So far all by myself.... of course the forum(s) have been helping me as wellprojecthatch92 said:awesome thread man. are you doing all this by yourself, cuz if you are, that's impressive.
Basically you'll need to unplug the antenna and route it back to where it enters the pillar/under dash. Once you have the antenna free from everything under the dash you can pull the entire assembly out from the antenna hole after you remove the cover of course.projecthatch92 said:quick question, how did you get the antenna and everything out, because i don't use my radio and always wanted to take it out, but got really impatient and gave up. :bash
Thanks man for the kind words! If my thread helps just one person then to me all the pics/post are worth it :clappyPutney said:I am doing a K-series swap in August in my EG and I will look back to this thread. this is one of the most detailed threads I have ever read. Just awsome! You're Number One in my book. :number1
Not sure yet. At this time I am leaning toward a single size radiator and slim fan. I've thought about going with a full size rad. and have not eliminated it at this point.Putney said:What radiator are you going to use and are you making re-locator brackets or is there a kit?
Besides regulating the fuel pressure, I don't know why. I really don't know that much about the swap :cry I've been reading as much as I can on k20a.org Just sooooooo much info to learn.Putney said:Why do K-series swaps need Fuel Pressure Regulators, on one can tell me the reason, maybe you can; you seem to know what you're doing.
Thanks again man :number1Putney said:Oh, mad crazy reps! :w00tz
I tried a heat gun on the door glue which sucked!! This is my 2nd time using the dry ice method on the sound deadning material. I've seen numerous people go this route, works like a charm, and a grocery store 3 minutes from my house sells it. It's .99 p/lb but damn it hardens that sticky $hit up like Terminator 2, lol :hehericeboy89 said:*suscribe*
and for the dry ice thing ur using. its easier to use a heat gun to zap the deadner/glue/etc then scrape it off using the heat gun vs the dry ice.
Thanks, didn't know that :ninjakommon_sense said:Don't forget that the stock brake booster vacuum line has a built-in one-way valve and you need that when you swap in the k20. A lot of people forget that...
kommon_sense said:This would also be a good time to swap in the quaife steering rack pinion and install the Energy Suspensions Steering Rack Cushion.
I was looking in the Helms yesterday with the steering and really thinking about getting the Quaife steering. Pretty much made up my mind to drop the subframe / steering for a better paint job.
I've heard mixed reviews about keeping/disgarding the canister. At this point I am leaning toward ditching it and venting the line at the rear by the tank...kommon_sense said:You should also keep the charcoal canister to prevent smelling gas fumes in the cabin. Unfortunately these wear out over time, so you may need to put in a new one.
I read on HT about it, but can't recall off the top of my head.lowcivic66 said:Quick relevant question, how many turns to lock is that rack?
Thanks again guys for the props and I'll post some progress (not to much) pics tonight.
www.hybrid-racing.com has a radiator that they recommend and a slim fan to go with it, I think I might buy it, but they want like $500 for it, so maybe not.Hybrid93Hatch said:Thanks guys for the props!! +1 for the feedback / support :number1 (Won't allow anymore +1's, get the rest tomorrow)!!

That's pretty pricey. I'm going to look at all the options before making a decision. I'd like to keep the radiator / fan under $250 :hehePutney said:
LOL :lol2lowcivic66 said:Word...lol this thread is great makes me want to take my whole car apart for the hell of it.
Thanks for the props!! :w00tzPutney said:Completely awsome, this will come in handy when I do my K swap in August. I just love seeing pics of the work in progress, it makes you reallize what it took to make a car look great. I hope you end up in a magazine or something.
