    Honda k20 conversion

    Did anyone make any kits for this?
    I got a call for it and vehicle was shipped to us.

    Looked like a one-off though. I imagine it's roughly the same as putting a Honda motor into a Lotus Elise. That would likely provide a better starting point.

    There isn't a kit because of the slight variations within Noble chassis making it difficult to simply build one set of mounts and axles to fit a Kseries in the car.
    There are a few shops that have built a few. Doubt if there's more than ten in the world.

    I put a K24A2 in my M400.
    Less weight (2340lbs vs. 2450lbs), similar power (410whp/360tq for K24 vs 435whp/400tq for the Ford v6).
    More revs and much easier to drive fast. ECU isn't locked down.
    Wiring is easy.

    That's less weight in the right area too.

    Can someone copy a set of mounts, I'm far too busy to design this from scratch?

    It's too bad they didn't make more of these cars, I'm sure that by now there would be 400+ on the road if 1G kept selling them.

    The right side mount is the most important one. Once that's made, the rest are easy to fab up and fall into place.

    but it also depends on two things:
    1. what Kseries (K20 vs K24)
    2. what engine bracket is being used (Rsx vs. CRV)

    How many engine mounts did you go with? I'm trying to plan my project. I was thinking you don't need four mounts for a 4 cylinder??
