Default How To : K24Z7 swap in EG civic. Complete how to!

HI guys. I did a k24z7 swap in a EG civic about 3 years ago. Ive gotten alot of questions about it over the years so I just decided to do a complete how to of the entire swap process, parts, wiring, ECU, etc. I have filmed the process and am uploading the videos to my youtube channel. The name of my channel is BallsOutPerformance . Just enter that into the youtube search bar and my page will pull up. In addition to the K24Z7 swap I have lots of other projects and tech videos that I will be putting out shortly. So subscribe to the channel and please share my videos if there is anyone else that you know that is interested in the Z7 swap. If you have any questions feel free to ask. I dont get on here much, but I will quickly respond if you message me on my youtube channel. I hope that my videos will help a lot of you guys.

Normally, members that create a "Build Thread" do so in ONE sub-forum... you have posted in at least three that I have seen. I suggest you contact a Mod and have them delete all but one so that all updates are focused in one location.

Yea Im not really doing a build thread guys. If you arent familiar with the k24z7 theres literally no information online about it or any successful attempts at a swap. I know because I searched all the forums a few years ago when I was interested in doing the swap, trying to find information, which there is literally zero. Ive had a lot of people from instagram and youtube ask me for information regarding the swap and how to do it. So I made a video series to document everything about it. So Im trying to reach every avenue to get the information out there for the ones that need it. If there is something wrong with that, then by all means delete the posts. Thanks

I watched part 2. Really good info! Nifty tricks with the intermediate shaft and crank sensor plug.

Thanks for the response. The next video(s) will cover the biggest issue of concern which is the wiring and ECU needed to run this setup.

Stock ECU with matching immobilizer ring and key should do the trick, right?

Yea that should work. I dont have specifics on that though. The only part I had that was Z7 is the engine, so I didnt go the route of using the Z7 harness and ECU.

Getting the ECU pin outs would probably be the only hardship in that area.

Thereís some place that you can subscribe to for free and have access to all of that, but I canít remember the name of it...

Also, Iím pretty sure you can go to Honda and request copies of pages from the service manuals for a price.

Justanswer is a pretty good site for that, too. For instance, I got all the wiring schematics, ECU pinouts, and connector pinouts for a 2003 Accord EX V6 that I swapped into my civic and could not find that info anywhere. Cost me $26, but it was worth it.

I didnít either, but it was worth a shot. I talked to a Honda technician on Justanswer, and he gave me way more info than I asked for.

but you used a rsx s tranny.. then yes that would be easy.. innovative mojnts doesnt have mounts for the z7 tranny going to eg. i called them.. make a video using a 12-15 civic si 6speed tranny that will make a difference.. use the z7 harness and ecu then show us how you did it.. btw i watched and watched your video i thought my mind puzzle about the z7 swap will be enlightened.. you used different components..
