Update. Got it painted 6 months ago, just thought i'd share the final product.
I bought an unmolested, driven by granny 1996 civic dx hatch last week. I'm already bored with my turbo ep3, and decided to go na power with this new project. I dont plan to drag race this car. I wonder what class and what kind of competition I might face if I were to autox the car if I had a k series swap. I don't have much autox experience. Here is my future mod list:

  • k24 bottom / k20 top
  • Bolt-ons (I/H/E)
  • Kpro (of course)
  • Cams
  • Fuel Upgrades (Inj, FP, FR)
  • Full Coilovers
  • Lightweight rims / sticky tires
  • ETC

Let me know what you guys think. Any suggestions or comments? I'll have pics of the car tomm.

udate: Just bought an 04 k20a2 from my neighbor's wrecked rsx type s. project build is progressing, thankfully. here are the pics of the motor.

I see a few honda civics in those pics. It looks like I might have a chance. Then again, probably not, since I'm a newbie. I'm still gonna do the project build though. Thanks for the info guys.

sweet you still want to build it. what i would do is go get the rule book and read the rules for SM and build the car to that spec. Then have fun. You might not be top dog but it will be fun. Which is whats it's all about. Keep us updated and share some pics. Any questons ask.

I agree, but compared to the new bmw 335i that ran about the same times as me, I was pleased with the car. I don't really wanna drag race the car, so nitrous, turbo, sc is out of the question. Its just gonna be my dd and weekend autocross toy.

Civic with K series engines can be ridicilously fast.

http://speedhunters.com/archive/2011/10/05/car-feature-gt-gt-goliath-meet-david.aspx <-- I know the owner of that car and seems like he is doing very well on drag racing and circuit racing. And just last week he installed Rotrex s/c kit to it.

Another guy I know made stupendous 186kw (250hp) at the wheels with bone stock bottom end k24 engine, cams, big throttle body, full exhaust and Hondata ecu tune.
