Default Frank Build !!

After owning an rsx-s and seeing the power in k series; I figure it was time to get rid of it and go for some more power. Decided to do a frank build and put it into a hatchback civic. After all the thinking and planning to build a motor for a daily driver racing street car, I finally ended up with this set-up. Let me know what you guys think about this set-up or if you have any suggestions


Motor:
  • k24a1 bore to 87.5mm
  • Wiseco pistons 12.5:1 compression
  • k1 technology rods
  • Stock crank polished and grinded out
  • New k20a2 oil pump (anyone knows how to modify this to let the pump rev more? let me know. It has something to do with the spring?)


This is block after I got it back from the machine shop sitting in the garage being ready to be built.




This evening I just ordered the following from items for the head from Brian up at clubrsx. Cool dude help me with most of the stuff Should have this all in by wednesday. k20a2 head is getting polished and ported locally.
  • kelford stage 2 cams - wanted stage 3 but couldnt find them
  • Kelford Beehive Springs and Retainers
  • Supertech Intake and Exhaust Valve Seal Set (16)
  • Supertech Intake Valve Guide (single Guide)
  • Supertech Exhaust Valve Guide (single Guide)
  • Supertech 7 Retainer Keepers (32)
  • Supertech Single Intake Valve (36mm; Flat)
  • Supertech Exhaust Valves ( 31mm; Flat)
  • ARP K-Series Head Stud Kit
  • Competition Clutch 'Stage 4' Clutch & Ultra Lightweight Flywheel Combo

On the a1 block the a2 oil pump should just line up. You don't need to mod it.

You don't need to block anything on the K24A1
The type-S pump will spin that high, but you need to use a oil that will not cavitate at that RPM.

What are you going to do for a intake manifold and tb? Will you be running this on pump gas?

yes running on pump gas. motor is only touching 93 octane from shell gas station. i wish they sold e85 or race gas around where I lived but they dont anyways i thought you had to block and seal this whole right here so you wont loose any oil pressure?



but this is what i got in today from rob at "teamxxx"
87 mm cometic head gasket i will get the head gasket bored out to 87.5 since my block is bored out to the same size.


as far as intake manifold i'm going with a rbc ported and polished with a 74MM TB? let me know what you guys think!!!

Looks like a nice all motor setup. I had a similar setup too which was really nice minus the cams.
I'm glad my rocker assembly is going in to a nice build. Keep us updated!
