aha

If i were doing a K swap i'd buy a car with a good K20 already in it. Then swap the engine out. Can make a bit of money out of selling the stuff you don't need. Will also mean you can make sure the engine is a good one :nice:

BTW K swaps are mega expensive

you will be paying twice as much for a k20a over a k20a2 and they are very hard to find for a sensible price.

K20 A is from a JDM EP3 or JDM DC5
K20 A2 is from a UK spec EP3

How much are you budgeting for the swap and what car is it going into it?

If your going to do it get the K20 A! Its more expensive but its worth it! But iv seen a lot of ukdm ep3s for sale for cheap and as above you could buy the car take out the engine and then sell everything you dont need!

Your better off with the K20a2 as its cheaper, unless you want the box and engine from one car and want the closer ratios of the JDM and LSD, which you could buy later and save money anyway.

The difference in compression is negated when you start to add upgrades, hence why tuned EP3 (K20a2) run similar power to the JDM (K20a).

The usual EBay, RMotion and other breakers. Or register on CTRO/TRO/ITR-DC5 etc, always the odd engine floating about due to write offs.
