This is awesome man! How long did it take you and what more do you have to complete?

thats cool, but i hope you addressed the problematic timing chain tensioner issue before ploppin her in seems to be the largest bane of the K series in that displacement.

right now, my ecu isnt commanding the VTC to work. i ordered another ecu and will have to get the kpro board swapped in. but it drives nice. has a good power band and sounds awesome up top.

nah i just took the stock engine and put it in. mine has around 100k so it will probably need a chain soon anyway.

If I ever manage to blow up my H22 this is the next engine going in, looks to proper in there. I'll bet when you get all of the electrical/ECU issues sorted out it'll be that much more of a blast to drive. Did you have to get a custom header or are there off the shelf options out there for K24 swapped CB7's?

yea i got my new (used) ecu last night in the mail. i tried 2 different headers before i found this one to work. im running the ktuned budget swap header. clearance in the back near the subframe and intermediate shaft is almost none existent. this works good though.

Be careful as its oil pressure operated, keep the levels up and run whats on the oil cap, Otherwise itll be new head time from pistons kissing valves
I think there was a TSB for the K24's

I recently learned that the K series in a cb7 hangs low / oil pan hangs low.

Okay, that's good to know. Not sure if I would ever be able to do a K-Swap but if I didn't I was wondering what would work. I've seen aftermarket axles but they are $350 + for a pair.

yea i wasnt gonna pay that for axles.

ive been driving the car around for a while now. got my kpro back from upgrading to v4. been trying to tune it some on the street.

also side note: getting the air out of the cooling system is the hardest thing ive had to do with doing the whole swap.

Hey man, I just came across this thread again & I totally forgot about your K Build.

How is the setup going? It looks really good.
