to the op...after all day consideration,
I'm starting to think this is to good to be true... I would take it to an expert to make sure everything is up and up...

K24/K20s frankenstein Ep3 for $6k...I bet the suspension is f'd up from the accident, is it a standard or salvage title...

K-Frankenstein hatches of the EG (92-95) variety are going for $8k and that shell is 10 years older than what you got...

something's wrong..
I thought the same thing...but is possible that the dealer simply did not know what they had

lol that is not a $25k car...because it may be worth more to the tuner community does not make the car expensive. Look at the KBB on that car. Is is a rebuilt title, I dont know, but that could be another tell tale sign of less worth. Not to mention, mods. When you mod a car is loses value, it does not gain it. Even if there are $10k in mods, that does not equate to a $10k increase in value. More then likely it is rebuilt with a swap. Not worth as much as you think. And if the dealer had no idea what they had they could easily have let it go for that price.

Maury, you should check out clubrsx.com or k20a.org. Both have many threads dealing with K20/24 franks. There are also many, many threads on K-Pro with a ton of K-Pro gurus to answer your questions. Club RSX has a great regional forum with a lot of local guys in your area that can answer your questions as well.
Not taking anything away from 8thcivic...but since K-Pro is not available for the K20Z3 as of yet you might find more help elsewhere.

u must have mistaken me for a n00b...

i know K-Pro is Hondata :pat:

u also misunderstood what i said...what i meant was those cars already have set tunes from Hondata that u can put on the ECU, hence y i said "easy to tune" b/c all u have to do is send it to an authorized dealer and have them put the map on there...

ohh and they can also add a VAFC to this car to tune it even more...
I didnt mistake you for one...you sound like one.

Hondata does not have an endless list of reflashes available. Show me where there is such a reflash or as you call it a "set tune" for a k20/24 frank. Here is the reflash page for the K series:
K-Series Reflash
I dont see any there at all for franks of any kind, probably because there are just too many combos out there to R&D for retail.

VAFC is very limited in it's capabilities (you can't adjust cam angles, etc). K-Pro is a fully programmable ECU which can do far more than VAFC. You can not "tune it even more" with anything else.

I am not trying to be a ****, it just sounds like you have just enough information to get yourself into an arguement you will lose.

Sorry for the threadjack post.

First off, in this thread I told the TS to seek help from K-Pro gurus. Never once mentioning myself as one. I have personal experience with Hondata, both reflashes and K-Pro. But that does not make me a professional tuner nor a guru. I never said anything like that.
Secondly, I was referencing K-Pro vs VAFC...not the reflash. There is really no point to run both the reflash and VAFC (unless ofcourse you are trying to save $). But you will get more out of K-Pro then either of them or both of them together (with a good tuner).
Finally, I was not trying to insult you or your "knowlegde". Go back and read your posts. You were saying that reflash alone was available for the K24 frank. I was just trying to make the TS understand that you can not tune flashes. That's it. Sorry if I came across rude, the internets does not make voice inflection and body language easy to read.
