Well, I have searched high and low and have come up with a few things for the swap. Here is what I have so far.

Engine- duh! www.jspecautosports.com is the best deal on Type R K motor.
Axles- Hasport
Harness Adapter- Hasport
Engine Mounts- Hasport
Radiator Hose Adapter- Hasport
Custom Intake- Haven't figured this one out yet.
Header- TSX Comptech
Fuel Rail- AEM
Fuel Regulator- AEM
Fuel Filter- AEM
Fuel Pump- Warlboro
Fuel Injectors- 550CC, but haven't figured out where to buy yet.
Ground Kit- Maybe have to customize this one? Or maybe custom wiring?
Spark Plugs- NGK iridium baby!
Spark Plug Wires- Nology baby!
P/S Pulley- Idle Pulley from a Civic SI
Radiator- And aftermarket for an RSX you can keep RSX hoses, or you can swap the condensor and the radiator in the EK and use 94-01 GSR hoses with little "riggin".
A/C- Can be custom, but have no info on this? Would really like to keep my A/C since I am in the arm pit, and it is hot as hell here! And I want to drive my car everyday.
Shifter Box- Still gotta call Hasport on this one?
Short Shifter- Have heard they make a custom one for this swap so you can use the RSX mount, but also heard to use the 90-97 Accord mount?
K-Pro- Definitely a must have.
Throttle Cable- K20A2 you need an EP3 cable and for a K20A you need a 1996 DX cable.
Custom Driveshaft- Heard this, but don't have any info.
Clutch- ACT

I'm also going to upgrade my battery to the Gel Optima yellow top. And the exhaust is going to have to be custom adapted.

Please if there is anything else I need to know, or if you have any info on any of this, please let me know. I am going to take extensive pictures of my swap, starting in February of 2005. I am going to try and make a very well thought out swap guide. I know Hasport left a lot out in that article in Sport Compact Car, I know, I have that magazine.

So far my total price for the swap and all these parts is around 8500 dollars and that is without the dyno tuning. Which should run around 500 dollars. Well, we will see how things go, or how many comments I get on this. :wink:

Well, my first comment is about the place you are thinking of buying the engine from. First of all, he is located in canada as you know so you will have to pay something extra for import tax. Also I am not sure how complete the swap is and is he will give you an uncut harness and will guarantee you all the sensors, Ecu, tranny etc...

About 6 months ago, I called him because at the time he was selling them on ebay for $6500 with the front suspension.

I run into a guy in clubrsx that appears to think that he almost got scammed by jspec so I would recommend ask him some questions.
His AIM name is CuzzinOlaf .

lol, last but not least, I did some research on his business and found out he was trying to sell it so at the time I felt uneasy about ordering 4-5 swaps at once from him.


As far the swap, your list looks good. To save money, I would use the golden eagle fuel rail and a cheap FPR since fuel is fuel...

Well, I will take your advice on this issue. I don't wanna get scammed, that is the last thing I need. :wink: Anyway, any other good places to buy the JDM engine from? I have also checked Ebay extensively, but I am scared to order off of there. Second, so my list looks good, is that all the parts I need??? Will the swap be painless as long as I have all this. If anyone has any info on the parts list, please let me know. I am trying to get a complete list together before March, when I plan on doing the swap so It will go as painless as possible. I have had a lot of trouble in the past on shit. Thanks.
