when you say "Relocating the alternator to avoid chassis material removal on 1988-1991 Civics & CRXs" do you mean that with this kit in a CRX you dont need to notch the area around the headlight?

Correct! You are the 2nd person to ask me that, so I probably need to update the wording a bit... :) Sorry if that was unclear...

you were pretty clear. i would have known for sure if i had already put a k20 in a CRX before. but i wasnt 100% on the clearance issues.

i'm coming to get on of these kits, the shifter plate and a BC shifter box pretty soon.

The answer to that question depends on what you’re building the car for as well as personal preference… If you drag the car a lot and want every advantage you can get, it’s probably a no-brainer to sacrifice P/S for the 5-10 HP advantage you will see. If the car is truly just a daily driver; and comfort is the primary goal, then P/S is the ticket. Obviously, tire width is a big factor, but also the stickier the tire and the heavier the wheel/tire combo, the more difficult it will be to steer as well. Personally, I do like P/S. At the same time, I pretty much need it for autoxing on 275 A6’s… I have been daily driving without P/S right now on some sticky and heavy 225 RA1’s on 8” rims, and no-P/S isn’t all that bad. I do enjoy being able to feel the road a bit more. At the same time, I used to be able to parallel park like a champ; now I must look like some grandma taking her good old time… It’s a tough call, and one that has no concrete answer unless you’ve experienced both options for yourself. Not certain how much I helped with that answer... :eek:
