Are you just going to run the stock motor? What are you doing about your ECU and wire harness? I have a J35A8 that's in my Prelude so I'm wondering what your plans are as far as those issues go.

^yeah always a great input of advice on k20a.

You got some balls to tackle such a complex project, filled with so many obstacles and obscurities. Must take a lot of patience, research, money and fabrication to tackle such a project. Hats off to you man!

Well done for persevering with this crazy ass project.

We used to be full of admiration when people turbo'd their k24 motors but you have taken this to an entire new level.

Should top it off with "J's" racing gear lol
When I saw the thread title I thought someone did a J's racing build...someone who has deep pockets like coltsicehockey and his J's gear. But it seems like you're just as nuts!

I also added some wires for the fuel pump controller and the cooling fans, which operate separately on the J-series engines. I decided to update the engine bay/cabin harness to the 06'. This required removing the dash, which wasn't fun at all.

Yeah that's the route I'm going. Don at RPM Systems built my harness and I'm running the stock 07 TL-S ECU. THe stock motor has great power especially in such a small car compared to the TL but it's still not enough and I want more. Problem is as you already know there isn't an engine management system available yet to be able to tune this motor with DBW. My ECU is currently at API (Tim Beadle) and they are trying to break the code on it like they did with the K-Series ECU's so you can tune it but so far no dice.

Can you please post a link to your thread on K20A? Thanks and good luck. I'll be watching with a keen eye.
