1) clearance issue with k20 into eg? i have a 98 spec itr motor and its slammed and dont have any problems but whyle looking into this swap( k20) i saw a picture of a 92 eg and it was stock not lowered but the oil pan was still past the bumper? this worries me a bit cause i dont want to take the oil pan of whyle iam driving.... are people having any problems with clearance issues? are ur cars lowered? any way of getting around that issue?

2) what are prices lookin around into gettin one of these motors into an eg? i did the 98 spec itr motor motor swap myself , but this looks a bit tuff to do, cause of some fabrication with the mounts? and cause of the motor having to be pulled up instead of just dropping it in, so this one is for the guys that did this at there house, how did u manage to get around that problem?

3) any reputable shops in so cal that do these swaps? and if so can u guys give me the names or numbers to contact regarding this swap.. thanks

If youre car is slammed,you may have oil pan issues.With the swaps ive done,all of the cars have been dropped 1-3" and have had no problems.

You can get a complete type S swap for somewhere in the $3k range.
It will cost you a couple thousand more to finish the swap though,as you will need mounts,axles,a tsx or better header,pnp wiring harness,type R or K pro ecu,RSX radiator hoses,throttle cable,aftermarket regulator/fittings...etc..

Doing the engine swap is very similar to an H series swap,I think its a little easier though.If youve done a few engine swaps,than you should be able to figure this one out.

Fearless,

Why must a K Pro or a type R ECU be used? Is it for the fact that if a stock type S ECU is used, the car won't fire up due to the immobilizer?

Can't the ignition sender module be used just the same on the car to be swapped and plug it into the type S ECU? This way not only do you have the swap, but you also have the immobilizer to better protect your car and the swap.

I'm in the process of doing this project as well (K20A2 into DC2) and any help is greatly appreciated.

My goal for the car is to have a reliable daily driver that performs (read: will most likely od simple bolt-ons to this motor I/H/E). The immobilizer would be a great "feature" if there's anyway to keep it.

Thanks for any advice or direction on this.
