For those of you who have tackled this swap before. What is the hardest part when dropping a K20 into an EG? Cutting the firewall for the shift linkage? The Hasport wire harnesses are all plug-n-play, right? No wiring vtec?

Looking to tackle this swap in the near future....

Thanks!!

Thanks for the info so far.

I personally think that this swap is actually easier and faster than the b-series swaps... you dont have to mess with a pin for shiftlinkage, and the wiring pulls right off......
I did my GSR into EG about 18 months ago. Wasn't that bad at all. Had a few bugs but with the snap of pics / posting them, help from the web had it running top notch.

Yes, the b!tchpin was indeed a tough one for me. Pop's had to give me a hand with that as well as putting in one of the axles :p

I've hit the gym and packed on about 27lbs, so this time I'm knocking it out myself. Of course I'll have the minor bugs and you guys will help me through them :up:

I love how the K motors look in the bays. Of course the power is what really has my :heart: set.

imo, i would have to say the hardest part about the swap is convincing your significant other to let you do the swap instead of paying off your $10,000 credit card bill. :up: :D

I just tricked my girl, I bought my motor swap for $3600 and she thought that was the total cost, now its up to $7500!! Shes not happy but I got away with it.
The swap really isn't that hard, I think getting all the parts together and the price is the worst part.

lmfao, True THAT one!

And I agree that the hardest part about ANY swap is getting all the parts amassed.. and convincing your buddies to drink the beer AFTER you've done some work ;-)

3-4 hours, damn...Not to thread-jack, but how long would a k20 swap take for a n00b who knows what he's doing theoretically, but didn't have any prior experience? :rolleyes:
