Why don't more people go J-series? What am I missing?

I never said I planned on tracking it. 90% of the cars on this forum don't see track time.

The k20 is a common swap in the s2k any they have also been rotated 90 degrees. A baffle relocation should correct that for track use, but it should be irrelevant on the street.

Thanks for being the first person with an actual criticism though.

The K swapped cars are also known to have oiling issues when tracked, even with a pickup baffle and timing case baffle.

I do agree this is all fine on a street car, I just don't think from that perspective since my car is 90% track or driving to the track and 10% normal street usage.

Thanks for the input. I would certainly consider a dry sump if I tracked, but that's a long ways off.

If you're a dry sump on a J your big talk about cost savings is up in smoke.

True, but I was just speculating. I have no intentions of track time.

Then what is the purpose of Accord-ing your car?

Huh? Cause only people that track can mod? I would bet that almost all the 400+whp turbo cars on this forum see zero track time due to heating issues. Should none of them modded their cars either?

You guys are wrong in so many ways. The J series is amazing. It has gone 7s on a stock block. Just be prepared to do pistons a lot, but besides that it is crazy reliable compared to F series cars for drag work

I don't think you're missing anything. This is something I plan on doing. I think the reason so many members seem reluctant to support the swap, is mainly because they have perfectly healthy F-series engines in their car and don't see why one would want to mess with that. The only thing that drawback with this swap would be emissions compliance, the obd2 port won't be functional, since you'll need to go with a standalone for the swap, according to InlinePro. And you'll need to get a lower final drive ratio.
