We will probably be starting it with the stock turbo so we understand what is needed for the swap which most people will be doing and then we will swap in the Type R turbo. I will get some pics of the final mounts and then its onto electrical and ecu now
Nice work!

Well since we will be starting it up with the stock turbo we needed a downpipe, this is our downpipe for the 10th gen Civic should fit nice with minimal mods.

We wanted to get the swap running with most of the stock parts to better understand it for you guys and then we will swap on the Type R turbo after

Some couplers and piping for the intercooler, few pipes will need to be custom made due to the chassis differences

Out goes the L15Z single cam

This is fantastic news! Especially in this part of the world where we can only get the single cam l15z engine from the dealer. Can't wait to see the results and figures!

Simply....wow! I honestly didn't think this was going to happen. Will this be a package deal like the KSight?

Out of curiosity, would the 10th gen Civic 6-speed tranny bolt on to the Fit's L15B1? I ask this because if I do pursue the complete swap with your kit, I would like to swap my tranny out immediately for more acceptable highway RPM's with my Fit's L15B1 - and then swap out the engine for the L15B7 once I finish building it up. I guess we can refer to it as a two-phase swap (phase 1: tranny, phase 2: engine).

The trans is bigger than a K series trans, it will in no way fit an older L15

Not the older L15, but the latest one (L15B1) which the Fit GK (2015-present) chassis uses. Will it fit?

None of them do this L15b7 trans is huge, actually going to be making an adapter kit for the K series trans to bolt to the 10th gen engine since they are more available

Wow. That's interesting. So I guess the L15B7 block is totally different from the L15B1. I figured the dimensions and mounting holes would be similar, but I guess not.

K tranny on an L15B7 would be awesome!
