The car hasn't ran since it had the k20a2 swap that I did back in 07. Some time back in 2k10 I pulled it out and attempted a k24 build in this thread http://www.k20a.org/forum/showthread.php?t=76155 . I got pretty close but ended up parting it out. :alone:

With some motivation from friends and a trip to Honda Day 2k13 last year in Orlando I decided it was time to try again.

After the 2k10 part out the hatch hit rock bottom. It sat outside for a while till the clear coat dried up and cracked. Then she made it back inside the garage where random shit started to pile up on top of her. Depressing as fck...


Got to work



Then I realized I had no tools :wwhat: 75 bucks later at HF and...

Thought about what I wanted to do with the engine this time around. Was about to go all out NA and fully build it so I bought some DC 4.5's but thought about it some more and realized I wanted to get the car running as soon as possible so I'm going stock bottom end for now. I'll need new cams again :facepalm:

K20Z3 donor swap, pulled the head and tranny. Sold the bottom end.


OS 09 TSX Pistons


TSX Rods


ACL bearings that came with some scratched up mains. I'm still using them though fck it




ACL's are all on the loose end, rods too


New hardware for everything. Rod bolts main bolts head bolts etc.

Lol ok secret service, keep the confidential info :thud: I wasn't arguing at all, I was curious but my bad, damm:raisins:

Flat valves will not raise compression that high. Those cams are way too big for a stock block.

on this case they are a bit higher, 11. i think. 09 tsx pistons. if he resuface the head and throw in some flat he migth be lokking at a 11.5 maybe. it will be a good test. if he still got the cams?

This guy traded you those ITB's for that hogged out RBC way back when.
