Default blueprint's K24 Powered S2000

First and foremost i'd like to thank Alex, Matt, Aaron and crew over at Ballade Sports for making this happen for me.

Back in March of this year I spoke with Alex and decided on doing a K24a2 swap for my AP1. The Potential, Availability and Cost of the K series really appealed to me and made the decision easy. After mapping out what this swap entails we put everything to paper and went to business.

Overall the entire build exceeded my expectations. I wanted to keep the build as simple as possible and in the end I believe we accomplished that. As far as where we go from here that's still up in the air.

Special Thanks to:

There's a part of me that would take this over your GT4. Congratulations

Don't get me wrong, this is a beautiful build but why not just stroke the f20 with a k24 crank? You would get the same numbers at a fraction of the cost...

Nice. I was thinking of doing the same in the future since I've had K-swapped vehicles in the past. Checking how much the swap kit cost? Also does anyone know if we're able to use our current F series SC setup for the K?

Looks good! But a couple of questions:
- why keep the OEM intake and intake manifold if it´s known to be a limitation to the F engine so with the increased displacement of the k24 would be worse?
- torque shouldn´t be showing more improvement since it´s what makes the K series "famous"?


also the car looks lovely!
keep us posted with the project

Usually my problem every morning... Which car to take to work lol.

In all seriousness the K24 S2000 would give my GT4 a good run.

Finding another F series + machine work + parts + EMS... It was a wash when we added up the costs. In the end we achieved something different. The Cost, Engine availability and overall potential was the driving force for making this happen. Im not knocking the F2XC... It's a phenomenal engine but the numbers speak for themselves.

The swap kit was a little north of $3k.

Not sure about the F series SC setup... I highly doubt it would work though.

I considered it but was curious to see how she would do with the F series IM/TB. I also prefer the cleaner, OEM look. The numbers aren't to shabby either.

It looks like the tuner was very conservative with the cam timing to say the least. Your typical K series will have a nice fat hump in the middle from the cam timing. I tuned a similar engine with 11:1 compression ratio pistons and cams a few years ago.

http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8226/8...5b44536e_c.jpg

**150,000 miles, 6yrs+ l8r...Le Build. (k24/20, hasport, buddy club, etc.) - 8th Generation Honda Civic Forum

Notice the hump in the middle and the peak torque coming in around 6k.

Here's another example:

http://i154.photobucket.com/albums/s.../crowerk24.jpg

Mmmm Power! K24 8400RPM All Motor Dyno !!! - Club RSX Message Board

That's a stock block k24a2 with the same brian crower stage 2 cams. Again, notice the hump you see on your typical K series.

You should be seeing a lot more mid range hp.
