Havent had any probs like that with my A2 swap in my 03 Si. The only prob I have is my A2 exhaust manifold (header) rubbing on my sway bar.abarabboi said:Hey, i just did a k20a2 swap into my 02 civic, im having a problem though. For some reason every while i find ashes of rubber around the power steering area and it keeps getting into my alternator and messes it up. I dont have an a/c compressor, so im running a belt i bought from a store. Does anyone know why it would do that? Could it be because of the belt?
As for "Crate" K20A engines, there are only a few, Mugen and Spoon both sell them and the longblock runs around $8,000.00 - $10,000.00 Canadian. The idea and concept of a crate motor is an already built brand new engine from the factory or another supplier. For example, the Spoon and Mugen versions are engine bought directly from Honda Japan, then they are disassembled, balanced, blueprinted, and reassembled to factory spec. This provides a "perfect" engine that will put out more power than the factory engine.Lvep3 said:hey does anyone know roughly how much a crate k20a2 is? im thinking about putting it in my si
