well, i'm tired of being one of those guys that just float around on the forum wishing i had one of those damn k swaps. getting a kswap has been one of my biggest goals for that past couple years. being 19 and in school doesn't make it much easier. but i would like for all of you to know that this sunday i will be going to pick up my first ever full 04' k20a2 swap. i'm so damn excited. everything is going to be done by myself; install, tuning, wiring, blah blah blah. all of it. look for a build thread soon people!

thanks guys! but its going in an EG. i can't go with anything else. i've owned 3 of those damn things already. might actually be going to look at another EG this weekend in chicago when i go pick up the swap in chicago. i just need a clean rust free shell to start with. i've already conacted the guy. here's the link for the car, tell me waht you guys think about it! i think the price is pretty damn good.

It's clean from the pics. Reasonable price as long as the interior and engine bay is also in good condition.

be careful with that advertised cx ...it has a rear windshield wiper (hatch glass replaced?) it has painted handles and side mirrors i cant see if it has a sunroof
if it has sunroof and rear disks with the wiper and painted handles its si if no sunroof then its a dx and if in fact it is a cx then he painted and replaced hatch (wonder what else he did)

thanks for the caution but i am well aware of this. if it comes down to it, i'll just check the VIN. as you can see from the pictures, there are no side moldings, and no sunroof. most likely the rear glass was replaced and a passenger side mirror was added in the mix.

haha, yeah. this is actually what i want to do in the future. be a damn good tuner. i've gone to an EFI101 class already but didnt have the funds in time for the advanced class. i'll be taking it when it comes up again in georgia in march. then after that, experience is what i'll need to get me up there.
