So i just recieved my motor and I had a few questions. I noticed that it is missing a few things. I didn't have time to really sit down and check it out, but I did snap a few pictures. So maybe you guys can help me out a little.
Just post up anything that you can notice is missing...

Also in this first picture can anyone tell me what type of tranny may have been attached to this motor? (Auto or manual)


I know I didn't get my P/S pump which I was hoping for, but it seems that both wiring harness are there... I also was hoping to get the other section of the exhaust mani so i could run the OEM setup for a little while, so i can save for a nice header...

I am thinking about trying to use the TSX tranny but I gotta find a mount...

If not probly a uSDM K20a2 tranny. I also am going to be looking for an LSD, I am pretty sure they make one for the K20a2 but not to sure about the K24a2...

So we are missing a starter, P/S pump, and half of my Exhaust mani. Also didn't get my OEM Computer or axles which I was supposed to get...

Also do these K motors have Distributors?

no distributors, they have individualized coils. If you take the cover off the middle of the valve cover you'll see them. individualized coils > distributor

yah, thats what i figured. My dad was trying to tell me that it didn't come with spark plugs. when I ttok off the cover and showed them to him he told me, no I think those are the injectors. then I ttok off theother cover and he said, ohh I guess those are the sparks plugs...

I guess we were both wrong. Individualized coils, ehh? I bet those are pretty expensive to replace...

So the starter would go where that big hole is in the tranny area correct?

Correct, It slides under the intake manifold into the tranny. Looks like this motor came out of an Automatic. You are going to need a flywheel and intermidate shaft as well.

Looks clean how many miles?

Should be between 10-100, I got it from Alberto on H-T.

It was supposed to be a manual... anything i am going to need to change over to make it run correctly in a manual form?

get an RSX-S harness, get a RSX tB, you need a jackshaft, match's the tranny your getting (i used 5 speed one) missing some stuff on the rear of engine but all cosmetic sheilds etc.. no biggy.

motor looks intact

no ps,
no alt,
no compressor
no jackshaft
Wrong wiring harness
wrong tb
change passenger block mount to "crv one" top mount use RSX (any)

you need the log flywheel bolts from a staindard, not auto, and get a flywheel, i suggest the CRV flywheel and clutch, been giving mine hell, and still perfect, after many many many hard lauches and naildown.

if you look at the CRV clutch compared to the RSX-S you'll noticed something different ;)

with the top parts and a couple wiring changes you be ok..

if you change the manifold you must change the rail also, but the injectors are tigher to install in another manifold.. be careful removing them not to rip the o-rings.

oh and Kpro must.. :)

thank nikos, i woudln't have seen this post, been occupied working on my new motor...

goodluck!

alright cool, I think I am going to be using a PnP harness from one of the few distributors so I shouldn't need the new RSX harness right? (If I get an RSX PNP harness for an RSX)

which compressor would you be reffering to? and jackshaft? and by wrong throttle body you mean I got to get rid of the drive by wire right? and new mounts, I'll need these even if I get the Hasport or Hybrid mounts?

You think the CRV stuff would be better than any aftermarket stuff? I am going to try and use the TSX tranny...
