darkstreak - what an unfortunate username. We have a Darkday and a greenstreak. Now we have a darkstreak and only lack a greenday. Little Rocket's passenger seat has a darkstreak after someone rides with him on the Tail of the Dragon.

Some kind of Honda K20 swap was done and the current owner is trying to sell his car. The A/C doesn't work, but he says it can be made to work.

It does turn the wrong way but all you have to do is install the tranny in backwards: meaning 5th gear is now 1st gear and vice versa.

yeah its a shame i made the name before having any knowledge of those guys i tried to search "k20" and "k24" to see if there's any resources for the swap being that the k24 can be bored to 89 x4 = 2.9 +or- but the search came up with not and in a response to the other guy big letters are easier to read squinting gives me a headache just like people who make useless posts​

Hold down control (ctrl) on your keyboard and scroll your mouse wheel, you should be able to increase all the font sizes on the board.

IIRC there is still an MR2 with a k20 in the private sales forum for about 20k. Considering the swap is about 10 I'd say with some negotiation thats a damn good price, certainly saves you the work and downtime. Same color as your avatar in fact ha ha.

If you need to search for info on how to do this then this swap probably isn't for you. If you have the custom fabrication skills necessary and wiring ability you will be able to figure it out, its actually pretty simple (relatively speaking) just very expensive.

psh... b series is impossible without the use of a non b series tranny so those guys are idiots. sure. k series on the other hand, is fantastic. much better than just about everything toyota has to offer.

If you just want some Fun, that just costs Money.. But it's all 'Off The Shelf'.. Then do the Supercharged Stroker 2ZZ.. Comes out to be just short of 2.0L, and It all bolts together.. and Moves.... And you can keep your A/C if you want..

i've said this before, but i think a 2.0 liter 1zz is a much better driving spyder than a 2zz spyder.
