Hows it going K20a.org, I joined this site in 2006 to learn a few things about the K-series and man did I. I went from wanting to do a K swap, back to a SOHC turbo, to stock SOHC back to doing a K swap and have not been any happier or BROKER then now:down::D lol.....but learning from all the posts that is on this lovely site and getting motivation from a lot of you ballers out there, I finally decided to make a build thread.

I'm gonna post some pics of parts etc that i have laying around. And this will be done in no particular order so sorry for the crappy iPhone pics as all of these are from my FaceBook and MySpace accounts:(

give me postive or negative feedback and I'll take what you guys say to heart but try to BE NICE lol.....its been a long 3-4 years collecting parts, buying things I didn't need or didn't know that I didn't need or couldn't use or just plain changing my mind. Its an expensive swap but I'm sure it'll be worth it in the end! Thanks to this site and a bunch of close friends I never gave up and I am not giving up! thanks and aloha:up:

I've got a EK coupe and honestly that was my first love and where a my money went. I've always wanted a hatch but couldn't find one so when a friend was selling this one I snatched it! The coupe is by far a whole lot more cleaner but, i've always loved the style of the hatch.

And btw....I LOVE your engine bay. A friend of mine suggested we paint it some bright color to catch peoples attention....still thinking about it! Maybe later

Haha I'm not a baller man, I'm broke as f*ck :up: I just got plastic love :p bit on all of my other setups I've always used shitty parts! On my K swap I figure do shit right, do it once! And hopefully it works out good. I've got quality pmotor parts but I gotta rock Rotas and stock seats etc! You mainland guys are inspiration for me!! Straight up BALLERS :up::up:

Dude.....I know exactly how you feel. I've been collecting parts for almost 4 years. It's so sad that my DSS 2.9 axles are brand new, 3.5 years old and have no warranty lol. And I never in my life thought I'd ever spend $1,200 on a damn header etc! But I'm sure it'll be well worth it! I wanna hear and feel why i gotta work so much to pay my credit card off :( haha
