Sooooo for some reason my K20 dropped a valve into the cylinder...locked up the motor, coolant filled up the crankcase, aluminum pieces all up in my head, cylinder, intake manifold, and header...:dontknow:

What came next was a purchase of a K24a2 :giggity:

Questions and comments more than welcome...I have a cheap camera so don't hate on the quality of the pics...

The build...



Bought this cherry picker for $100 at Harbor Freight, helluva deal. Engine halfway out...




Side view almost out. I figured out at this point to remove the AC compressor and that freed up enough space to yank it the rest of the way.




She's out, time to drink beer.




Heartless...I also removed the rest of the AC system later on. I don't need it where I live and I never used it anyway. Also cleared out the rest of the power steering pieces after I took this pic. I figure I'll see how it is w/o PS and if I hate it I'll do EPS




One blown K20...to be dismantled and inspected after I am bored when the swap is done.




Started tearing apart the wire harness for the fuse box relocate to glove box process




The other side of the fuse box relocate process...yeah I didn't think it was gonna be this big of a PITA but I got time so why not..I think I'll be glad I did it in the end.




All done rewiring the fuse box looming, wrapped it all in fresh elec tape twice and new plastic loom stuff, looks half decent eh?




Something big came in the mail today...




Hmmmhmmm that's what I ordered, just making sure




All stripped down and cleaned off, going to replace the oil pan gasket but choosing to leave on the K24 steel pan instead of using my aluminum K20 pan, I figure a dent is better than a crack...no leaky




Out for some fresh air and a good degrease spray down in the engine bay while it's so empty in there, not going to respray it tho. I don't care much for show...




All roughed up and masked off for a coat of that VHT wrinkle red paint you see there. All it takes is a lot of coffee, degreaser and sandpaper




Baked for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees and the wrinkles appeared so I took it out




Turned out just as I had hoped! I might sand off the Honda letters later on so they are shiny and yes I am cheap and did not buy the VC that only says Honda on it, I really don't care that much.




My old clutch and my new Competition Clutch Stage 2 clutch with 11.5 lbs. lightened flywheel...I figured the 8 lbs. would be too light for daily driving, this should be a perfect compromise
- FYI It looks like the guy that had the car before me put a stage 1 Exedy clutch disc in here (compared it to pics of one online) and I am replacing it because the part that houses the springs had a 1 cm long crack in it :eek:




Flywheel and clutch installed...




Tranny installed!!! This is a big PITA by yourself. Tough to line up the splines and hold the tranny just right so it slides in, if you have friends...use them!




I got a belt to fit in case you are wondering with a K24 and no PS and no AC a 525K6 fits great.

I'll keep the thread updated, please ask if you have questions if I can help I will!

Attached is the kal I am using until I get tuned. It has a few changes to suit my setup. :wavey:

This is how she sits as of now. I got a belt to fit in case you are wondering with a K24 and no PS and no AC a 525K6 fits great ( I know stock is a 7 rib belt but I think it will be fine)

I am also working on a parts list which I will post when it is finished :thumbsup:

This weekend I hope to drop her in, I'll keep the thread updated, please ask if you have questions if I can help I will! :wavey:
