All good stories start somewhere and mine started like this. I was...
I currently have a 04 RSX with a k20a2 in it. I have blown 3 engines in this car so far. So, I figured its time to get something that can handle a little more than stock. I need an aggressive street cam because I want to make around 250hp to the wheels with a NA motor. I plan to keep the bottom...
I am getting ready to order this setup and just want to make sure I've got everything covered.
16 - valve seals - 12210-PZ1-004 & 12211-PZ1-004 (8 of each)
16- yellow outer spring - 14761-PCX-003
16 - red inner spring - 14752-PRB-A01
32- valve cotter - 14781-PRB-A02
I've already got the...
K-Series Motors are very popular here at TDC. Nhia brought us his RSX-S with high hopes of making more power out of his K20 N/A build. K-motors can be very responsive when coupled with top notch parts, and Nhia wanted to do it right when it came to the bolt-on's, cams and springs.
Welcome to my never ending build/progress thread; I say never ending because it seems whenever I think I'm close to the finish line, I always find something else I want or this or that, and like that it is now close to 6 years I own her.
I bought this 1996 Honda Civic DX Coupe in december of...
The car has been on the road for a month so far getting some miles on the motor.

hey i have a slightly used skunk2 kseries intake manifold forsale. just used for a dyno test between this and an rbc. it made the same power with a little more midrange on my stock k20a2 compared to my rbc. will make really good power over a stock manifold. eliminates problems like crx hood...
ill make it simple and sweet
this is one of the first tunes done by a dealer, tuned by me Daniel aka palmerblock @ Church Automotive Testing.... the cams were also installed by me:D
k20z3 stock block
ips k2 8620 cams
dual valvesprings w/ti retainers w/new keepers
Authentic SSR 4-1 header...
Got this from greece
The motor is a k24a with 87.5mm bore pistons. Stock head, big tube header made by ASP Stefan. High compression (around 14)
Vtec was set around 6200 RPM and as you can see the tuner is putting that low cam lobe to work.
Pistons were the custom IPS pistons I sold last...
Project Phoenix burning - yep, time to rebuild again.
A few weeks ago, my engine started making some noises. It sounded like rod knock so I ordered myself some new rod bearings and put them in. Sound persisted, but engine's compression was good, there was nothing in the oil when I replaced...
This is a dyno from a k24a motor with IPS kxv
Tuning was incomplete because they didn;t have time to finish due to a blown head gasket.. so no real ignition tuning or composite vtc etc..
k24a 99mm stock crank
CRV head with VTEC cams
4-1 header by Stefan at ASP
These are some results on a built k20 block with stock oem 86mm crank, aftermarket pistons, rods .
At this preliminary stage, I can tell you that IPS manifold is not used yet and the motor is not running the best possible piston and rod. However it is a very good starting point to show the...
IPS K2 8620 MarkII
rbc vs IPS manifold with 75mm TB
some 3 in exhuast
Tuned by Daniel aka Palmerbrock
This is the same motor that was posted a few days ago for a baseline.
I'm using k20a/itr cams with eibach evs valvesprings. I know the proper valve lash settings. However I wanted to find out who has played with valve lash settings? I know if you go tighter then you increase valve lift and can squeeze out a hair more power (more lift is the same as having a...
What he have here is a comparison of a custom IPS spec JE pistons designed for endurance racing and a "stock" off the shelf , regular JE piston.
The shelf JE piston specs:
J.E. 13.1:1 (87mm)
weighed 334.5 grams
its wristpin weighed 97.9 grams.
The IPS spec JE piston (endurance racing...
