gotta get a different hood or cut the hell outa yours and weld/fiberglass a hump on it for clearance.
Read more =) That part should be common knowledge. You know you're lookin at a $8,000 swap right?

All your questions would be answered in record time if you read some of the other posts here. Few threads down there is one about linkage.
I actually don't know that much but i found a killer deal on a K20a yesterday and now it actually looks like we're really going to do the swap so today, i'm posting here instead of Honda-Tech lol.

pffffft =) I can't tell you my sources.
Deals are out there, you have to know people or watch every classified ad to find em.

I dunno if you can make a K20 a sleeper.. especially considering you'll need a big ass hood lol.

just use a SiR hood(i think you have to modify the latch or use the SiR radiator support t-bar); may not be able to run the ITBs without cutting them though.
