K Swap All the Things
About a year ago, a teaser shot of a black Porsche 911 (930) surfaced on the interweb with a interesting motor attached to an engine stand beside the black beauty. As Honda enthusiasts, our keen eyes identified the motor immediately as a K-Series. Wait, what?! Yeah, I along with many car enthusiasts had the same reaction, Honda head or not. After that one teaser photo, no info on the fascinating build has come up until the last couple of weeks, when a couple of videos of the completed swap started showing up on various social media outlets and forums.
So here we are a year later with the final product and wow is it a sight to see. It’s not just the fact that this is a 911 with a Honda K swap sitting out back, but the overall attention to detail throughout the car flows well with the oddball power plant of choice. Speaking of the power plant sitting in the rear of the 930, the owner Scotty G chose to go with a K20A2 (RSX Type S). If that wasn’t enough, the motor was given more power via stage 3 cams. Just when you thought a K20A2 swap in a 911 was crazy enough, you thought wrong. One look inside the engine bay and you’ll see a rather large Garrett GTX3076 turbocharger sitting nicely next to the motor. Since the K20 sits a bit taller than the Porsche options, it had to be positioned a bit further forward to make it fit perfectly. The rear glass was also modified with air ducts to let the motor breathe.
Though the K swap is the party piece of this build, it’s certainly not the only interesting bit. As mentioned before, the entire car has been finely tuned with the greatest of detail. Starting out front, one of the first things you’ll notice are the awesome looking multi-LED headlamps. Next up, the stock front suspension was ditched for Elephant Racing GT3 units. A 2008 Cayman front brake package was also installed to help with stop this beastly 930.
Open the door to take a peek inside and it’s all business. We’re talking a custom dash, racing steering wheel, Bride bucket seats, harnesses and a roll bar to top it all off. It’s a racer’s happy place – everything you need and nothing you don’t.
Scotty G mentioned that he’ll be putting his black beauty through its paces in the near future, so hopefully we’ll get more info on this majestic build. We can’t wait to see how she performs!
