Hows it going guys?

Well I guess i'll start with a little back story on myself:

I have had my accord for about 3 years now, started out pretty much stock, and quickly became addicted. I swapped out the f22 for a h22a4 and made 191whp with just bolt ons, ran that for a year then it crapped the bed. I started piecing together the parts for a h23 vtec build, but then realized, why not go k series.

So as it is right now my accord sits without a motor.

Here are my plans:
K24a4 block
CP 11.5:1 pistons(maybe .5 or 1mm over bore whats your thoughts?)
K20a2 head
Skunk2 cams
K pro

Call it good at that for now to get the accord back on the road, hopefully make 250ish whp and run at least 13s at the track.

So what do you guys think?

That is true, but i'm afraid it will be slower than the h powered one. But perhaps it is a better idea, then either next winter or the one after completely pull it and build it.

But you can't run a k20a2 head with k24a4 pistons, so I would have to swap those out ahead of time.

Whats a safe amount to over bore the stock sleeves?

And with CP pistons they are meant to be used with a k24a4 with k20 head so I assume that you can keep the K24a4 rods or do you need k24a2 rods

its all a matter of opinion....most will say 88 for n/a...less for boost...if you need to change the pistons change the rods as well.....
