Yes the k24 can fit into any RSX. All RSX's use the k20 engine. Both the k24 & the k20 have the same engine mounts. The only thing you'll need to do is use the k24's cross beam. k24 are a bit taller than the k20. If you don't use the cross beam from k24 ... then you can't close the hood properly on the RSX. You could fabricate a custom hole/vent in the RSX hood or go build a fiberglass hood with a bit of a hump on it.The other think to worry about is that the engine from the TSX (k24a2) is very different from the k24's from Accord, Element, CRX. Mainly, the k24a2 uses fly by wire, so you'll have to not only use the k24a2 ecu, but also convert a bunch of stuff to deactivate the fly by wire feature.Good luck, have fun.

yeah the best thing to do is do a k24 with an rsx type s head. There is a lot to worry about with emissions componets wiring harnesses. But there are places that do this like hasport. Another thing to worry about is the k24 is a little taller so it needs to be mounted accordingly
