    Thread: Honda engine into MK2 chassis

    1. 01-12-2011 06:51 PM #36
      I had a 93 Civic Si that I put a H22A1 into, blew a rod out the side of the block, then put a H23A bluetop in. Rediculously fast.... The benefits of doing an h-series would be the better pricing on engines and trans, an easier shift-cable setup, and the base of a large engine. The drawback is that the engine has FRP sleeves, there in making boost nearly a no go. The electronics situation doesn't change, though. Well other than the fact of wiring in another actuator, the secondary butterflies.

      when you remove the butterflies and port that whole area out you pick some good power

      At the loss of low end power. I did quite a few runs with different manifold setups on that car, and the best just seemed to be retaining the stock functionality. I tried ported, with butterflies, without, always open, always closed. But having them open up with vtec gave a great low grunt with a lot of high pull. If I were to get rid of them, I would just go with a custom/aftermarket manifold. Actually talking about makes me want another big block

      So run the DA Teg bearing/hub in the mk2 carrier and you can run honda inner and outer CV joints


      I wonder what the length difference is ? Whats a good place to order custom length honda axles?

    6. 01-15-2011 05:23 PM #41
      what i remember from my swap, is the older the integra axle you use, the shorter they get. so a normal height swap would use the 94-97 axles, slightly lowered used 90-93 axles, and slammed swaps used 87-89 axles. i assume the same would come into play here. but do you think that changes anything about the brake setup? wouldn't it at least change the fact that you now need lug nuts instead of studs?

      lol, it really does look like they fit in rite at home,
      but here we go to help a litte more for those who are intressted in building honda engine dubs

      well first you will need some plates to sit on the chassis rails













      and that is prittey much it for fitting a k20 in your caddy,but its just like that if your fitting it in any other vw,

      I personally think its awesome. Its not my cup of tea but maybe when some of you kids grow up you will realize that there is no point to being so euro-centric.

      Swapping motors between makes has been done for years, what is wrong with creating something better than one manufacturer could have?

      Yeah I'm just teasing Still got you beat by 5 years tho

      Not knocking these swaps at all. I love seeing engines where they shouldn't be Especially if it gets everyone's panties in a bunch. Like, say, a 911 with a VR6

      I have built a few hondas and I would think a k series such as the k24 with itbs would be awesome. Ncm faster then any vw motor with the same displacement and no turbo problems

      I'm not gunna hate on the idea at all but, my 12v mk3 with just chip, and ss kit walked on a k wap first gen civic until he hit vtec in the top of third and pulled by a fender....20mph roller... with that being said they are no doubt a fast and reliable motor it's just w.e. your into... BUT i still do not approve of a cam sliding over at 3k for higher lift.... i cannot grasp how that is good for a motor at all.....buttttt maybe thats y i always see a honda with 100k on it puffing out white smoke cause its rings are shot... there was a guy in the mk3 forum that did a nissan swap i dunno if he ever finished it Do it and bring it to shows.... set a hat out with a pc of paper saying your .02 you make enough to boost it off one show prob gl man def start a build thred id like to see how you go about it

      My Jetta has been sitting in the garage for over a year now due to Digi2 burnout. I am SERIOUSLY considering this swap, since VW parts and knowledge are slightly slim in my area, and the same cannot be said for the H word.
      The fab and fitting seems well within my scope of capabilities, but does anyone have any definitive info regarding the wiring particulars involved? i.e what to keep from the stock harness, what is unnecessary, what electrical components are required from the Honda, instrument cluster details, etc.

      any info or insight is appreciated!

      watch your mouth..VWAG is a huge auto group and make better engines than honda could ever dream of making. you can frind proof when you have enough money to afford one of these various high performance vehicle that VWAG manufactures. Lambo's, RS6's, Bugattis, just to name a few...fiind me a honda motor (ANY HONDA MADE MOTOR) that can put out as much hp on factory equipment as say aaaaaa...... rs6 v8TT..lol..cant find one? better start looking in the F1 section of honda production plants hahahahha..and even there, with a simple tune, exhaust and an intake, the v8TT reigns supreme over honda F1 motors...and lets not forget to again mention, rs6 has all factory equipment lol. VWAG is an engineering marvel that honda can only dream to be like. seriously theres no end to the ways that VW ENGINES, and itself as a company, stand head and shoulders over honda.... **** 100hp/liter, if i want that ill go to BMW! vw is smart and uses these lil tiny turbos to help create power. the end all be all, you do this swap and ill still beat you for less money, and time put into my swap!
