    Correct. Although we will probably just support Hondata Kpro for the E30. And you can use any 2002-2004 RSX harness, including an auto one, so that helps a lot.

        So regardless if we are using a k24a2, or a k20, we will need to run the 2002-2004 rsx harness?

        Hope the weekend goes well for you guys!

          Is AC something can be easily retained with the KMiata/garagistic/other swap kits? Kinda necessary for me where I live.

            Yes, should be doable since the stock K A/C compressor will fit in the stock location. Our car has the P/S pump mounted down in the A/C compressor spot, so you'd just need to put that somewhere else. We're working on a couple ideas to make everything compatible together.

              TL;DW: We fried the KPro, but we're trying to make it compatible with 3 different transmissions and we're trying different oil pan designs.

                  Are you sure that's a Jet Rag transmission?

                      So garagistic just sold out of their first run of kswap mounts but i haven seen anything showing that they got their swap running yet. Fucatypr any news on the antipurist swap/ harness? Kmiata has theirs running andhave done some track testing. I know they wanted more testing till they released any more info. Just wondering if you are doing non track testing KMiata till the track opens up again

                        Yeah we are a bit stuck right now thanks to the tracks all being closed. The car is solid, we are just making a couple of small tweaks. We never sell parts without doing rigorous testing first. Fixtures are already built for our oil pan and mounts, but nothing goes into production until it's 110% proven. Despite the slow down, I don't see any reason why we can't have a very complete package in people's hands this summer.

                          So KMiata, does this mean a custom pan is required for mounting the K to the stock e30 subframe? Sounds like a yes.

                            Yes, absolutely.

                                This is really interesting. What concerns me about these custom swaps though is the ease of getting replacement parts. For example, let's say there's a limited run of conversion parts made. Then down the line you crack the oil pan and you're out of luck. So here's my suggestion: Make the oil pan a 2-piece like on a stock E30 4-cylinder engine and make it so the lower pan is an off-the-shelf item, such as the M42 lower pan. That way if you break it, which we know will happen on lowered E30s, you can quickly get a cheap replacement. So that's why my preference always goes to engine swaps that use off-the-shelf parts.
