I have 3 Integras a daily a mildly modified one and roller, plus recently bought a parts car. Two of the plans are K swap them starting with my nicest one.
I'm swapping k20a2 with 02 civic si 5-speed transmission. Currently need fuel system, conversion harness and figure out driveshaft axle stuff. I'm going to start the swap next week and go from there. That way I can see what I need and go from there minus whats mentioned above. So Any tips on anything using the DC2 chassis
for the swap?
What's the best way to mount the OEM Type S shifter box? mounting plate or karcepts style?
Fuel system trying to run all -8AN or -6AN with upgraded pump regular braided hose, push-lock hose or PTFE?
Axles I have Type-S axles but read Ep3 axles work perfect and so do RSX base model are this direct change over?
Cant I press front hubs in for 36mm or do I have to do a 5 lug conversion?
ABS removal from my car using manual rack do I need to change the brake master cylinder as well?
Those who have used amazon or eBay parts what's good for temporary use until switched out to name brand?

Any links to write-ups or DIY information appreciated read a lot and searched on here and many other places
but mot information is more towards Ek and eg models.

currently with running rebuilt LS B18b1
