Maybe he has a sedan like me. If there was an SI sedan with an auto I would have waited.imsonastie said:ok no one has answered this question becuase it so obsured(sp), ask yourself what is the point when you can spend less money and just get an si?
Granted, I wouldn't know what would fit until I actually looked at it but if you were going to put anything in there I wouldn't put an Si K20 in it. K24a2 (TSX) with a K20a S or K20a R head (RSX-S, RSX-R respectively) ...not sure what you'd do for the ECU but it could probably be recalibrated. I'm sure Hondata wouldn't mind doing it (screw Hondata...they flat out told us they would never do an ECU for the Legend ). Hmm...that would be sweet in a sedan...MaxxxRacer said:So is it possible to swap the regular coupes R18 motor for the K20 in the Si?? i know it seems a little silly, but the K20 has an established aftermarket parts list while the R18 has zilch and is harder to work on.
Sweet. BTW, Brian, your guys' Civic Si had a K24 in it, right? Did you guys have any changes to make on the mounts? Can you comment on how the mounts differ from the K20A/A2, the K20Z3 and any of the K24s?brian g said:My guess is it will be a direct swap. We will do one in the next couple of months once I get some other projects out of the way.
MaxxxRacer said:the reason being is that the car was a gift... so I cant exactly go get myself a Si, and tbh i really dont want to mess around with a stick in Los Angeles traffic...
That is the correct answer.C17chief said:Even being a gift, it's not worth it on a brand new car. Just sell it and get something else.
That said, anything is possible with the right amount of money. Everything should be pretty much off the shelf EXCEPT for the ECU. Automatics on most newer cars are controlled and pretty tightly integrated with the computer. Since SI's dont come with automatic, this is gunna be your biggest roadblock probably.
If everything did come together, that would end up being one way expensive civic with a real market value less then if you left it stock. Just sell it, and between the money you get for the car and what you would of spent to do the swap, just get something nicer and better suited to you not to mention not having to kill the value of.
