that would definintely be the best idea. given what it would cost you to custom fabricate everything you needed to swap a F20 into a FWD car, let alone the price of the motor itself, you could spend a fraction of that with the K20A install and only be short 20hp and 10 ft/lbs....98civic4door said:The S2000 engine is a good engine and does make 240 NA but it is not the best engine honda has to offer,I'd rather put that money towards a JDM Type R K20 swap

krazykloudz said:umm... trust me... a normal or common swap, like the b16 or lsvtec for the civics or the h22a in the accords is hard enough and expensive and tedious enough mang... why would you want to even try to think about swapping a FR engine into a FF car? Waste of time, waste of money, waste of a good engine. The s2000 motor is fairly torqueless.... to get any power out of the engine, you have to rev that sucker high into the r's. Yea, it has 240hp but that is somewhere near 8000 rpms... so the climb from idle up, the engine is a little weak... and since the power is made that high in rpm's and since it doesn't have that great of torque, the car is hard to drive because you have to keep it in the powerband to get it to go anywhere. (which is one reason why they went from the original 2.0 engine in the first s2000's to the current 2.2's in the newer ones) Hell drive the s2000 on GT3 or GT4 and if it's in it's stock form you'll see that it sucks driving it out of some of the turns becuase you are at the wrong speed to downshift to a lower gear but you're still kinda low in the rpm's in your current gear... kinda sucks. The K20 would be a good way to go, i've seen vids of those things tear up some pavement. One way or another, the answer to your question is yes, with time and lots of money, but don't.
