That's the craziness that's out there still in America. I know I'm not the only one who has the disease. I had planned to film the car crusher as it devoured my '96 LX but I was overcome with intense sadness - the very thought of such a horrible end to my beloved sedan was too much to bear.
This was my thought.I think even if the swap was free and in theory worked with k swap kits available on the market, it would still be more expensive than a budget b18/b20 swap .
Which is why I said find another 92-00 D series vtec, rebuild and swap that in. You already have all the parts that you can interchange.Dilapidated cars and wacky ideas, the stress level is huge because taking the bus and riding a bike ain't gonna cut it man.
How do you figure?The L15B1 engine is in the 2017 Honda fit.
Gotta be easier than the K20C2.
No, I have not read or heard anything regarding that.Part of my last comment mentioned Honda changing the way they 'cast' their engine blocks - do you know anything about that?
Those are the people that are probably rebuilding it themselves (or having their "Honda guy" do it) and NOT taking it to a competent engine rebuilder who knows what they are doing and will do it the right way.Rebuilding a D seems like a crap shoot, I keep reading horror stories of engines that weren't done right all over the internet because no one cares and they are in it for the money and don't even measure stuff.
Are you planning on asking your dealership for "measurements and proprietary data needed to swap a K20C2 engine into a 1996 civic sedan" ?I don't know what I'm dealing with here.
Big shock there, they don't care.Well there you have it. Honda doesn't recommend the modification - but all is not lost. They recommend I pay a visit to the dealer!
