As you may or may not know, I have a spare K20 that has been sitting in pieces since it dropped a valve almost 2 years ago. I have been in cahoots with GO Power recently to build that motor and turn the FG2 into a tranny wrecking monster. I'll be updating this thread as well as my blog ( My VTEC Broke ) as the build progresses.

Details of the build:
  • ERL Sleeved block, Darton MID sleeves
  • 88mm bore (2.1L)
  • 10.4:1 custom Wiseco pistons
  • Custom GO Power rods
  • Custom GO Power turbo cams
  • GO Power turbo manifold
  • GO Power downpipe
  • GO Power 3.5" intake
  • Comp Turbo CT43-6465 turbocharger (.96 a/r)
  • 1280cc GO Power injectors
  • GO Power fuel return
  • SRT Billet Dual Pump hanger
  • Dual Deatschwerks DW300 pumps (big thanks to Deatschwerks for providing great pumps!)
  • GO Power Intercooler
  • Pocket ported head
  • Innovative motor mounts
  • PPG 1-4 helical gearset
  • Gearspeed syncros
  • .87 ratio 5th gear
  • .738 ratio 6th gear
  • 4.105 Final Drive
  • GO Power Coilovers
  • GO Power 3" Exhaust
  • AEM Wideband & Gauge
  • AEM Boost Gauge
  • XLR8 Dual Gauge Pod holder
  • Competition Clutch Twin Disc clutch
  • Turbosmart Wastegate & BOV

Obviously this list is a summary of the major components (but Vit, what plugs are you using?? ROFL).

The journey to GO Power begins, k20 in the back and in the front:

Keep us posted! Tranny wrecking machine it will be!
Hey Vit, congrats on the amazing build and numbers! Could I get a link to the video please .. specifically one detailing the tranny work! Thanks and great job!
Hey Vit .. could I get a link to this epic daytime video I keep hearing about please.

Also how would the extenal mic work for the HD Hero? Does GoPro sell and external? I just got mine a while back and I agree the outside mounting audio is worthless with all the wind noise, even using the waterproof case which is supposed to help with it.

How is the Traction Control testing coming along? .. I hope Hondata's AUG 1st release is still on track!
Hey Vit,
Sorry to hear about the trans issues, just when you think you have something built to last the damn synchro dies on you.

Were you present for the install of them .. I've read on k20a a few people have had issue with them and they noted that drenching them in oil to ensure they are fully lubricated before install my have helped in there situation.

How many miles were on your trans build?
Really sucks when you pay for a product that you expect to be superior and it fail prematurely.
I was spinning 2nd and 3rd too... I shifted into 4th when I got tired of waiting for the tires to catch up LOL
I take it you weren't running the traction control since you were spinning.

Congrats on the run man .. 134 is booking it! :claps:
Gotcha .. makes sense.
