sorry if this is a little off-topic ... but I was checking out the Cars for sale in that forum and I noticed that there are quite a few k20 swapped hatches that are for sale ... why is this?

the people here are selling their hatches for not too much more than the the prices of all their mods... why even bother swapping?

i dunn maybe its becase since this swap is getting more and more popular. the people that actaully have done the swap can make some money by selling it to the people who want that te swap but dont know how to do it. thats why i see the k20 hatches going for like 10k plus which is expensive as fucK! i dunno thats just my opinion.

A lot of people want a hatch with a k20a already in it. It saves people the time and hassle... and sellers want to make money so they can do it again and make more money. lol.

i agree no way to pull it of if the swap is not hot, i can tell you one reason, its not a good every day driver car with no AC, i like my car but dam its makes too much vibration noise, if i had i choice i'd go back and get type r swap, just me though i'm not into all that raceing

vibration comes from the mounts. if you dont really like racing, then its pointless to get a Type-R engine because Type-R="Race" trim.
