^You must be thinking about the JDM K20A Type-R swap. You can find a full K20A2 swap for around $3000, maybe even less depending on the mileage. Personally, I'd rather have a K24A2

JDM K20A swaps go for anywhere between $4'500 - $5'500. The one's that are listed for $6'000 usually come with the entire JDM ITR front end (suspension and all). I went for the K20A powertrain for three reasons where I thought the extra $1'500 was worth it:

1 - Limited Slip Differential
2 - Better transmission gearing
3 - higher revving and slightly more HP

Could you swap a a2 head on an a3 block? If so would it be worth it?

Old post... but will be completing this swap in the near future, my only questions are, what exhaust needs to be put on the k20a2 when swapping into an 02 ep3, what motor mounts, and do i need to run different harnesses and ecus even if im going to run kpro as my tuner? kinda nervous about being without a car for a long time because of missing out on something so trying to get everything in order before i commit to the swap.

thanks

Sad to say that this car got blown up by another buyer
