Did anyone ever come out with a mount kit that allows you to use the k24a2 transmission? A $6k budget will make the swap very difficult regardless of which swap you do. Take some time and come up with a pricelist so that you can know what to expect.

People look for a high revving engine, but they should look for an engine that produces power at the range that it will be used, a K24a2 in stock trim, will only produce power from what I have seen to 7500 to 7600 rpm and that it's very good, if you mod the Intake Cam gear, and install a K20a2 oil pump you can rev it around 8100 to 8200 and you will produce power until about 7900 rpm, which it's very good.

where is the redline for the k24a2? i was thinking of doing a k24a2 w/k20a2 tranny. other than the cost of the motor how much money would i be spending on parts to install? example mounts,wiring harness, ect..

All depends on what parts you use. Some companies parts are less expensive than others, but you generally get what you pay for.
There is a sticky in the EG/EK/DC section with a parts list, I would check that out.

to get to your goals, the k24a2 will be perfect for the job. and great for that chasiss that you're planning to do the swap on. like alot of others on this thread have said. a modified k20a2 vtc, k20a2 oil pump, and you should be a happy camper until you start wanting to be faster than high 12's...:p:p
