    Damn if it was newer and had less than 100k miles on it... and I didn't have the Si... I'd buy it.

    My g2 and I have been WAY too much. I can't get rid of her. I'm sure there's a few guys here who would shoot me if I did. After 8 years of 'marriage' to the damn thing... I finally got the turbo kit on the B16 and in about a year that motor comes out and I get the fully built B18C that's in the Si. I really need to post pictures of the Si's engine bay... and cut a sound clip of what she sounds like. Damn thing is a monster. But, for 12k, I'd sure hope it is.

    Now we have 2 Honda Fit Sports to commute with and the DA and EM are the race cars.

    If you don't get it fixed up the way you want to... no worries. We all have plans... just like you I want a K motor... I'm putting an auto K swap in the Fit one day. Give me a few years. ;)

    hence i said gimme a few years. :p

    Hell, the turbo took me 4 years to get pieced together. The swap in the beginning took 2 years to go from idea to done. Whether you get a K in your RSX or a K in your teg... no matter! Boost IS fun. Trust me.

    As it stands now, the cheapest part of the K swap is the engine. Seriously... for most applications, that is. But, I don't have 5k laying around right now. Sheesh I remember when B18C5s were 7k. Now they're about what... 3500? :(

    You'd have fun with a well matched turbo to your GSR. We tuned a GSR with an SC61 turbo that had 400 to the wheels. That thing was NASTY!

    1st welcome aboard. Next business of order, show me where you've seen itr swaps going for $1500, or else I call bullshit, the cheapest itr swap I've seen was $3000 and that's cause it was a 94 itr.
