I suggest replacing the rods with aftermarket.
Any suggestions on where to find the aftermarket rods, I know the pistons are available, but I am not aware production runs being made on the rods, only custom orders.

No need for the head swap if you get the TSX complete...

you can do the same thing with the TSX head as far as cam advance goes you just have to get the cam gears modified, and as far as the ports you can port a TSX head just like the Type R is stock but you can't port the RSX head to be like the TSX head... :rolleyes:

the 2.4 liter is going to be a torque monster, why try and squeeze every HP out of it?

Yes, the tsx and ep3 tranny's are better suited for k24 application because of the k24 powerbands and the ep3's longer gears.

what kind of chassis are you planning on putting this motor in?

as of right now no one makes mounts for the TSX tranny, untill Hybrid finishes mine... :rolleyes:

I think the longer gears will be a nice compliment to the torquey power band of the 2.4L.

Iam gonna put it in my 96 hatch to replace my 98 spec JDM ITR motor nothing with the ITR I ran a 13.9569 at 95.77MPH with no mods, I just want to go with something different from everyone here in Michigan.

Does anyone know what time people are running with the TSX swap in the EK
