@LotusElise i was watching a cam swap comparison video from the Tegiwa and was wondering if you could elaborate on this type of dyno reading ? Is this normal for a k20a2 to make low 200whp overseas ?
A stock K20 is good for 165 whp. What do you want to know specifically?

BTW, the correction factor calculation isn't correct for the rated conditions. It should be according DIN Norm 70020 Qv = 0.981 [-]. So the results should be even lower, because of the cold air temperature. Standard temperature is higher it is 20 °C 🧐...so enough teacher talk here 😄.

I was wondering why the dyno is showing so many readings other than just the wheel horsepower and torque more than anything. You must mean stock k20 as in the original exhaust manifold, intake air box and computer management yes ? I just thought 200whp was pretty low power output for a k20 with cams and a skunk2 manifold /header etc. and I’m also wondering how the other one made 263 lol

I had noticed a slight bit of oil on my driver side axle after my first couple trips and then after 45-50 miles it had turned more into an actual leak on my garage floor so today I got off work early and started on replacing the axle seal. After struggling with the axle for a good while it finally slid out and I find the culprit, a bent c clip. These yonaka 32mm swap axles have been great on this car so far and were reliable on my last k swap car, but I am definitely replacing these clips with oem ones (just ordered will arrive tomorrow am to Acura ) and the spare set I will be ordering is going to receive oem clips as well 👍

and with my eBay $5 pack of 20 crush washers we replaced the one for the drain plug, some people re-use but IMO once they crush its in the trash upon removal.

After letting the car run for 20-30 min on the stands with the wheels turning we have zero leaks (confirmed the next morning there was still no fluids on the ground) 👍👍. I tried to bleed some more air from the system during, I’m beginning to think my heater valve in the hose is somehow not working properly. Both the inlet and outlets to the heater core under the dash get very hot, the hoses get hot, both rad hoses get hot lol.... but my heat is still lukewarm at best with ECT @ 170-185. While driving temps lower to the upper 160s/170s the back to 185 once it’s idling at a stop for a bit. Has not risen above 187 since the initial air bubble passed. Fan is set to 187 if I remember correctly. 🤷‍♂️

Some goodies arrived today 👍 since it’s raining may as well work on the car 😅. Some new spark plugs, a very nice $18 fuel pump relay harness and my ev6 injector plugs for the 6.0 injectors ✅

Doesn’t get much better than this for under $20
