Hoping to get the clutch in the next couple days. I still have to get a motor but I know where I can get one. So I have some goodies coming in the mail.

Thanks man! I'm looking to swap in a k24a2 from a acura tsx. It will be stock going in until I figure out the tuning and stuff, then all the fast parts will go on. I promise I'll bring a touch of mazda to the honda engine to please the rotary gods🤣🤣🤣

Mmmhhh...to please the rotary gods you need a K20 engine and fit it for 9,500 rpm :D.

I wouldn't do that with the stock small block of the K24 nor the K20. But a proper built K20 manages that and if valvetrain is adapted for it, also above. The background, you may know that, is the piston accelerations will increase that much that piston-liner-clearance, main bearing and rod bearing clearances need as well as the weights to be adapted to that requirement. We talk about bolt forces of 2+ tons on each rod bolt when a 99 stroke block revs to 9400 rpm.

Anyway, I am looking forward to see that heart plant documented here. I hope you don't get issues with Valve cover to engine hood clearance.

K20 is nice too, but I want that extra grunt😈. it's going to be absolutely beautiful and amazing. This is going to be a road car. It won't see dragstrips or car shows. I will go balls to the wall on the engine after I get the motor in and ecu working and it's driving around just fine. I'm not worried about the hood. I'll cut it if need be. A hood is a super small price(to me) to get that motor in there. I'm worried about the steering since it's not rack and pinion but has a steering box and it's pitman arm is right there. I'll cross that bridge once I get there!

This ride is not planned in the slightest with the exception of the engine, trans, ecu. We all are going for a ride😂
