Default K24 Block w/ K20 Head

sorry if this is obvious but

I would imagine it would be pretty similar to the common golden eagle B20/Vtec.

but again i'm not that familiar with K-series and trying to learn, so it possible to achieve Vtec with that setup? and if so is there a full conversion kit out there?

thanks

Both engines are vtec to begin with.


To my knowledge you simply remove the k24 head and replace with k20.




But PLEASE do your homework.

well i wasn't sure, due to the fact the only K24 with even Vtec engagement stats on Wiki is the K24A3, from what i hear wiki is pretty onpoint with their information, but most K24's came/come in Honda Suv's, Crossovers, Sedans (CR-V, Elements, Accords, Etc.) so i wasn't sure how many came Vtec, besides the K24Z7 in the new Si. Since i'm new to the Honda scene. Thanks for input appreciate it.

another question, how practical would a K swapped Hatch be? I've heard that they have been done but never seen one in person, but some things i would like to know are: is it struggle to get everything to fit, are things like shaving, relocating, and custom pieces necessary? thanks

there's a million threads on k series swaps. hybrid racing has an entire writeup on it also.

they don't even make a non-vtec k series. some are just for efficiency, some are for performance.

k swaps arent cost effective unless you can get one for a steal, the money it costs just to put 1 in civic is ridiculous, just put it this way unless you got 8 to 10 grand to drop your better off going with a d,b,h series, also the modifications you have to do is a pain my recommendation is stick to what you know
