Who ever broke in just trashed the place. The guy who agreed to split rent with me decided to move to Arizona. This is going great and not at all a huge disaster.

I'm making Honda K series swap for RWD cars and want to see why I got this K24A2 for $250?





It's gunked to poo poo and ate something on the inside. Sorry no pics of the shop because it's just poo poo stacked everywhere. I'm still working 58hrs a week (minimum) at work so I don't really do much but sit in the office and think about the mistakes I've made in life.

Better to K a FWD Celica(pick a gen, any gen) than a Corolla, the lost sleeper factor is more than made up for with the massively better rear suspension.

Uh yeah that will work too

Anything but the stock motor, and no point putting a 4AGE in it unless you were gonna build a GTS clone or something.

No doubt. Pretty much anything slightly modern will put out more power than the 4AC, and the 4AGE is not terribly cost-effective (especially when it's not not plug-n-play because it's not an EFI GT-S) nor a powerhouse. Plus, finding a RWD 4AGE is slightly difficult, and if you're going to have to mod an engine to get it in there anyway, why bother with stock-ish?

Yeah I've had a few 4AGEs in my long list of cars, none of them RWD, but they were definitely nothing to write home about although better than a carbed single cam. A modern 4cyl swap is a great idea for older RWD cars, hell I've been pretty impressed with the 2.4 2AZFE in my xB, that would make a great donor too I think, but the Honda K seems like the best supported out there right now. Lotta Miata people going with K swaps lately.
