    Good luck man... I'm sure it'll be sick when its done.

    It's kinda funny, I got the shit flamed out of me for suggesting a K in a 95 Lude project I had 3 years ago...

    Sorry I can't be of any help though. I got all the parts and just got the h23 out when the guy who owned the shop I worked at got arrested and had all the property on the premises taken, including my project.


    But I digress...

    Have fun and good luck... It'll be hella fun to drive when its done!

    :(

    i dont think its a good idea for the money but hey, he already got the motor is determined to do it so oh well. Its not smart to stick a 160hp K when you could get the same if not better results from building the H up.

    Only thing thatsfine is the fact that he plan on using the 2.4ltr's for later and do k24/k20 all motor. I told his brother (owner is in the army) he prolly wont feel a difference besides the torque. I hope i'm wrong:ph34r:

    slogan of the military...."a fool and his money are soon parted". the biggest waste of money EVER....

    go to war = hardest money ever earned

    spent on honda = biggest waste of money ever....

    well enough bitching. check out www.k20a.org. they are pretty much the premier K-series site. lots of parts there too.

    well the car is still sitting there for now. we need to take the motor out and send it to paint. then we can tackle the K. we have all been too busy lately so that sucks. i'll try to take pics of the car and stuff for your viewing pleasure.

    the owner doesnt have all that money. luckily we have gotten alot of it either at cost,used or bartering for work. like the paint job and such. the motor,mounts and stuff he did buy online. I dont think its a big waste of money. afterall its his money anyway. we'll see. it will be a sweet ride when its done with. quiet with all the dynamat,clean crisp audio system with redon interior. and of course a low mileage motor with plenty of torque for the lude.
