Oh K! - Step by Step K Swap Acura Integra

Just four years ago, swapping a K-series motor into a Civic or Integra chassis was just a twinkle in the collective eye of the Honda community. EG and DC chassis swaps came first, shortly followed by the EK and eventually the EF and CRX. Last year, at SEMA Hasport even had a fifth-gen. accord with a K24 swap in it. Since the K has already been swapped into everything else, the DA Integra is the final frontier, and who better to tackle the project than Hasport?

The car was purchased as a theft recovery with a stolen engine. Besides the stolen drive-train, everything that connected the engine to the car other than mounts was cut instead of disconnected. In the end, it was a clean DA inside and out for $600. You can't beat that.

The engine swap is a 2.4 liter K24A1 from a 2003 CRV purchased from a salvage yard for $750. It is rated at 156hp @ 5900rpm and 160 lb-ft of torque @ 3600rpm. The transmission is 5spd from a 2003 Civic Si purchased from a salvage yard for $650. It has also been outfitted with a Civic Si intake manifold and throttle body to accommodate future modifications.

This project is the basis for Hasport's DAK1 K-series swap mount kit, DAKWH wire harness adapter, and DAKAX axles, which will all be on the market by the time you read this.
