  1. The DIY Garage RSX
    Hey All, I am doing a k24a2 full swap in my 03 rsx type s. my goal here is to do the swap on a budget using parts that I already have (Which is almost everything). I also have a black 02 rsx base that I wrecked the other week. So, I will be using parts off of that to help save on cost. The type...
  2. Turbo RSX
    I bought an E85 build and I'm in the middle of doing one myself. I bought a JBR built K24 block and I'm tearing into a type S motor for the head. Many of the old build posts either no longer exist or are missing pictures, and over time many have to do things aren't true, or at best are...

  4. Bolt-On Basics: RSX Type-S
    Hello all, this is something that I have asked my friends about, but they seem to not give me a clear answer. Disclaimer: I have the 05 Base auto RSX. In the future, I want to do the k20/k24 frank build, so what type of bolt ons should I be looking for? Do I look for bolt ons that fit the Type...

    So to start with, I've poured over threads on here for hours gathering info on frank building. However, I've still got a few fuzzy points that have the potential to blow a motor if I don't get the details right :rest What I've got: K24A4 Accord long block (fully disassembled, I took it out of...

  9. Engine Building & Design
    So from all the DIY's I've seen they never mention this. To change from a k24 to a frank all I need to do is swap the head? Don't I need to worry about headgaskets compression and things like that or is it practically plug and play and I'm overthinking it? Also what allows you to rev an engine...
  10. Turbo RSX
    so after a gloomy 4 months of not having my baby i finally have her back and love my frank build. she is pushing 298whp on e85. i have put only about 4k miles on everything. I am starting to save back money to go boost, but i dont know a whole lot about boost and whats safe and whats not. I...
  11. All Motor RSX
    So is the head on the k20 a different size than the k24 head? Does it change the p2v clearance? Because I keep hearing about machining the tsx gear to 45* instead of 50 to avoid p2v contact in the k24 but I haven't heard of it done on any Frank builds and they all run the 50*vtc gear and just...

  13. Turbo RSX
    Long story short, I attempted to turbo my stock (high mileage) Z1 and blew my motor on the dyno. Foolish, i know. Rod #2 bent and shot out the block. Made 350 at 7psi before pushing for 400 and watching my dreams come to an end. So, now I'm stuck on whether building a k24a2 block or a k20z1...
  14. Engine Building & Design
    Hi, I need opinions. I threw a rod through my k20a2 block and oil pan on my 2002 RSX Type S with a Greddy turbo kit. I tore down the k20a2 and sent out my heads to a machine shop and did a valve adjustment. I got a k24a2 long block out of a 2008 TSX with 110,000 miles. My options are: - Drop...
  15. Engine Building & Design
    Hi guys, I'm in the final stages of assembly on my frank build. I'm using Prayoonto stage 3 cams, supertech valve train. Shooting for close to 300hp and 8K+ revs. My question has to do with OEM tensioners. I've got a used one from the K20Z1 and a new one from an accord. Are they the same...
  16. Engine Building & Design
    I apologize if this is not the right section for this. Figured this section would be as close as it gets. Background: I am in the middle of swapping a K24a2 block into my 02 rsx type-s. I have all of the parts needed to do this and the block is at the machine shop now getting bored and hot...
  17. K-Series Swaps
    I'm considering a full k24a2 swap into the Rsx. A buddy is trying to convince me the frank build k24 block+k20a2 head is better. I understand I'll have more top. I'd like to hear experiences from both frank and full k24 swaps. Btw it will be turbo'd in the near future.
  18. All Motor RSX
    Mods dont be angry please. I am looking for opinions on my choices of readily available parts. I am planning on doing a modest Frank set up in my 06 Type S in the very near future to hold me over until i have enough cash to buy a motor i really want. To start these are what i can get my hands...

    Ok guys this is going to be a bit of a work in progress as I am building the motor at this current time. As my motor is being put together. (By ME) More and more information and pictures will be posted. I am not responsible for your car if you follow my diagram setup and things don't work for...
  20. All Motor RSX
    Hi Guys, You may have seen my prior posts - got my built K24/k20 putting down 269whp/217wtrq and it looks like my CC Stage 1.5 clutch is starting to go. That said - does anyone have recommendations for a clutch that will hold ~300whp/~250wtrq well and still be daily drivable?
