K24 Tuned Today

I finally got the motor tuned today by Joe at Locash Racing in Phoenix,AZ. He pulled out 212hp and 178tq with an ambient temp of 110 degrees in his shop.

I built and swapped the whole thing in my garage
k24a8 block...k24a2 pistons and rods...k20a2 head...6spd K20a2 tranny
Heres the nearly finished product...I still have to relocate the radiator overflow reservoir, getting AC lines made tomorrow, and I want to do a quasi wire tuck

Highest documented that I have for 5-6 PSI with respect to power is:

An auto kit of ours running 5 PSI with a PnP head 208whp & 211ft/lbs

If you want utterly stock head, 5-6 PSI:

195whp, 184ft/lbs @ 5 PSI

Re: K24 Tuned Today

With stock head, stage III cam, old turbo, on 7 psi, I was over 220 whp....

But that's kickass for an auto, very impressive. Too bad there isn't much more it can handle before the tranny goes....

if you use the k24a1 pistons....no

thx guys

I have probably broken the $6k mark...should have been lower but I got screwed on about $1500 worth of parts and had to buy kpro brand new

the guy who did the tune said on a day that wasn't so god damn hot the motor should have hit 220hp

I am not exactly sure what you mean...I have full tein coilovers upgraded rear sway and struts. I had to remove the front sway due to the header hitting it really hard. please elaborate on what you mean.

Re: K24 Tuned Today

^ the dollar figure is in the previos post of mine. One thing i have that most of you boosted guys dont have is my motor has less than 100 miles on it. I built that thing from the crank up with new parts. So I am essentially making that much power on a stock honda motor which means my reliability is way higher. I am fully aware that some of you boosted guys actually do it correctly so you still have the reliability(andyman). I have no intentions on adding any more performance to the motor. I am done with performance mods. My goal was more power(than the d17) with reliability. My fast car is going to be my 1966 porsche 912.

Re: K24 Tuned Today

Oh i want to add more. But I have strong will power and I know the 912 is a better platform for power. I can get my 912 to run circles around the em2 for less than 2 grand.

Re: K24 Tuned Today

when i asked if u took the wieght difference into account when u swapped, I meant cuz if the engine is significantly heavier, wouldn't u have a lot more understeer with any aftermarket suspension designed for a car with a d17?

Also another thing i really wanted to know... do the hasport motor mounts make your car vibrate a lot? or does it not make that much of a difference? Would u say that it would be good to swap for a daily driver?

Re: K24 Tuned Today

there is a significant addition in the vibration. It isnt bad though. The car is my DD. I hear of some people replacing the rear mount on the subframe with the rsx mount to remove some of the vibration. I am unable to tell you any difference due to the extra weight, especially since I removed the front sway bar for my header
