you are looking at 7000-8000 total with the motor, mounts, header, fuela rail, FPR, lines, hoses, harness, etc. without including labor if you have it done by a shopEKneedsK20A said:What's sup guys?Right now I have a gsr swap in my car.I am saving up to do a K20 swap.How much money does it cost do swap it in my hatch..I know the motor is around 5-6grand.How much does the other stuff cost?Thanks for the help.
I have seen it done but it requires some welding and plus its alot easier to just get an aftermarket one. You can get a golden eagle fuel rail through camp1320.com for a decent price.EKneedsK20A said:True Dat...Thanks alot.I will be doing the swap myself with a buddy in his garage.You can't use the stock fuel rail that comes with the motor?
The AC lines were a matter of figuring out which lines to start with...I used the 03 Accord compressor lines and had the fittings cut off to use a thicker wall hose. The stock 03 hoses are thin and kinked too easily. Spacing the fan forward was the next task so I used an aftermarket thinner fan and trimmed the stock fan bracket (which supports the AC condensor) to fit. It's not too pretty but it works and clears the hoses. I may trim it a bit better before I charge up the system.
I did magage to use the stock suction line from the firewall (the thin one) and snaked it around the new engine mount to a flex piece, then into the new receiver. The receiver is now in the hole on the passenger side frame rail.
I also decided to use the pressure switch in the receiver instead of the factory one on the condensor, mainly to make it cleaner.
I still need to make lower mounts for the condensor, but Hasport will be making a new lower support bar for the production kits and I'll probably wait for that...
I know hasport will be coming out with a header for like 400bucks, but i would just like to get my car running well, well enough to get me to school and back until i can fully build my head 8)nikos said:$2000-$3000 depending on what you want... Expensive header vs cheaper header... custom radiator vs DEL SOL, RSX radiator, etc....
