Default Engine swap in an acura rsx?

I love rsx's and am going to get one soon. I dont want to be like everyone else so I was wondering if it would be possible to put a pontiac grand prix GTP motor in it. If so would I have to replace the tranny too? thx

why would you want to do something like that? if you are gonna get the base rsx put the k20a2 in it. if your gettin the type s put a k24a2 in it and slap some boost on it. putting a pontiac engine in an acura will be a dumb move.

Bad idea...Try swapping to a TSX engine or something to that effect.

put the engine from rdx, and it's compatible too. You will have something that's much better than the type-r

you want to put a v6 into that car? you will need MAJOR fabrication of everything and yes you will need a new tranny the acura won't be able to handle the power from that engine. you will be better off trying to fit a J35 2005 Acura TL V6 (290HP) into that car...

putting a tl engine in the car would be nic but hes gonna need custom motor mounts. the k20a3, k20a2, k20a, and k24a2 are all interchangeable so he could use whichver motor mounts he wanted or he could polyurethane mounts so the engine doesnt flex as much.the k24 is going to be the most expensive out of the bunch with the exception of the k20a which is jdm spec and might not pass usa emissions. the k20a3 is the lower end with a whopping 160 hp but is the most fuel economical with vtc and i-vtec on the intake side. the k20a2/k24,k20 all have the standard vtec that people think of with the vtec on the intake and exhaust cams
