if u have a whole lot of money... damn... its worth it... go for it... someday somehow... the K's will be the popular swap... the B still rules because of its swapping cost....

there are mounts, axles, driveshaft, linkage etc specially designed to fit K-series into EG or EKs... but they can be an extra few Gs to spent on top of the motor.... so look at around more than 6gs for sure... and the labour???

personally... i would stay with the B or perhaps do an H.... however... if i had the money... why not do a K and turbo it? someone did in this forum... the results was pretty damn good

Yeah I heard there is a huge list of things you have to do to make it work but it would be sweet if you can afford it. I can't even afford a B16 in my eg6 ha ha.

you can get the swaps for 3500 these days...

but then you need mounts (usually around 500) etc

and then the big problem is the labour to install
there is some custom fabrication involved and **** gets expensive

the results are better than any swap available but it hasnt been perfected yet. The complete swaps are becoming cheaper and cheaper (~~3000-4000ish) BUT labour to get it installed...yikes. Needs a lot of custom fabrication for the shift linkages too.

I cant see spending that much money unless you REALLY love your civic.

Well we are part of the Civic Club so we love our Civics ha ha, but I don't think it is valid unless you have too much money.

only downside is the cost. anyone who sayz you can do it for under $5K installed is straight silly. unless you are getting a stolen engine, or maybe getting a K20A3

All you need is money, really. If you are short of it, then the least you can do is be patient and keep saving.

Or get a loan and wish your car never gets stolen, wrecked, and never get laid off so you have a steady income for monthly payment.

like I said, stolen engine or sumtin. look at 1nicesi's post.... he does his research and knows as well as I do what these things cost. my buddy in the US was gonna do his delsol and once he realized how much money it would take he said fack it and got a used NSX instead.

haha well dont take me wrong, i love my civic..but the thought of spending that much money on engine work makes me a bit sick to my stomach. I'd take the money to put the K20 in and invest it in a real RSX lol


but no doubt, when the swap is done it looks great in the engine compartment..at least the ones ive seen, fits nicely, enough room..no spaghetti wires..way out of my price range

its impoosible to do it for 3gs unless there is something wrong with it... look at the "hybrid racing" website... all those custom fabricated parts can total beyond 2g already... included a decent K motor... another 3-4 g...... that's 6g for sure already... 1niceSi tells it all.... atleats 6000 US to start with.... and who's there to install it? another g or so for sure.... anything too cheap, its probably stolen by theory......

Yea I did my research! I wanted to do a K series swap in my project 5th gen hatch.

The K24 that I looked into is legit, and cost $2400CDN...and that doesn't include so necessary components. These motors are not stolen...the seller provided the VINs, and the motors next existed (this does not mean stolen), because they were never put in the cars they were intended for. Virgin K24s...lol. The motors were being transported via train when the train crashed.

So 3gs for a complete K series swap into an EG...sure....lol.
