Whats a better platform to build a K20A motor on? DC2, EK9, EG, CRX or a Delsol. Cause I want to race at the high school drags. so I got to buy one of these now cause I'm turnin 16 next month and I'm on a tight buget.
I would really be thankful for just one person to reply. THANKS!

EK9, if you want big numbers go FI. You probably wont see 10's out of that setup, maybe 11' s. When you stroke the motor you lose the streetability of it aswell.

... To tell you the truth kid, the way you want to start out driving is not good. From what I can tell you barley know anything about k-series this is not for newbies, just because you hear how good it is you want one.

You saying tight budget? hah just from that K-series is not for you, B-series is fine, before any of this k-series stuff was out it was all about the B's.

16 years old. Where do you live to get liscence at that age?

When I was, that young I was really stupid.


Ek9 for big HP numbers? WTF would you say that werd.

Best car for a k-series hybrid is the integra or the 92-95 civics.

Also, stop making these stupid post, or I will delete them

Your 15... get a clue tool bag newbie. Research, get a job and make some money before you go around wanting everything because you heard and read about the new wave of the future.

You will want a K24 block to stroke to 2.5.

EP3s are heavy, you'll need 350+hp and lighten the car considerably to achieve 10s.

I'm not saying it can't be done, but that would be a tough row to hoe.

I'm going to get an teg and save for the swap. but i'm going to get to know B series and I got a job! I make 12$ an hour. I'm a stump grinder and its better then workin at Mc D's for 5.50 an hour. Just dreamin about the motor swap. I just started my reseach a couple days ago so don't get all pissed off at me. Me and my friends and my sister are helpin with the swap as soon as i get every thing and it is very rare to find a girl like my sister that wants to work on cars.I'm just like any other newbie out there that wants the best parts for there car. so give me a break.

EG is the best chassis for K series and drag racing.

First of all welcome to k20a.org
I really like your enthusiasm. After reading your rensponses, you reminded me of that porsche 911 turbo video, where it talks about how boring life would be if we all drove the same car....... and ends with the phrase...

Cheers to the dreamers!!!

That's what I wanted to tell you... Dream big and you will do fine in your life.

Sure the can crush you and kill you. They can lay you out on Forty-second and Broadway and put the hoses on you and flush you in the sewers and put you ony the subway and carry out to Coney Island and bury you on the Ferris Wheel. but I refuse to sit here and worry about dying.

:)

well down here in NC you can get your license(limited) at 16, permit at 14.

you can get a eg for around $1500 with high miles; but you will swap the motor out anyways.

like you ep3hatch, i am aslo swapping the k-motor into my car; a ek(not yet though), but take it slowly; when you try to get everything for your car quickly you will be broke at some point. its better to work your way and figure what you can afford. also do a little more research; you'll regret spending a lot of money on one part to find out it wont work with your setup. btw how do you get a job as a stump grinder at the age of 15?

My dads friend at church saw how hard i work so he decided to hire me and picks me up until i get my licence. Its easy work if you like lifting big stumps and useing chain saws, wood chipper and of course a stump grinder.
