    It's very well worth it, though, expensive.

    Yes, it is basicly exactly like doing a k20a swap on an EG. The swap itself is pretty expensive, about 5500 for the engine, tranny, ecu, then you need to buy a harness, custom axles, mount kit from hasport, either a custom header or modify the stock one. The end result is an extremly fast and realivly light NA car.

    one of the magazines just had a issue featuring a EG hatch with a ITR engine(the K20 one). lots of cusom mounts, and stuff, but I think If you wait, hasport will be building mounts for it.....

    wiring is going to be a bitch though....

    I heard the K20a cant be lowered by a hoist into a civic, you have to raise the chassis onto the motor. Is this true?
