depends on a
1. k20a the japan motor 5k
2. k20a2 the rsx-s motor 3k
3. k20a3 civic si motor or stock rsx 1.5k

than add 1k for mounts and wiring harness
add another 1k for hondata for it to run corectly
add another 1k for install and tune
accessories to finish up the install 500

these are all estimates. and depends what yu get with the motor.

- wiring harness
- exhaust manifold
- keep civic cat and modify midpipe

- ECU
- Disabler
- Transmission and starter
- intermediate shaft
- Axles from either 02 Civic Si or 94 up Integra GSR or RSX with RSX knuckles and hubs
- RSX or 02 Civic Si subframe
- Hasport ESK1 bolt in mount kit
- Hasport ESKWH conversion wiring harness
- RSX shifter assembly and cables
- 02 Civic Si radiator and fans (although the RSX will fit with some trimming around the radiator cap opening in the grill)
- 02 Civic Si upper and lower radiator hoses (RSX are longer and may kink)
- RSX throttle cable
- RSX fuel line, brake booster line and purge line
- RSX AC line from compressor to condensor
- RSX clutch lines from the master cylinder to the slave cylinder
- Custom AC line from compressor to evaporator (Hasport should have one available by April)

your best bet would be to eat a delicious chili dog.




.....oh yeah, and use the search button. youll notice in the top bar there is a search feature. youd be amazed at what it can do seeing as to how there are about 356257247 topics regarding k swaps.

Or im sure you could get a nice k20a3 swap in for about $$4000-$5000 including labor... (price may vary alot due to shop pircing.. IL has nice labor costs )
Everyone tells me that there is a **** load of maintance if you build a D17 is that true

you want to go fast and you know it. haha... You know, it really sounds like you should check out nitrous. Sounds like the perfect option for you- some *** pulls up.. activate it, boom- take off. Takes pretty well to an automatic if thats what you have. Anyways- there is a bunch of threads in the fourm for nitrous as well.


enjoy

I always say the best upgrade for a civic is an rsx type s.
