Hi all!
Purchased my first EK9 earlier today and i cant wait to get it running, its is just a shell but i have found a massive build thread on here of it! im wanting to go kswap, i have a K20a sourced from a DC5 and i know id need gearbox, loom, shifter, shifter cables, driveshafts, ecu, conversion loom but what else do i need? looking to just get it running suitably for now, will upgrade to fancy bits at a later date when money is available. Anyone got a list if possible?
cheers!

Thats what the TE37 are for ;)
;-) they are here ready

Just so everyone knows Rhys is now the proud owner of Wazers old Ek9. Couldn't have gone to a better person. He knows his stuff and is very passionate having come from the Renault clio racing world.

It can be a bit quite on here @rhys_EK9 but it's a great resource for information with a great bunch of people that always try to help best as they can.

Unlike facebook where you get a reply just for sake of it from underage kids with bagged civics claiming there dad's mates uncles used to build ek9s back in heyday lol

Fuel setup. Pretty simply really. Rail. FPR. hose kit. Either top of line stuff as one or custom hoses

3 inch exhaust .
K swap mounts
K swap rad and hoses
As your running no ps you need the delete bracket on engine with idler pulley .plus you won't use ac so have the brackets to relocate alternator to run properly. Straight forward. .
Re shafts ep3 inners with b series outers for now wouldn't recommend for racing though. They will likely snap lol
Pretty much it stick to your dc5 intake setup for now thrn upgrade later if you feel you need to.
