Here's what you get with the $400 bare block..

everything enclosed in item 1



or for $1100 you get the complete assembly that includes pistons, rods, crank etc...



Since all I really need is the block +crank, if I buy just the bare block and the crank, it will come out to be close to $1100 which is the cost of the complete shortblock... Of course it is not 100% complete... It will still need some sensors, maybe water line... etc..

Can anyone that works for honda find out for us, what comes with the short block assembly? Asn what else I need to make it 100% working?

thanks a lot

Something to be mindful of, if you're not already aware:

The accord block will not accept the K20A(2) oil pump directly. The girdle has a raised ridge or hump right down the middle. The CRV K24A1 block does not have this ridge.

So, either you retain the accord block's oil pump/balance shaft assembly, or you can notch the K20A(2) oil pump so that it will clear the raised ridge and then bolt down onto the accord girdle. Other oil feed/return holes will need to be plugged as well on the accord girdle if adapting the K20A(2) oil pump.

Why won't the accord oil pump be enough? Isn't the balance shaft a good idea?
In the article from hasport of the k24/k20 how to. They said you don't need the extra weight or friction so you can use the simplier k20 oil pump.

I feel its good enough the way it is. But you can use either or.

For a street car that won't rev as high, you may want to use it to keep costs down. It will rob you of a little hp, but shouldn't matter if you're not building an all-motor drag application.

Can someone explain to me why is the Accord block cheaper than the CRV block. Ive searched on different websites and the prices are the same. Can someone tell me the difference of these two blocks and explain a little bit more what is the part that needs to be modified on the accord block?

Thanks for ur help

I work for a Honda Dealership... At the dealership we ordered a "complete head" for a S2000. When it came in it was the head with springs, valves, and seals already installed but everything else in a box. So I don't know if the block is like that also or if the head is like that or if it's like that because it's a S2000.

Nikos-The short block assembly comes with oil pan, crank, rods, and pistons preassembled. Nothing else. No sensors, wiring, water pump, timing belt, gaskets, etc.
