    Hey guys been dormant a while, but back on the forums again, locally i have found a complete k20a2 out of a type s rsx that needs the rod bearings replaced (the seller says there was a knock before pulled) for 1500, is it worth it to buy this motor and put it in my ek hatch? or buy another hatch to put it in? I have about 4500 dollars currently in cash ready to be dealt with. Let me know what you guys think as far as getting it fully swapped into my ek 97 hatch?? And what opinions are and such thanks fellow honda brothas!

    try www.k20a.org

    probably the best source for k-series info and parts.

    If it needs rod bearings, there's going to be more work involved than just slapping new bearings in it. You might have to machine the crank, possibly replace some of the rods, you might have to replace one or more pistons and re-hone the cylinders, might have to replace the oil pump if it got metal shavings in it, etc etc etc.

    Just something to think about before you get a 'killer deal' on a motor that 'just needs rod bearings' that could easily turn out costing you more than just buying a good-running-condition longblock from the get-go.

    Hence my post ;) I didnt buy it yet, asked for opinions, which were well worth the 5 minutes it took to post. Thanks guys i was thinkin the same thing but would be sick if it was "just replace the rod bearings" to have a sick k20a2 :) Thanks fellas

    for the amount of money you have, you could build a great b-series. i would rather do that thyan pay for 1/2 of a k-swap.

    hey bro i have a k20 eg hatch and civicious is right you might have to change alot moer then bearings. But then again k series swaps are unique and i already beat a fully built ls vtec with my hatch. it all depends on wat you want i say doing a k series swap in great and so is so is fully building a b series you can also do a fully built turbo b series

    Ask him if the transmission is still in perfect condition and try to buy that on the cheap, then find a different block to buy. You can also try to hit him up for the ECU.
