Allow me to rephrase that answer:Question: Can I still do the swap if I have a SMT?
Answer: Yes, you can. Some additional wiring changes need to be made in order to make it work but we can help you with those changes as well you will need to switch the car over to a manual. The use of the SMT transmission will not work. The parts to make this switch are readily available.
I forgot to mention the clutch safety y/blk wire grounding. My bad. But still no inf on 2003 SMT specific wiring.The changes specific to removing the SMT:
1. Ground the starter relay.
2. Wire in the clutch safety switch.
3. Splice in an appropriate connector for the manual TB. I assume that this one is moot in the case of an alien engine swap.
That is it. All the rest of the SMT specific wiring is just abandoned. Tie up the connectors so they don't get into anything.
K20a2 changes a few things including OBD2there is in fact no green/red wire present on the obd2 DLC pin DLC14.
I had a blinking ABS light after installing an Ultragauge. I found the solution on the Tacoma forum.
The pin to disconnect is number 14.
Pin layout as below:
The pin 12 and 14 instructions are just for the immobilizernow trying to wire the data link connector (2003 SMT chassis). tried per instructions from memeber here to move dlc 14 to dlc 12 (first step). Instructions said to cut at 14 and connect at 12 but since there was no terminal or wire in position 12 i re-pinned 14 to 12. The wire is green/red but I don't have a way of knowing where it goes to in the chassis. The only reference I can find is 2000 manual car which shows no green/red wire on the dlc. Anybody?
I just want to say thanks for your help. Seems that one of the problems with the inf. you sent me was the fuzziness of page three paired with the fact that my ADD (lol) kept me from reading some of it until yesterday at which time my ADD friend pointed out that "that's a 3 not a 1 for the logic ground". So besides being distracted with a wire I didn't have to be concerned about I also had a problem narrowing down what exactly I needed to be concerned about as far as wiring.The pin 12 and 14 instructions are just for the immobilizer
Parasitic drain on the battery:Solved in my case by completely removing the COPN relay since I wired in another relay for the fuel pump. (opposite the large relay pass. side firewall relay box):02.47-tranquillity:OP:My issues were/are: Fuel pump not coming on. Solved by installing Bosch relay: double hot from battery grounded to e1 of Honda ECM(fuel pump ground unchanged: relay supplies 12v when gounded by ECM E1). Parasitic drain on the battery: allegedly caused by efi relay being active while key is off.
I think the harness needed to be switched and some sensors. I do not recall the exact ones but the harness and sensors have to mimic the RSX. The ECU will work with Hondata, so just figure in the cost of the harness and potential sensors.Anyone know if there is a downside to using a k20 (EP3 Type R) instead of k20a2? From what I'm seeing, the price is looking fairly close once I factor in local pickup for the k20 vs shipping for k20a2.
I'm new to this whole K-swap idea, but am really considering it, however, is around 4k high for a type-r k20 with LSD?The k24 block is cheap but to make it a true performance engine with power it still needs the expensive k20 head. The TSX or type S trans are also more expensive if you want the LSD etc.
All I really know is innovative has the linkage made now, like Ikrana said the linkage comes from the other side so needs to be flipped and reversed.
You don't need a type r. The k24A2(TSX) or k20a2(type s) and 02-05 rsx type s trans w/without lsd work just fine. I have a k20a2 bottom with 06-11 head and intake if anyone is looking. 65kI'm new to this whole K-swap idea, but am really considering it, however, is around 4k high for a type-r k20 with LSD?

What are your power goals? I would just have the k24 head ported; 10.5:1 compression and turbo is a beautiful thing.Anyone here done the K24 bottom end with the K20A2 cylinder head and oil pump?
Weighing options on getting the K20A2 head or sending the K24's out for head work from K Mod.
I have been told it drops the compression ratio in the process which given my turbo goal it wouldn't hurt.
