Default What you guys think?

I've got a 2004 Honda Civic LX two door (coupe). Is it possible to put in the Acura RSX Type-S Engine (K20A2) into it? What would I need to do this? It's iV-TEC. Also, what you think? Good call? I wanted something around 200 horses, a DOHC, V-TEC is nice. Your opinion? Thanks. It's 85 horses more than what I got now.

Very possible, but very pricey. We had a fellow HCF member here with a 7G/turbo K-series swap running high 10s, I believe, but he was just too good for us. Basically, you need a good chunk of change (probably 5 or 6 large).

[sm=smiley20.gif] good call. Hasport has most of the parts you need, and check out 7thgencivic.com for a lot more info.

Ah. My mistake. Like I said, I believe. But even when I was writing it, I was thinking, "10.x is pretty quick. I'm not too sure about that..."
