OK sorry for the delay in posting the latest on the swap. Hasport has been working on a couple other projects, but has now gotten the Fit into the shop and has pulled the engine/trans and are installing the K series engine. It should be up and running in the next several days. I will be going over today to take a few pics. Once we have it running I'll be driving it around until we can get the L15B Turbo swap ready to go in. We're looking for a 6 speed swap so that may take of bit of seaching/waiting until one comes available.

I bought them at a dealer discount so I can't say exactly how much you'd pay for them, plus I got the DR series so that added a bit. Contact Heel-Toe Auto and check on what they can do for you.

Next up for the Fit is taking the seats to get them redone with the Civic Si cushions and backs. Also picked up an Si steering wheel that we'll be installing.

I guess I misunderstood what you were trying to get across in your above update. I thought the Fit was going into Hasport to design the mounts for the L15 turbo swap. Am I missing something?

Thanks for update!

Hasport is working on improving the K swap mounts first and then will be creating the L15 mounts.

Car is being used as a test mule while at Hasport.

Cant wait to see how both swaps turn out, and hoping for more innovation on fit K swaps.

Looks like we will have to move a couple of things to get enough clearance for the fans.

cool! It's definitely not a pretty engine, but factory turbocharged is awesome.

W

e test fitted the new cable ends using the stock cables as this seemed like the easier solution than using the RSX cables. Pic of new bracket attached. We will probably make new brackets for the RSX cables as well for those who have already purchased that cable type.

Also had to do some minor mods to the axle area for the lower shock mount, putting a dent in the axle and grinding a notch to allow the shock to fit into the lower mount. The BC shock body is just slightly too large. I suspect the JDM Fit has a slightly different axle.

Next up is the install of the cowl to fender braces. Here again the USDM Fit must be slightly different than the JDM Fit as we have to weld a .090 steel template with welded nuts to the fender area in order to bolt the brace in place since there's no way to access the nuts from inside the fender rail. Pics to follow.
