UPDATE: car is totalled but feel free to comment thank you :)

Its been a while now that ive wanted to do a k-swap on a Ek, but im very picky on the year and body work of the car. So i finally came across one that i couldnt let go and now shes mine...

right now she sits as she did when i bought her a week ago but as paychecks roll and time goes on this Ek will change and ill make sure to post every stage right here...ENJOY :usa:

The pics from the day i first went and looked at the car.



EXTERIOR came with, fresh paint (still trying to find what exact color it is),15 inch sportmax wheels with falken ziex ze-912's,yellow fogs,carbon fiber painted the color of the car duckbill and some kind of front lip which is prolly gona come off for a future mugen lip..


INTERIOR came with, s2000 seats and a rsx steering wheel which really won me over :dancing:

SUSPENSION: skunk2 coilovers with more to come

the motor is nothing but a sohc d16y7 at the moment but that will be coming out as soon as possible :thumbsup:

stay tuned for later pics

bro your EK has inspired me to get a del sol, EG or EK within a month or so.. :woot:
I plan to do the same thing you're going to do a k20 swap :woowoo:
Thanx...it takes alot of work,time,and money but when you take it for the first test drive it makes it worth more than any b series,h series,or d series....your automatically getting bone stock 160whp with the crappiest k series and that's the element k24a4 just think if you got ur hands on a type s motor :thumbsup:
