Yes that is what I believe to be accurate. I have seen mention of additional seam sealer used as well with some benefit from that.

There is also a rear subframe reinforcement bar that's not listed here.

Beautiful car and nice find. The JDM conversion makes me sad though.

Does this ruin the authenticity of the integra by putting the k swap in? Does the resale value drop since u took out the original engine ? Looks great man but having such a rare and immaculate R, really bums me to see the original engine coming out.

I am sure the engine change does take away from the value that is typically associated with a rare and OEM Type R on a place like Barrett Jackson or BAT. The new engine swap is surely an upgrade in terms of performance and with this being used at the track it is likely worth it for the owner. I don't think resale value is a concern for the OP, it will surely be more fun to drive than the stock version.

There were some benefits however to doing it. There are way more aero options available for this front end and the fenders are slightly wider on the JDM front. I also love the HID headlights vs. the old Halogen setup. Built in Fog lights are also an added bonus.

Well... True to form it still is an Integra Type R engine lol. Albeit a JDM DC5 K20A ITR.

Yes, value has been affected but that doesn't really matter to me. I Buy cars to enjoy them... Not for the next guy to enjoy. Now if this were a low mileage example with original B18C5 i would be hesitant to doing the swap however none were the case here. This was not the original B18C5. Selling off all the B18C Engine, Transmission, Harness, etc. helped fund more than half the K20A Swap. In the end im hoping for much more power and torque. We'll see how it goes when she goes in for tuning in a few weeks.

Same car. Same Dyno. B18C vs. K20A. Both have similar mods. Both tuned.

Nice k20 power curve, with the 4400 vtec crossover and nice top end power ,it should be a better setup compared to the 1.8L
