Paradigm Shift

One thing we love more than a K20 in an EK is a K20 in an EK done correctly. We install a Karcepts Shifter Kit on our K-swapped EK project car.

We've been following along as our friend Ryan Hoegner's EK hatchback transforms from a stock DX to a K-powered street terror. We started the build by swapping a RealTime Race-built K20A in place of the stock D16Y7. Then, we moved on to some stopping power.

This month, we're going to finish what we started in the first installment by cleaning things up a bit. Karcepts is a new company that builds parts to help K swappers do things more professionally. They also offer a radiator relocation kit, which makes cutting and welding radiator tabs a thing of the past.

But Karcepts' first, and most popular, product is a shifter mounting kit for K-swapped EG, EK and DC models. The shifter kit sits within the exhaust tunnel to make a lower mounting point for the DC5's cable shifting mechanism. This enables the DC5 shifter to sit within a stock center console. Harvey Janisse from Holeshot Racing is back again to install the Karcepts shifter kit and make the EK project's interior a little easier on the eyes.

The decision to incorporate forced induction on our project car wasn't a difficult one. Rather than struggle to wring 5 or 10 horsepower from the native F20C with bolt-ons, we're reaching for turbo power
