A RSX-S is less expensive than a K20a2 swap into a 7th Gen, which is the least expensive K i would consider.

A crower stage 1 cam ($350) in a D17a2 head with i/h/e will match the whp of a k20a3.

I've long thought this.

Honda does sell small 'crate' engines, however, so I'm certain the market simply does not exist for crate engines analogous to GM and Ford's offerings. The reason being precisely that... "old school hotrodders are often older and have way deeper pockets" (to borrow your words).

Then just service it minimally and sell it unmolested.. Any modern turbo engine will beat any bolt on in terms of efficiency, power and reliability.

after looking at a few k20a3s going for like 1000~1300 with the ecu and tranny i thought it might be worth the cost since their lower mileage too but all the little things start to add up Really quickly. not to mention kpro itself will be around 1000
The cost of the motor is the least of your worries if you aren't doing the swap yourself, it cost me 7500 to build my k swap and its basic, k20a2 with header, cai, and kpro. Sure the motor,tranny, rsx s parts cost me 4000 in total after shipping(from states) and the other add parts cost 3500, however; I was doing the swap myself, the cost of labour for a kswap would be pretty insane I would think.

Don't forget the fact that little things add up (ie, you want a tucked wiring harness or you want brake lines to be reloacted inside the dash or you dont want a stock harness, you want rywire for the super clean look, it all costs time and money).

So are the shops mentioned in the first page still good? Realized this thread is a bit old.

Already made contact with Speed Syndicate. Just looking to install an intercooler, rockers and headers on my Regal GS.

Just wasn't sure if they can tune just anything. Also, do they have a dyno?

I've had no experience with speed syndicate, but my experience with evolution auto was great. Kevin did good job tuning my k20a2 and I'm sure would have done a great job installing upgrades had I needed help.

We do not have a dyno at The Speed Syndicate.
