Also wondering why the z7 is not close to a Frankenstein swap. Sounds to me that that is pretty much exactly what it is, except for reving to 8000 rpm's and not having vtec on the exhaust side. Well, it sounds like maybe I should stick with the Frankenstein swap, but I didn't want to build a motor as I can purchase a complete swap for $2500 including the tranny. I wouldn't have to buy rods/pistons, gasket set, head studs, mounts or any little miscellaneous items that I might be missing. Sounds like I would have to get FlashPro either way so tuning isn't the issue. Either way, I appreciate all the feedback.
Check it out in the for sale section, the good thing about my setup is it can bolt up to all your stock si parts and run fine, granted you tune it. Or you can make it a horsepower monster if you like

With the k24a2 still readily available... this swap is stupid and you shouldn't do it.

Very blunt but extremely true.

I mean with the k24a2 you'll get access to camshafts, tons of custom headers, etc.

It just doesn't seem worthwhile to me to do a k24z7 swap.

Not to mention that 1 port exhaust manifold is totally retarded.

Following up on this thread. I been researching this k24z4(7) option as a block swap to throw on the z3 head. This is if I can not find a 06-08 TSX K24A2 longblock (seems rare to find as everyone uses it) I want to keep my compression at 10.5:1 or 11:1. I found a thread on 9th Gen saying the z4(7) block may work with our z3 head with the proper head gasket as the coolant ports match up. Just that the block coolant ports are angled where as the z3 head ports are straight?

Personally I would Not.. Seems you would just be making a 9th gen out of an 8th gen... IDK it just seems kinda pointless since you already have a 9th... A frankensteined swap would make more sense IMO.

Think about it. If you swapped the k24z7 into your 8th, than your 8th and 9th would basically be the same car but with slightly different looks..

I have an 8th. I am just looking into block options without the price of a built block since some k24 blocks come 10.5:1 or 11:1 compression already and they are good for high power applications stock-like. Just throw on an a2 oil pump and a z3 head or 50* vtc cam and good to go!
