After doing a K24 swap recently for a customer, I realized that there really wasn't a good parts list out there to make the swap go as smooth as possible. Since there are a lot of variations from Honda, I tried to come up with the list that makes it as easy as possible so that you can get the right parts the first time.

If I am missing something or you have found that a part number that actually doesn't work well, please feel free to let me know.

I changed the title to fit what I was talking about better.

IMO its best to run the k20 oil pan, fits with all oil pumps, then you dont need that flywheel inspection cover, so less out of pocket spending.

that is true unless you want to run an S2000 oil pump. Also, some people buy them used and don't want to crank open the pan. It is not a well known part so I added it to the list.
ahh the s2k pump, your right. Although that does start to get outside the bounds of a plug and play set-up, the k24 pan is truly most universal. :thumbsup:

I like the K24 pan because it is lighter. :)
i opted for the k20 pan for durability, if i go off at the track i dont want a couple good sized rocks denting the k24 pan, obviously the k20 could crack but i have more faith in cast aluminum rather than stamped steel:laughing:

Great thread debating on whether i should do a k20a or k20 head k24 block to put in my EG Chris you should post the parts list on the thread and make it a sticky.

if you are staying all motor or supercharging then go with the k24 if you are going turbo then stick with the K20.

I made the page to make sure that it doesn't go anywhere. I am not sure if there is a lot of demand for the list, I know that I couldn't find one out there.

^ i'd also like to know. are superchargers compatible with other k-series heads? (crv, tsx, etc...)

i have a base so i could get a crv block, then type-s head but a crv long block is cheaper than the type-s head alone. and i'm not looking to squeeze every ounce of power out necessarily, as i know the type-s head flows much better

If I got a modified s2k -> k20 oil pump what parts would I need and any modifications? And would there be any benefits, cause I thought the crank is what limits the k24/k20 builds, not the k20 oil pump. I'm probably gonna buy my k20/k24 build in 2 weeks and since I don't have a k20 block I could go with an s2k pump.

The Type-S pump is fine. There is enough other stuff to worry about during a K24 swap that complicating the oiling system. If this motor would see 9,000 rpm's, then "yes". No real need for it on a standard-stroke K24 block though.

if going supercharger on a k24/k20 build, is it as easy as doing the regular swap, then just install the supercharger?

Yes, it is that simple. It will bolt onto a K20 head without an issue, the only thing you would have to change is the belt because of the height differences in the block.

What you need is the pump, a K24 oil chain and guides and a K24 pan.
