Default Autism Awareness Ksight build Delacruz Motorsports

Hello to you all. Writing today to show you guys my 2000 insight go through a k sight swap.







Some work
Here you will see the engine in the car.
I used innovative k24 manual shift insight motor mounts. Very easy engine install but this is the easy part.

Finding a way to adapt axles is the hard part.
on the left you will see the size of the insight axle and on the right is the base model rsx axles.


So I had my local machine shop turn down the base model rsx spindles to fit inside of the insight hub

Seemed to be the fix on paper but I found out quickly it was not. Caliper was not aligned and was way to heavy of a modification to get this to work.

Someone on k20a.org gave me this idea and it turned out pretty good

I took the steel ball joint bushing out of the insight knuckle and welded it to the base model knuckle. Problem solved.

while I was at it





Insight wheels fit just perfect.


alignment perfect

mock up motor installed


I tried to install an rbc manifold and it was going to be difficut to keep the radiator support bracket.

So I purchased an immitation skunk 2 intake manifold from ebay not to shabby.



after a little cutting
