I am using a k20a2 head mated to a k24 bottom end, using Hasport mount kit into a EG chassis. Which JRSC kit (Civic Si or RSX type S)would provide the best fitment? I noticed that the Hasport 4 door DC2 chassis car that competed in the Super street/Sport compact car challenge was running the Civic Si based JRSC kit...any reason for this? Brian g please chime in here if there was a reason.

I had one already.

Use the RSX model.

I'm working with Jackson to come up with a new kit for EG/EK/DC cars with K20 motor. We're making some changes to the kit so it will owrk better. It will come with 650 injectors and Hondata base maps most likely.

Would they change the mounting spacing on the charger so there might not be as much of a clearance issue like there is in the RSX compartment, regarding nose to the P/S unit/or hoses?

Any word on the release date, Brian?

Here's the deal, we will get a parts list together for the JRSC on a K20/24 into EG/EK/DC application. As of right now, using power steering causes a problem. There is a belt clearance problem is you use the JRSC tensioner and powersteering.

We will have very soon a supercharger kit for cars not using non-PS but I'm not sure how soon we will have a kit for use with PS.

Brian, I didn't want to post a new thread on this, since we were kind of on the (K20 being boosted) subject.

Considering that the 'Type R' has a higher compression ratio (11.5:1) over the standard 'Type-S', would the difference be handled in the re-flashing of the ECU? (say the K-Pro)

Would a spacer be a good safeguard to lower compression to possibly run more boost?

I think that there will be clearance issues with P/S still in the car. The changes we made to the kit won't allow P/S. We haven't had a chance to install one and keep the P/S. I probably won't get to that until I build the EG we have slated some time in March.

You can use the Type R engine with proper tuning. Doug at Hondata has tuned a few Type R motors without major problems.

Next time I talk to him I'll ask his recommendation.

Thanks for your responces.

It seems the evolution is still in the stumbling growth phase with everything as a whole. Discovery is a wonderful thing.

The mounts, whether they can allow p/s.

Jackson's ongoing R&D of the proper S/C for the EG/EK/DC platform's.

Whether, or moreover, when the AC will be configured in the fray (tweaking).

There is a ton of money out here, not to mention future money once all of the bugs are worked out by all.

With the minds and excitement that are together in this 'K' swap project, I see absolutely no need for pissing matches.

In the end everyone will profit all in the name of technology and horsepower.

The love of the Civic/Integra platforms are as strong as they were when they first emerged and by the looks of things,,, for many years to come.

from what i have read i take it that you can have the jrsc on the k20 in an eg but just not with p/s is this correct? and if so how much of a clearance problem is there? and where you using the stock pulley or a smaller one. i got to admit i loved the instant power that i had on my jrsc'd rsx-s that i resently sold due to finances. but i am getting another eg hatch to go along with the one that i have soon and i am very intreasted in doing this swap.

You can run the rsx spec'd blower on the k-swap. Although, it isn't type specific to the EG/EK.
I won't call it speculation. I won't even call it a rumor, so don't take what I am about to say as anything final.
There has been posts supporting the development or, should I say more concisely, mere thoughts at this point by the right developer(s) concerning the sketching, or mere thoughts, on "paper" the future plans that would indicate a possibility of a EG/EK K-swap blower set up rather than running the already developed RSX platformed kit.

In a recent telephone conversation my reliable source indicated, "Keep in mind, nothing is ever certain, but the future looks very bright". :up:
and if so how much of a clearance problem is there?
Notching of the hood is required at this point; at the p/s current location. (if i'm right :hammer: )
However, there are others that are looking into a new bracket for the p/s that will pose little or no clearance problems.

My brother has a JRSC on his RSX-S and I remember the upper hose to the p/s being just a bit of a concern. It never gave way to the already tight clearances of the blowers belt and pulley coming off of the snout, but it was tight. You probably already knew that though from your experience.

i got to say that i have had cars with and without p/s and its not that big of a problem and goes pretty much unoticed unless at a dead stop then it got a little hard to turn. i am mainly into drag/street racing and not that much into auto cross or scca so not having power steering is no prob,i am trying to build a street/tract car. a/c is not something that i was going to have anyways cause i live in arkansas and it does't get all that hot and if it does just roll down the windows and your fine. i am just wondering how much you will have to notch the hood to make this fit and will in show on the outside cause my main plan is to build a total jdm sleeper. i already have a set of 16x7 5 lug work rsz-r's that i am going to throw on there. and i found the way to hide the shifter so all i need to know is about he blower pulley cause i will say right now that i am planning on running the 3.2" pulley to acheive 9psi and a custom two stage nitrous kit. i love sc and want to just see how fast i can get a car up to in the quarter with this set up. also has anyone completed a sc k20a2 swap in an eg and if so you got any pics of the engine bay the hood so i can see what i am going to have to expect. if you guys could do that i would be greatful. thanks matt

I was all into boost for the past 4 years and still want an sti so bad but besides the fact, i had a vortech si before and a lot of people went jackson. Jackson racing is a HUGE headache such as: rebuilding the charger after a certain amount of time due to lack of lubrication for the bearings, heat is a huge issue these things get super hot with nothing to really cool it down except for a spray of water? (not sure how that little water cooler works) and hot air going into your motor is not good either. Don't get me wrong u can go a long time without anything going wrong but give it some time u're gonna wanna sell it after a year or so. I say just do the two stage nitrous and shoot early to get that supercharger feel. Just my .02 cents instead of hearing yet another blown motor because of jackson's charger.
