hey guys im definately new to the k series game but i am hoping to do one, and i had some questions that if anybody could answer for me it would be greatly apreciated.

1. how much money am i going to be looking at spending on this hole project? the only thing i have right now is a 92 cx hatchback

2. how complicated is this swap to do? from what ive seen it looks basically now to be like any other swap because they make every thing you need for them

3. resources! what would be the cheapest resources for parts?

4. what ecu do you use to put the k-pro in? just any obd1 ecu or a different ecu

From what I see man, you need to do some research and some reading of the sticky forums man. Not to mean any harm by it man. You need to know what you are getting into.

i got an estimate for all the parts i needed from hybrid racing, plus a few extra i didnt need and it was around 4 grand, then the cost of the engine could be anywhere from 2-4 + grand depending on where you buy it

and im pretty sure you need k-pro or a type r ecu

Holy SHIT! Someone on here from Belpre...I thought i'd never see that. I went to Marietta College man, props to you for trying to be different out there.

there is a lot you need. you can do the swap cheaper though. the best source for parts is this very website, esp. right now. So many people are selling swap parts and motors for cheap, so many people are bailing on their swap projects because of the economy. If you have money now, its probably the best time to be buying stuff for your car. If you have 7500 right now, you can do the swap with ease. I think there is actually a guy selling a whole motor with mounts for like 4000 in the motor for sale section.

also like everyone said, just search, you'll find everything you need. good luck with it man. check the link in my signature. it has link to EVERYTHING! and if you need more help, shoot me a PM i'll help ya out.

hm I wonder who owns that, I still know a lot of people there but I havent been there in like 3 years. I used to have a black coupe out there on red volks with a built GSR. I raced some kid out there who had a S2000 on the bridge on the highway into WV on 50 I think I cant remember, hosed him, lol. I dont think I ever had my hatch out there. I was like the only person into cars out there then on campus that is, besides a professor who was into auto-X in his STi, lol.

lol nice, well theres a big group of us now, what color was the s2k? if it was white then i know the dude, his name is mark he come out often, but yeh this hatch is pretty baller, its rhd and they put type r brakes all round with s2k wheels, they even did the windshield wier conversion, its a really clean car, not sure of the motor thats in it because we dont know the guy nor have we seen him out and about, it just sits in the same spot but its awsome lookin, only one bad part about it is on the quarter panel somebody hit it :( looks like it happened while it sat there
