I started with SunSpeed. Great kit, no complaints. They started with converting Rover-based cars in US, so they should be a good fit. By far, they have the best engineered mounts for street use.
I think, the main engineering piece of the kit is engine mounts, shifter linkage and wiring (to the dash). Everyhting else are just little details. The little details will cost you $$
Drive shafts are from driveshaftshop.com. Shipping to Australia would be a problem... Here they are about $1k. They may even know the length that you need. Otherwise, they make shafts to order.
If you can read an electrical diagram, get a K-pro and a swap harness, then you can do electrical. Hondata, now makes a dash (CAN bus) adapter!
If you can get a Honda RSX manual and figure out the cooling system, you can do the plumbing yourself. You can even run pretty stainless AN hoses...
Throttle linkage, intake, exhaust... and you are done! It is a fair amount of work...
This thread is full of details....
K-tuned is another good vendor for Honda swap parts, especially hard to find little pieces. Like aftermarket TPS, Water neck with AN or any other hoses, electric pump, etc.... I think, now they have their own swap harness, too.
Hmm, im trying to toss up which kit I should get for a K24 swap into an early S2. Wiring and fuel system i prefer to do myself.
So far my options are:
-Stark - Seems good quality, James is superquick to respond to emails. Prices are fair (5500AUD delivered to aus, plus import tax)
-Hondaelise - Useless with emails, like completely useless. I had to call to get any response, but they seemed helpful. Prices are very cheap for some reason.
-Sunspeed - There is a local reseller here in Sydney, kit quality by far appears to be best. Bonus of local support and no need to pay any import tax etc. Downside is it seems very expensive in comparison. Driveshafts are $1300aud alone, mounts 1200. Full kit excluding wiring/cooling gear/fuel gear is $6800aud.
Any tips from anyone else? Can the heater hoses/piping be made up easy enough? Hope this isnt a thread highjack!
