Some idiot in that thread said nissan motors were better than hondas.

False in terms of durability and off the shelf parts.


True in terms of application and price.

S2k motors aren't cheap.

K20 and f20/f22/f23c or whatevers pull a premium. More so than sr20's before race wars......


You can do it, it's just going to be alot of paper, headache and maybe money.

If you can get the proper bellhousing adapter and can fabricate an intake mani to face fowards (cake....or even run itb's) then there is no reason you can't run an H series, or B series motor of your choosing as well.

This is pretty ******* cool. Props if you do it with easy to get cheap parts and MAKE it work.

Yeah, you can do **** the easy way and run an s2k motor but that's doing **** the easy way........
