here's the deal. any engine will fit in any car, it's just a matter of how much money and headache it will take. there's not a lot of room in the del sol engine bay, so to do it would involve extensive body mods, and i mean fabrication, welding, and frankenstein engine management. the only way to go for a del sol, in terms of the least bs and the most power, is a turbo b16a honda engine.

NO it will not fit. The SRT-4 engine is designed to run opposite meaning the way it would have to sit in your engine bay it would have to be configured to turn in the opposite direction internally to go forward. Also WHY? the SRT-4 engine is about $4000 with all components and is only 215 HP at the crank. A B18C1 from a GSR is about $1,500 and is 170 HP at the crank. Add a turbonetics turbo kit and VOILA 240-260 WHEEL horsepower. Plus you have a LOT easier time installing the motor. The fabrication necessary to fit the SRT-4 motor in the Del-Sol alone would be $10,000-$15,000, and that's NO parts. This swap done correctly would cost you about $20,000-$25,000 to get it running correctly. Now to put this in perspective a 2004-2005 SRT-4 COMPLETE CAR sells for about $14,000.

If your going for something fast get the k20a. It Makes 220hp which is like only 10hp less than the Set 4 and keep in mind that's it's a non turbo motor. technically it's way faster than the srt4 with the k20 swap because of its weight. I'm not saying the the swap is impossible because it's not it's just unnecessary to spend so much money on something that only makes 234hp with a turbo which by the way is pathetic.A k20a swap will cost you about $8000.If you want something with a turbo get a gsr and add a turbo. Its can run on the stock block at 12psi making about 250+ horse power to the wheels well tuned

it'll fit but its gonna be way to big for a stock unmodified engine bay. why not just get a different engine made for honda such as dropping in a k20. it wont cost nearly as much and its already set for a honda engine bay and trans
