ACT Stage 2 clutch & Streetlite flywheel on! Also got the gearbox with MFactory LSD & carbon synchros on!

Getting there now! Shame we'll never see that lovely bright yellow on the clutch again lol.

Engine bay looks great after a good clean! Something I really could do with doing next time the engine/box are out.

Just had a read through, looks awesome! Should pull really well with your spec list!
I've just bought myself a 70mm RBC with a k-tuned adapter.

What's your opinion on the s90 throttle body? They look good and not too expensive either compared to others!
I've been considering the skunk2 one but they are pretty expensive, and heard people having trouble with the tps position (for EP's). Only other option was the Hybrid one, but no one has any in the in the UK atm. Lol

Following this, look forward to seeing it finished!

Thank you very much :D RBC 70 is the way to go for sure.

As for the S90, I rate them very highly for the money! Excellent quality part, just as good as Skunk2 if not better because of the price difference! Obviously I haven't put it under the strain of driving yet but seems solid enough! Recommend one for sure.

I replaced my TPS with an OEM Honda one for this. You have to drill the old one off anyway if you wanted to use it because it's riveted on. So because I had a new throttle body I just got a new TPS anyway. Saves any trouble.

It will be finished very shortly!

Well, what a weekend!!!!

Got the car back yesterday & it has literally blown my mind. WHAT A BEAST!! It is SO fast. Its a whole world away from B16B. As much as I loved it, this is just another level. What a machine.

As you can tell I'm chuffed to bits with it! Absolutely stunning and the power is just unreal. It pulls and pulls and pulls, the noise sounds like Godzilla just escaped from the engine. Basically feels like a completely different car. Also sounds totally different! Better actually.

A few teething problems to sort like tracking, speedo is in KPH..
Got my Ultra Racing strut bar on as well.

So that's it really, K-Swap complete!

Before & after. What a transformation in 3 days!





All the cars outside Honda HQ. 4 K-swapped Civic's and a DC5 :D


Time to enjoy it.

Haha cheers mate! If you want to do it then definitely recommend it. But it's hella expensive! Well worth it though.

Thanks mate :D glad it's finally done! Hard to believe really haha. It is a top job!

Bet your so happy
May be a little bit jealous :))
Yeah I'm chuffed with it! Get yours done :)

Very nice. Thinking of doing the same
Thanks! Like I said above, I would recommend it but it's a mega expensive swap. Needs a lot of careful thinking and planning. There's so many little things that are easy to miss when swapping into an EK chassis.

Lovely car, the engine swap looks great. Glad you're enjoying it.

Apart from the pace, how does the car feel? The chassis able to manage the extra power and its delivery?
