K24z7 swap GK5 Coming soon

Just wanted to let you guys know, we will be doing a 9th gen Civic Si K swap into the Gk5 Fit and working directly with Hasport to make this happen. Once we have this up and running the goal is to Turbo the Gk5 and be around 400whp on stock block and trans. The swap should be happening around July sometime and I will fill you guys in with all the info.

Wow. This will be pretty cool.

Just curious, what made you choose the GK vs the GE or GD platform?

Goal once the turbo kit is all settled in is to crank up the boost for 600whp with a built lower end and some magic

I chose the GK because we have one and it should be a pretty basic swap for the 9th gen Civic Si motor.

What do you anticipate the full cost of this will be?

Does that mean you guys gave up on the potential for turboing the gk5 L15?

I honestly don't see the point turboing this car, rods are just to weak. Better off doing a 10th gen Civic 1.5 T swap if anything

How weak are the rods? How much power over the stock 130hp are they capable of handling?

Somewhat related, it's being reported that the upcoming 2018 Civic Si's 1.5 turbo engine (which I have to assume is a tweaked version of the existing Civic's 1.5 turbo engine, or even just increased boost) is going to be rated at 192 lb-ft. HP numbers remain unreleased.

2018 Honda Civic Si will have 192 lb-ft of torque - Autoblog

It's not a big leap over the existing Civic's 1.5T torque output, but depending on the HP-rating, this engine could be a great swap candidate for the current Fit without upsetting the chassis weight balance. I haven't paid much attention to the existing 1.5 turbo tuning to know what they are capable of, maybe it might make more sense to get the existing 1.5 turbo engine with tune and supporting mods, but maybe not.

K-series will of course be amazing as well in this Fit chassis, I'm excited to see either of them done to figure out how complete the swap can be done and for how much. Things like all factory gauges working, AC, and smog/OBDII compatibility are important to many of us.

If these swaps can be engineered fully, with mount conversions and everything else needed that requires minimal if any chassis modifications, with an all-in between say $4-7K depending on options, it would be very enticing for me.

Probably doing the swap in August, putting the rest of the parts together, still need to get the turbo and manifold, Full Race are partially sponsoring the build along with Hasport and a few other companies
