Hey ya'll this I believe is my first post here so I'd first like to say Hi! I've currently got a 95 del Sol that I'd eventually like to drop a K20 into which is of course why I'm here.
Now my first question...
What are the dimensions of a K20a, to include the tranny and all the parts I'd need off the original car to make be able to make a swap. Basically I'm looking for the info needed for shipping. I need the wieght and size and if anyone happens to know off hand, the things needed to be done to the engine before it can be shipped.

I think the engine and box was around 405lb's I think you also should get as much of the shifter set-up, clutch lines and axles as you can, along with the ECU and wiring.. so maybe 450+lbs all up..
As far as fitting it goes you should be able to use and EG conversion kit, but double check that. with the mount kit get a wiring kit aswell to save yourself some time and hassle. you should be able to find the thread on here about which axles to use and most other bits you'll need..

i don't know how much it would cost to ship something like that. but have you ever thought about renting a uhal trailer and coming down to socal and pick up a k20. there are a whole bunch of shops that sell k series motors. ask K20DC2R how he got is motor up to northcal.
just just some ideas. hope it helps.

Shipping a motor really isnt to bad. Freight shipping to a residence will be more...so if you or someone you know has a business address youll save some flow.

If your shipping within Cal. I guesstimate a couple hundred dollars. The last two engines I had shipped were b18c-r's out of Canada to Wyoming and I think the cost to ship each individual motor was 250 a piece.

Whoever your buying the engine from should know a good freight company and should take care of any shipping hassles. Be prepared however once the motor arrives that the trucker will probably have no way to unload it so bring some muscle and something to haul it away in.
