Well I am currently serving a tour over in Iraq right now and purchaisng items and having them mailed to my parents house. Im pretty sure by the time this is done the whole spare bedroom of theres will be full of my car parts.

I am putting together a k20/24 all motor build. ERL sleeved block 89bore 99 stroke 12:5:1 compression with a drag cartel head and IPS K10 Cams. I am starting completely from scratch here. Couple years ago i had an Si hatch with a 05 k swap and sold it like a dumbass. Oh well shit happens. Well about a month ago I decided to browse the forum again to see if i could find a cheap k swapped hatch...after contacting or trying to contact some guys on here about there cars for sale and never heard back i came across some IPS K10's brand new in the package. I always wnated a set of IPS cams and i figured if i got these cams then i would start my own build. Well low and behold and $1100 later i had some IPS K10 cams that were brand new. These cams alone gave me the motivation to start this build.

As of right now i dont even have a car. Im just gathering the parts that i want and need. I dont plan on going a cheap route on this build. This will be my first build ever an di wnat to do it right the first time.

My WHP goal for my NA setup is 340whp streetable. People may say thats a little much but its not out of reach. The car that im purchasing parts for is a 92-95 Cx. The car has to be a Cx or a Vx nothing else thats what i want and ill hold off to get it until i find the right one.

This build thread will be a slow process but will pay off in the end.

Here are some pictures of my old Si hatch. Some of you guys may have seen it on here for sale back in 2009. sorry about the size of the pictures. Thanks goes out to all my friend at Big Boy Racing who done this swap for me. they put the swap in the car for me and got the car running for me! thanks alot guys!

This will be my first k swap that i have ever done by myself. So lets see how this goes!:dance:







Here are the parts that i have gathered so far

Good build so far, looking forward to it :up:

What are your plans for the drivetrain?

as far as a transmission either a stock lsd equipped tranny from an Si or a k20a2 tranny with quaife whichever funds allow for really. as far as clutch im not sure i was gonna ask for opinions on that.
