Got a quick question, ask away. I'm not going to tell you how to do a kswap. This way if its been asked 4million times, you won't get scarred for it. I'm trying to make that the point of this chat.

Now if I get one person that says search. I will give you a temporary ban. The whole point of this is to point the noobs in the right direction. But please read the DIY faq first, which is stickied at the top of the thread.

That is all, chat away!

Re: Nooob Chat I...Got questions, get in here

you should sticky this Drhonda:up:
I think my plan is that once it gets to a certain page length..say 50 pages. I'll close it and start a new one. I think once it gets used it will stay near the top anyway so it won't need to be stickied. We'll see how it goes.

Re: Nooob Chat I...Got questions, get in here

Aside from a dry sump setup, what oil pans do I have to chose from for better ground clearance?

motor: k20a2
trans: k20a2


I've read that some k24 pans can yield almost 1 1/2" of extra ground clearance! is this true? :D
actual extra clearance I do not know. But a steel pan will yield better clearance. You can use a k20a3 pan as well as the k24 steel pan.

Oh, something to think about before posting or making a new thread - have the question in the title. A thread title with "HEEEELLLLPPPP" does nothing. A thread title with "CEL P2301" or whatever will be much more useful. Make every post count; post as if you are actually talking to the people here face to face.

Re: Nooob Chat I...Got questions, get in here

I have an entry level question... Why is there no such thing as a K series swap kit? I have been really wanting to do this for a long time but I just can't shell out the $10-12 Gs required. A2 swaps go for reasonable prices now, however some of the parts necessary to make it all work aren't so reasonable. You would thing that there would be a market for this... I would buy anyway and I would think that many of the people just starting out would also. In this slow economic time, we need some deals!

the problem is that everyone wants something different.

Back in teh day Hybrid racing did a group buy on a swap kit. I'm not sure how well it went and what all came with it. But you could probably contact them for a "kit"
