Hey guys, this sites awesome!! Anyways, my question is how I should build my 91 STD hatch suspension to handle the K's weight & power for streetable corner killing & eventually SCCA/track racing. (Drag isn't as key, 13 sec 1/4's ARE on my list :up: ) Here's my HB now. :eek: My Civic : /

1st, what OEM parts from DA integras, civic/crxs, or rsx, tsx, & EP Si's should I swap?

2nd, what aftermarket Civic or other model parts should I get? I know where to get EF civic stuff like coilovers/shocks/struts/control arms etc. Just Im a sohc guy, swap & K n00b.
This is a Daily Driver, just wanna do it right the 1st time. I.E. Should I swap in stronger hubs & knuckles than 4-bolt EF Si? What are decent spring rates for a taut, street K hatch? I have civic wagon front brakes, DA teg rears.

Any suggestions or part lists to upgrade for the K are welcome, remember that the swap is the last thing I'll do. I want the hatch fully prepped beforehand.

The final ?? is of the 6 K series engines I list, which would be best overall, RELIABLE & a good value? I ranked them like this so far. Also which tranny is geared best for road course duty?

1.) JDM K24A
2.) JDM K20A Integra Type R
3.) USDM K24A2 TSX
4.) USDM K20A2 Rsx type s
5.) hybrid: CRV block/type s or r head/itr,ctr tranny/TSX magnesium trans case
6.) Insert your engine idea here!

P.S., how much heavier is the K24a than a K20? Thanks in advance guys! Mahalo. :cool:
