i started my swap tonight, and my main goal is to keep power steering and a\c. So its still possible with to keep a\c you will also need custom lines.

I forget where I read it,but you can keep the a/c with a mix and match of a/c lines from various other honda's.
The p/s pump wont clear the stock hood line though.You will either have to get an aftermarket hood and clearance the supports,which still may not provide enough clearance,or fab a new bracket for the pump which mounts it lower,and run custom lines.

In my DC2, I kept both AC and P/S. AC lines were fabricated by a machine shop. It was easier and cheaper to do then trying to figure out how to mix and match. Plus, I was able to route the line the way I wanted to. Pics coming sometime next week.

kinda figured that Just wanted to se if anyone had done it. Think I am gonna flip the radiator and the condensor to oposite sides and probably move the accumulator. I am now waiting on fuel rail to come in. Will post picks as soon as I am done. I was also thinking of using a full size condesor or two oem across the front and possibly running 2 evaporators one for A/c and the other for an air box to help cool the air enetering the engine think it could be a cool idea. but that maybe later down the line. just don't know if it would be worth the draw on the system. If power made would equal minus or add to power lost by having the A/c on full time

Damn it....just found out the fabricated line leaks and need to have another one made. In the mean time, the shop went with a "mix and match? RSX line off the compressor, and Integra line for the back half. :x

Brian Hasty of www.fastbrakes.com has a/c on his K24 powered EG with Hasport mounts. I think he used the compressor hose ends from the K-series compressor and the other hose ends from the EG and had hoses made in between. You can email him from his website for specifics. He is using a K24 engine which is 19mm taller than the K20 and has no hood clearance issues with a stock hood and the Hasport mounts. Since the K24 clears the stock hood, I don't see any reason why p/s wouldn't clear as well.
