K20 donor car bought!

So after years of dreaming and saving all my pennies, literally building the workshops and garage to work on the car I'm now an owner of an EP3! This will ultimately be used to donate it's engine to my Jazz!!! I bought a complete donor car for 2 main reason:

1. The engine definetly works
2. I will have every supporting part to make it work on the Jazz


I will hopefully this summer start the work and begin to offload spare parts so if there's any parts people need put your dibs in now.

K20 Build Begins

Hasport mounts arrived



Spare engine to mock up the correct engine space



More information to follow I've got the Hasport Axles too !!!

Right so sorting out the garage to create the work area for the swap:



Hopefully engine stand will come today so I can clean this mess up, don't want to be covered in oil everytime I offer up the engine to the space


Mock up engine has spun big end bearings will have a play to see if anything is reusable for spares if not free play thing, engind stand in the post should help:



Now if I can just move these to my other new workshop I can actually get the car in!!!

18 Bikes!!!



New Bike workshop



Got just a few wheel and tyre options




More goodies arrive

J's replica





Engine removed left as rolling chassis for now removed Radiator support as new Mishimoto Radiator to replace old ones.



To maintian a rolling chassis you need to crack off the 32mm nuts on each hub and then remove axles leaving the hubs, subframe, suspension intact. This is achievable as I have removed the exhaust manifold, cables and front radiator support.



I imagine that the Hasport recomendation to drop the subframe and take the engine out would be a better option if you can do it this way. As I have limited garage space I need to still be able to move the shell and didn't want to put the subframe and crap all together again.



Taller Ball joints as required when lowering your suspension:

Hasport engine mount test fitted on mock up engine.

So been a bit busy at work life etc yawn... but now getting stuck in.
Only parts I'm waiting on are:
The hydraulic slave cylinder hose from HEL as you have to run the EP3 cylinder so as I will need to re-bleed the system a braided hose fro 25 quid seems a worthwhile endeavour.

the INNOVATIVE engine mounts as they will cope with the power!!!

I also need now to do the fab work:
Cutting for clearance and MR. Glock on K20.Org did a nice job moving the abs pump and creating enough space for the motor. click here http://www.k20a.org/forum/showthread...=104758&page=3
I'm not sure about removing as much material as he did tough as I don't need the engine flexing itself free from the car, on further review it's onlt the rails after the engine mounts so needs only support the bumper radiator etc. I'll go for it. Choppy chop chop time.

As there is now a cloud for this forum I'll do a picture dump later on peps.
Sorry for the wait

K20a2 in honda jazz UKDM

Engine finally in!!!

Dash loom and doom

Right so here were are at the scary part of the project:

The dash and loom issue.

The plan is to run an all EP3 Setup clocks etc.

Known issues:
1.) The ABS pump different pin layout on the Jazz/fit.
2.) Immobilizer on ignition key and steering column
3.) SRS airbags removed and may throw SRS engine light fault MOT failure

Possible solutions:

1.) Replace ABS pump with EP3 one so loom compatible or re-pin
2.) Run Kpro ECU or DC5 ecu as no immobilizer
3.) find a resistor if needed or splice the dash light into a feed for the ABS or other ignition based light.

firewall minus the dash





Disgusting filth from under the seal on the petrol pump

So bought a cheap gasless MIG welder so guess that just an ARC welder as there's no gas for the MIG bit lol.

So one all the fab work is done the new engine can go in.








first fabricated piece for the radiator support. The holes are as the sheet is off cuts from my pegboards so looks funky and maybe weight savings lol.





close up still has pinholes but will do for now. may have to weld from the back for a stronger weld.





So hit it with a quick splash of primer to prevent rust prior to addressing the pinholes.



Zero mile engine !!! one of a kind.





And now this happened WTF. Guess a spark hit it. Once completed the whole build will go up on Youtube. Hopefully it'll be OK, however I'm not a film maker. Hopefully this can help any other sucker daft enough to do this swap.

So after years of avoiding it I've started to upload videos on to YouTube of the build:
like subscribe and comment. I'll try and answer questions. I'm not a pro this is just a hobby and there to help others do the swap. All feedback welcome.
