Of course I remember.

I was just wondering about importautosalvage swaps. What the consist of.

Ive dealt with them in the past. Radiator, skunk2 extended studs, skunk 2 lugs came from them.

I found that you also need to get the IAT sensor.

Air temp sensor that goes into the stock airbox. they are 30 at the dealer list price and cost is like 25.

I just wanna make sure when ppl get their swaps that it is literally everything vs. like a b series just motor trans ecu axles and harness. Ppl need a little more with this one.

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?

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.

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.

Now from reading posts, most people are getting engines from a wreck, like I did for my A2. This is alot cheaper, and alot easier to get a hold of. From my experience, a complete swap should run anywhere in the $3,000.00 - $5,000.00 US range.
