Default What you guys feel about k20 swap?

I got Honda civic lx 2004 and thinking to do k20 swap after it hits 300k it's 160k right now. On eBay the engine comes with everything and auto transmission. I will buy t3 turbo kit from eBay as well which is 700$ what you guys think if I put it on auto trans? I mean I hear people saying you can't because the car shifts too fast. Actually they are wrong... On my lx if I keep gassing the car little by little it doesn't change gear until I keep holding the accelerator in one place. So I can change gear near redline everytime. Should I make it turbo on auto bec my sis will also be driving it and they can't DRIVE stick... Thanks in advance

Do it! Just make sure you do all your research before you spend the money on a turbo. The only hard part is the ECU and TCU and tuning. I have a turbo auto Civic but it's an older 1998 D16. On my car the TCU is not separate. I don't know about yours or the K20.

It can be done that's for sure but you'll need to know everything first so you can make the right decisions on your set-up.

Some ebay stuff is crap but some is ok. A lot of my parts including the turbo, intercooler & manifold were ebay items and are good, however, most of the silicone or rubber couplings were poor. Just make sure you get a decent wastegate, that is the most important part.

Join some forums, there are lots of good ones out there and they are pretty invaluable for info and help.
