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.i'll be a 94 civic 4dr, yes ill be a tab bit heavier but im hoping with i/h/e and kpro ill reach my goal, again i'll be my daily driven car. im leaning towards the k24a2 cause of the Torque but i want a high reving car. again im pretty much a newbie.
All depends on what parts you use. Some companies parts are less expensive than others, but you generally get what you pay for.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..
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...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..
yes, you'll need the passenger side crv mount. i forgot the part number for ityea i think im going to stick with the k24a2 sounds kind of stupid but would the miles matter? yea lower the better but ive found tsx motors with 75xxx- 80xxx miles for only 2 grand or so. and would i be needing to get a crv mount?
