My K24 Frankenstein is alive!

Well my k24/20 swap if completed finally. It has been in the works for about 2 years but could never quite get enough money to complete the project. I still have a couple odds and ends to do like relocate my radiator overflow and replace all the old dirty hoseclamps and bolts with new shiny ones. Right now i am running a ghetto-fied stock em2 exhaust but my new race header and full greddy evo2 exhaust will be here next week. Here are some pictures...tomorrow is bath day so right now she is absolutely filthy

Re: My K24 Frankenstein is alive!

nice...good work...why did you choose to put the power steering all the way on the other side...most just bolt the bracket the radiator support like the rsxs' have it. either tapping the lower hole on the ps pump so that the hose runs in another direction or zip tieing the hose close to the subframe and retaining original position.

sorry man...had a busy day. I will get them to you.
as i said before the block is a k24a8(accord) and the head is from an rsx type-s. Yes the rsx head gives you more top end power. but one of the best parts is that i now have 6 speed!

Re: My K24 Frankenstein is alive!

definitely looks good. nice setup! post up more pics and stuff when you can. what are your future plans for the car; do you plan on keeping it as is (my guess is no), or are you going to build it n/a or turbo style?
