I have that 4G62t in my garage. Came out of a Tredia. Get the trans out of a Mitsu pickup and you're set. Another idea is the 2.6 from a Starion. You might have access to one soon enough, if Chee gets his JZ. The 4G62t is a 1.8 liter with a decent output. I believe the stock output was 135 hp easily upgraded to about 160 with just intake aqnd exhaust mods.

I'll tell ya right now he doesn't want the Starion engine. He is looking for a simple high revving engine, not a big and brute large displacement motor.

I've been around guys that have the 2.6 spinning to 8,000 rpm! Sound like stock 4AGE revving.

The 4G62 is rev happy once the turbo kicks in. Really only suggested the two engines above due to the possible ease of availability on the 2.6, and the one in my garage is available now. And if Bevin went with the 4G62, the switch to a 4G63 is almost a drop in change, uses the same mounting points. Minor changes in the wiring. Minor exhaust possible. I don't really want anything for the engine. I think I still have all the parts too. The turbo still turns freely. Just tring to help out.  It's alway easier when parts are available and cheap.

I thought the car was getting an F20C.  No?  I think it's worth it if you can swing it.  What a motor (and transmission).

As far as I remember, all the Honda engines spin counterclockwise. But who knows, maybe they got one right.

The K series engines in the RSX, TSX and S2000 (F20C) spin clockwise.

So that guy is saying the K20 spins CW. stupidfast, is this true?
