Default Honda_K20a's Build Thread

https://www.d-series.org/forums/showt...ght=honda_k20a

I guess I'll start off by saying I am a complete noob, hoping to learn tons along the way. I thought I start a build thread on this forum, and hopefully I get tons of questions answer and help needed (which I already do from this forum) So basically, the project I am starting is a mild D16Z6 rebuild then Turbo. Forged Pistons/rods. OEM Head and other necessities. Later on the down the road would be tranny rebuild and head rebuild. So list of specs: D16Z6 CP Pistons 75.5mm FJ R Spec H-Beams Forged Rods Stock Sleeves OEM Bearings ARP Head studs Stock valvetrain or in order words, Stock Head.

Pictures:
When my co-worker delivered the motors

This isn't the turbo I'm going to use

This is basically my 'parts' motor, swapping things from to the other motor

So I started taking it apart 2-3 weeks ago and since my computer was down, I couldn't do much (I.E upload photos, forums and facebook)



Waiting for my compressor so I had to use my electric impact gun for now.


VTEC!


There it is, waiting for parts at the time.


I picked up an "EH", 92 Civic CX about middle of October. It blows oil like crazy. But inside, it has B&M SS/Si clusters


Stripped all the rear

I'm planning on using my CX tranny first with my D16Z6, and most likely rebuilding the Si tranny below with some better gearing ratios.

Finally, the internal components arrived from FJT!.

No love without the lube and I guess I can use KY if this runs out.





CP Pistons 75.5mm / CP Wrist Pins/ CP Piston Rings







So right now, I'm basically waiting to just pay off my credit card bills first and off the bottom end goes to the machine shop. It's 8:30pm right now, I live in Vancouver BC. So friday night, means partying so I'll update you all wiht my 'future' plans for next year when I get back.

There's no point now really, I have the pistons and rods. lol Perhaps, the next time I rebuild the other D16 block, I'll try Vitara and Darton Sleeves, etc etc. (FORESHADOW!!)

Oh. I have another question. Do you think if I get the Go-Autoworks Race Kit, but part out the turbo and get a GT30R, do you think it'll be worth it?

Why dont you just get him to upgrade it to that but I would go with a BW s258 instead of the 30R

I think you mixed something.

CP is used commonly with fully built engine with high expectation, and also nice to sleeved to get maximum out of setup.

Vitara setup, most of them are budget build, and lower goals, no need to sleeved with this kind of built.

This guys is right, sell the cp pistons, and buy a set of vitara, forgot the sleeving and put 300$ elsewhere. It's like driving a stage 5 clutch kit and slicks on a stock engine, something overkill which give nothing more.

I don't know your entire setup, but going past 300-325whp on a d16 (which vitara setup handle well) is not something easy.

That's true, that's why I'm on here for the help from you all.

What else do I need? Walbro Fuel Pump, Bigger Injectors and other fuel necessities. Boost Controller, and a crazily good Tune right? lol Yeah I'm missing quite a bit of other things.

I still can't debate if I want to go to GO-Autoworks Tuner Kit or Race Kit.



For the Tuner Kit, I'm going upgrade to 3" downpipe and 2nd o2 bung but can't decide which turbo. I heard 50 trim has a better spool than 57, but 57 is more top end? Somebody correct me if I"m wrong which I think I totally am. lol



I want to go with the 'Race Kit' for the log manifold and the more turbo options but due to money problems for now, I'll still thinking about it. lol
