They do not have the same cams or ecu. I forget if you need a new harness or not. I wanna say you do. You would need kpro to run it and you'd need to double check about other senors.... which goes along with the harness.


All that and the K20a engines are like a grand more than a stock for stock replacement.


Not to be a dick but if googling this was too much effort, I doubt the rest of the process is going to pan out all that well.



Honestly, there's no reason to spring for a K20a. The scene points arent even worth it. Maybe if you were going to full on JDM type-R clone and you were a stickler for detail...



Swap the cams if you want that tiny tiny hp boost. But even then... I wouldnt bother.


***Just reread your post. The JDM engine you found that's cheaper is likely the shitty one. Type-R engines are like 4k. The shitty EP3(not sure) one with the black plastic intake manifold is not desirable.

Not being a dick at all, I realize that sounded nube, the k20a I found has the RBC intake (aluminum) and its a lot cheeper most likely front the euro r accord, and I read some threads where guys swapped them with no issues I just wanted to start my own to get some feedback, the vtec solenoids may have to be changed too I think, I don't care about full JDM I just want to drive me car again cause I need it, 2600 for a k20a2 with 130,000km over a k20a with 45-55 miles for 650

and mechanically I am good, my b series was fantastic and I am pumping out short blocks like crazy here at Hyundai and still hitting 120 hours a pay

Jeeze, you should PM me the link to that engine.

I have absolutely no desire(or funding) to buy it but thats crazy if it's the right one for that price.

Its a type S ecu, I think Canada had different options for rsx than amerian ones, and if I put in a type r ECU I think I need to bypass immpbilizer and ground the gren and yellow wire at the passenger kick panel for the fuel pump
