100%.Would you go K20 instead of JRSC B18C?
Seeing as you have seen Kev's old B16B JRSC go, would you still say the K20 would be the better option?
But its just the fact of having that Â£7000 to buy all the bits at the same time as keeping your car on the road to get to and from work, thats my situation anyways.
This is pretty much how I see it too, however,A standard swap with budget parts on std ECU could be done for Â£3-4k maybe less, then minus sold B series stuff. But I dont see the point in doing half a job.
Personaly if I was doing it, it would have to be the full job. Higher comp, cam'd K20 or go for the K24/20 and make it really worth it Ultimate N/A.
This I do not agree with, to reference some recent examples Stevie9er, Danf from civiclife, DrMikeys old cars and most other Kswap cars have either been sold in parts or for a much lower price than Im sure the owner wanted to sell it for.At the end of the day a Kswap in any older gen honda will add a good chunk onto its market value. Where as you can make a B series with almost any spec and It still won't fetch as much. But cost you just as much as a K swap in the process.
Driving a K car ( dc5,ep3,etc ) aint nothing compare to driving a K-swap car...I am a big B series fan, can't get enough of the rawness and VTEC is soo much more aggressive than the K series, but the K has more torque and responds much better to bolt ons, I have driven EP3's and I felt a mild disappointment, its too quiet and refined for my liking, it doesn't scream like my B16 does, and can I justify paying for the K20 conversion costs...NEVER!!
But K's are coming down in price slowly so it be more common as the years come, but my love is with B series no matter what anyone says.
