i was thinking if i could get a rear ended EK with a fine engine bay etc i could do the swap into that and get it all running and linked up and running right and then do a unbolt and bolt back into mine then, just an idea might make it a bit easier that way i can spend as long as i want on the one in the crash damaged one

its posible to get it in in a weekend, it takes me a day to remove two engines and get one back into the preffered car, but the set up nd the extras take the time then, like alec says you need stuff you don't think about and the hop is always closed!!

i was down the scrappy the other day and noticed that the eg has the same engine mounts as my B18, so this would be a piece o piss compared to installing new mounts like i had to on my ek! that could be done in a long weekend, with a running car after the 4 days!! 1.8 EG ummmmmmmmmmmm 8-|

i wouldn't reccomend the b16 into an ek as i don't think there that quick, esp compared to my 1.8, i removed the B16 for the B18 and am so happy with the result, looks like its meant to be there (thnkfully for insurance companies) 8-|

Hi there mate i'm in coventry too wondering if you have any time for work and how long you will be here for or if you have decided where you will go?... i want to build a honda too i used to have one then moved onto turbo cars (they are great) but still got to admit always miss the n/a sleepers. I know i want an ek or mb6 if its an ek i would want either k20 or the b18 with b20 bottom..... (what do you recommend? considering cost, power and fuel consumption as main factors) if its the MB6 i really like the VTI-s i had one before but it was standard... i would want the itr box and teg sir ecu (is it that one i would want or type r one?) and then b20 bottom end and some body stiffining.... I personally prefer the mb6 for practicality cos i hate having to let passengers climb in and out of the same doors but if the difference is going to be massive, in terms of speed and handling then i guess the ek it is, but of course this would depend on cost difference also so please let me know your opinion. Also last question would the ek (if b20 choice) need the teg box and ecu aswell? thanks i know its alot please give me a quote thanks also any ones input is most welcome..... best wishes Ken

Yes, it's about engine swaps, but not your engine swap. This topic is already two pages long, and you can't open up a different conversation as to the original one. If you just copy and paste your question into a new topic it will get far more attention.

Hope you understand.
