Hi everyone, I’m new to x19s and new to forums, actually never posted anything on the web…
Anyway I acquired an 1982 x19 last weekend with the intentions of swapping a k24a2 in it.
I pulled the engine out of a 2007 TSX 3 years ago and it just sat in the shop and collected dust. So I decided to put it to work!
I am very familiar with older Honda engines as I use to race them and also swapping them in different cars, but never messed with a K series engine.
So here I am I need some advise and words of wisdom. If anyone has any info I would greatly appreciated it.

Welcome to Xweb @Rayamirkhanian !

The BOX (Best of Xweb) @jimmyx mentioned is a list of topics that have proved helpful over the years. He linked you to the K20 section, but there is a lot more. If you can't find an answer searching the BOX or the forum content, be sure to ask as someone has probably encountered whatever issue you are looking into. :)

Good luck with your project!

Can I post there?
Welcome!!

Post here. That is informational.

My thread has much info (I used the K24 TSX drivetrain, the earlier K20 transaxle is different form factor), along with Roger & a couple others. Mine is linked in my signature.

Edit your sig to include year of your X1/9, and location.

Oh great that’s what I basically have with exception of transmission. I was going to go with a 2010 civic si LSD trans, but I’m not sure if the mid west kit will work.
another thing is wiring, I reached out to few of my old friends from my Honda days should have a wiring by next month 🤞. The rest I could do in house. I got a fab/marine shop here in Oregon coast.

The MWB kit only fits the early RSX transaxle. If the 2010 casing is similar to the AST5, then you will have to make your own transaxle mounts as I did to align with the MWB kit, if you use it. The MWB kit can be supplied with the correct offset torque arm for the K24.

Good to know thanks

Welcome. There are several excellent threads in BOX as others have pointed out. Hussien (lookforjoe) and Rodger have done a superlative job of documenting their work. Well worth the time to read their threads from beginning to end.
