Engine specs are:

2006 TSX Long Block
50 degree VTC Gear
Kmiata / RSX Type S Oil Pump with KJ Built Spring
HTP Lower Chain Guide
Modified Double Keyed Lower Timing Gear
Skunk 2 Ultra Race Manifold (port matched to stock ports)
RDX 410cc Injectors
Ktuned 90mm Throttle Body
Kmiata Big Tube Header
3" Custom Exhaust(15" resonator,Borla XR-1 Muffler)

Was tuned on Xenocrons Mainline Dyno, Those numbers are converted from mainline dyne to dynojet. Something that the mainline software can do. Chris told me the mainline reads 18% lower than the typical dynojet.

The reason I bought the race intake and big tube header was to cover my bases, Obviously i don't intend on leaving the car as is. So weather i decide to Build it all motor, or turbo or supercharge i will have the parts i need. The GE manifold that K miata sells would make a bit better torque, I liked the S2 manifold because of the CNC porting options available and if i were to go roots blower its easier to sell the S2 manifold back to the honda community.

Im very very happy with the setup, it rips pretty hard. I have a few house keeping things i want to do on the car, some small details to straighten out. But all in all it runs pretty bad ***.

Things i plan to add are a aem oil pressure sensor to data log the oil pressure and a Xenocron/racespec ground speed setup, so i can input actual vehicle speed and use launch control.

Damn, sounds really really good as well. I wish I was aware of the K swap a year ago.

You should try it with a 4.10 like my car

Perfect road race gearing, but your 3.6 will be especially nice once you add more power.

I really like the gearing, i had 6spd and 4.10s before these gears, i felt it was way to short. They were to short for drifting (to much shifting) and made 1st to short for drag racing. The K24 makes serious torque for naturally aspirated 4cyl.

Motor, with everything attached, this includes alternator and starter. Wiring and charge harness to strip for little plugs and bullshit ( you will need 02-04 rsx-s harness) if its a manual, keep the flywheel bolts. Thats about it really.

You will need some stuff from rsx-s and EP3 civic for the swap.

Added a xenocron wheel speed sensor on the front wheel, this lets me input speed into the kpro for gear based stuff and launch control.

I also added a aem oil pressure sensor to log that, and braced the differential by tying it into the 6point brace.

Next week it's going to the strip to see what it's got.

Low 13's on street tires.

Boost by gear mainly (if I boost)
I wanted 2step before going to the track.

There are gear based fuel and ignition correction too.
