    I've been searching the web for a few days trying to find out whether or not a K23A1 engine would fit in an 02 civic but i can't find anything. would anyone here have some info about it?

    I Dont know how true any of what im about to say is. I found this information just skimming articles on google and im only posting this cause no one else has posted anything on this thread.

    From what ive read the k23 may have a larger block than the normal k seriies

    I'm not sure about how big the k23 is but if you find mounts for it i'm pretty sure it's possible.

    i don't think so, even the k20/k24 is a little to big. some ppl cut a tiny bit.
