.....

    Right, I mean it's great that you have the money available to just be able to pay stuff off, but you also have to actually fix these problems. What good is a tricked-out car if you have no license and/or insurance?
