Will ep3 05 si engine work on Base RSX IM, tranny, and ECU?
awesome :thumbsup: Im starting to buy the smaller things now piece by piece like bearings, seals, and guides and working my way up into the more expensive parts when im sure of what my build will be. I just checked and the rsx base and ep3 use the same water pump passage bracket that the p.s mounts on so im sure it will work. I prefer hydraulic p.s over electric any day for a daily driver. I got a really sweet deal on this motor which is the only reason on working on the ep3.Wow, so much misinformation...
I know this was over 2 years ago and you have a frank build now, but the EP3's K20A3 will drop in. He would have a few disconnected connectors if he went with the EP3/RSX-S take manifold but he'd need the throttle body for that same setup. The plastic runners are garbage and unneeded.
All accessory items can be moved between engines easily as well. Idler pulley can be removed from EP3 and PS pump could be put on.
people here will need some more info. No crank, no start...Cranks but no start. Have you checked spark, fuel and the like?I know this was years ago but I recently put a ep3 2003 si engine in my base rsx I put that engine in because I got it really cheap but it won't start if you can tell me how you got yours running would be great I just hope I get a reply lol TIA
