D17A2 with D17A1 motor

Since i couldnt wait another 8 weeks for my new rods to arrive, i decided to buy a new motor to temporarily put into my 02 Lx. But the only motor near me was a D17A2. It came with everything i needed (complete motor, intake mani, TB, alternator, PS pump, mounts, tranny, axels, harness, ECU).

So i go down and pick up the motor. I get it home at about 5:30. By 8:30 it was in the car ready to run. The only thing that held me back was a small problem with the slave cylinder. But i solved that today.

But i havent recieved the D17A2 ecu yet, so i decided to try the A1 ecu. It works fine. No vtec, but the car drives. Should be swapping in the vtec ecu tomorrow or this weekend.

So after 6 months of down time, the beast is alive again.

yea. but every time i asked the status on my built motor, they said "it will be done next week". And i heard that for 6 months. from 4 different companies. And they were all mostly my friends.

So lesson learned: Dont depend on friends for timely work.

liljoe is an unknown quantity at this point
i have a question. you mention axels+mounts in your post above. Those aren't needed to swap an A2 into a LX are they?? I thought they were the same parts.

I just bought a 2003 D17a2 to swap into my 01 LX, but it didn't come with any axles, ecu, mounts, harness, etc.

they actually werent even assembling it. They were making custom pistons, custom rods, and a set of sleeves.

No, you dont need axels or mounts. Mine just came with them. i had a bad front mount anyway. Too much boost, too many slicks.
