Default What mods are needed for a k20a2 swap in a 04 civic?

I am looking into putting a k20a2 engine in my 04 civic lx 5 speed manual sedan. What if any mods or other parts will I need for the swap? I am planning on having a shop do it rather than myself. Will I need other parts or just the engine?

You can't afford to have a shop do it. Why? If you could, you wouldn't be driving a civic.

Just because Hondas are legos doesn't mean you can put millenium falcon parts in your egyptian pharoah set cheap and easy.

Do you guys even look at the cost of a k20 prior to asking these questions? Might as well just turbo the d you have under the hood. Hell...the compression ratio is (dare I say) good for decent boost. Just swap the head with a DOHC setup. Don't tell anyone...I'll get in trouble.

Default may be able to help you, though I would not recommend the swap.

someone said swap the head with a DOHC setup, you can't put a DOHC head on your SOHC D17 motor. i own one of these cars, all you need to know is at - i've done the swap and it ran me about 6000 total including everything, i did everything myself and it is pretty expensive but worth it in the long run. a shop will run you maybe 8-9k total.
