Well as alot of you know I've always built my cars up, but they have always kind of been my daily so I could really never get too deep into the build cause I needed to get to work on Monday. I know all you guys can understand that, no job no honda.

Just an awesome photo!


This is pretty much how I got the car, but it had some really ugly blue wheels on it so I picked up some si's from a friend so it would atleast look decent for the time being. It's a 98 RS (no sunroof) 5 speed of course, but this RS has power windows. I always thought RS had all manual functions but I was wrong. I don't have any interior photos at the moment but I'll get some.




I don't know why I don't have any photos other than the front end, that's just what I took, but they werent taken with this thread in mind so I'll update it with better photography.

Stage 1: Tear down.
Sold the OEM 98 front end, hood, fenders, bumper, lights.





Bay


Before engine removal.


Old power house!!! 2hours after starting, I love how easy hondas are :)


New shit!
Avid black mounts



What you see here is my cabinet full of goodies, Avid mounts, type-S oil pump, type s oil pan, type s oil pump chain, pump tensioner and baffle, Karcepts A/C PS delete kit, and karcepts shifter box adapter.


And this is the new D series!

Sent to me from Ryan at Autofair honda(k20a.org vender) K24a1(CRV).






Disassembling, seems to be very clean inside, approx 40k miles.







Installing the Type-S oil pump, chain, tensioner, baffle, and oil pan.

Removal of CRV unit with balancing shafts. (no bueno for high rpms)


Plugged oil orfice that use to feed the k24 oil pump, if this isn't done you will have no oil pressure and youll break shit. So I coated a bolt in honda-bond and forced it in there, it isn't coming out, and it isnt leaking!


Difference in oil pump drive chains, type s is longer as you can see, it has a larger sprocket on the pump which cause it to spin at a faster ratio than the CRV pump.

Installed



I didn't get a photo of oil pan on cause I forgot. I started reassembling the timing chain and stuff and realized I need to wait since I'll be installing my type s head soon so I'll just have to do it all over again. I'll take more photos of some of my stuff tomorrow.

Swap parts purchased:
K24A1
05 K20Z1 Head
OEM RSX-S engine harness(will be completely un-loomed and re ran and entirely shrink wrapped my own custom way.)

I may have forgot some stuff but I'll always update

Parts I still need, if you know of any of these parts please let me know. Thank you

Transmission 5 or 6 speed (locally since shipping would be outrageous, unless you're willing to ship then get at me)
Clutch kit
Flywheel
Header
02-04 K-pro
All parts needed for the JDM ITR front end (hood, fenders, bumper, lip, grill, bumper support, radiator support, headlights. ALL OF IT
Intermediate shaft(half shaft)
Base RSX/EP3 axles
Karcepts CAI
Throttle body (atleast 70mm)
Full body coil-overs
Wheels and tires Hate me but I want either drag-dr29's, Rota circuit 10's, or Konig remembers. I'll only buy a 16" wheels and hopefully 7-8" width.

Plans, from above it's obvious I'm putting a k24/k20 frank in my integra with the JDM ITR front end. I will also be tucking and shaving the entire bay, repainting the bay and entire car Championship white. Feel free to comment or leave suggestions, if you are here just to hate, then go ahead and hate I like that to.

And Ryan, I don't think you'll have much of a choice on staying updated since I'm sure most of my orders from here on out will be from you.

As a matter of fact. Can you pm a shipped price on rdx injectors and a set of tsx pistons? And a price I just the tsx pistons. Thinking of doing it.

As the bay sits now. Gross, but itll make the before and after photos that much better.





Guy who had it before me butchered the shock towers, I wish people wouldn't do this type of stuff, now I guess I have to fab up a dome cover(RC style). Atleast then I can dump and not worry about it.

any engine without the balanceshaft setup you need to. the A2 pump is completley different


Ive never used AEM but Kpro is generally easier to find someone to tune it, From what I can tell, there isnt as many guys that are familiar with it that can tune it.

S2K clutch master cylinder. Clean clean clean. I wish I could delete my brake booster, but I've talked to a few that have done it and they don't recommend it for daily use.
