Hi all.Some of you already know me and the car i own.Yes its a JDM Honda Fit hybrid RS 2012.it was CVT with paddle-shifts.It has(had) LEA-ZF1 engine same as crz.
I did turbo it and had a lot of fun but although my turbo and injectors etc had more potential to up boost but cvt was slipping beyond 190 hp 180tq.so i was little disappointed that i cant upgrade clutch etc but i was satisfied and having lot fun.But (LOL there is always a but
) due to bad quality fuel engine got blown.Although i did find new engine and got it installed the next day but i was wondering what if same tragedy repeats itself?
Here is the thread which tells in detail the whole story if you have time
so i decided to make plunge and go k-swap.as labour is cheap(200$) here and importing JDM k20r engine is also not so expensive.4500$ including shipment.
Some may argue why i am posting in a CRZ forum? well it is a crz in shape of honda fit hybrid and i will be using HAsport mounts for CRZ and my ecu pinout is exactly same as 2012 crz.so here goes.
As fewer k-swaps have been done this way.i.e civic si wiring+ crz wiring combined and using flashpro.
Most swaps have been done using flash-pro and k20 wiring harness modified.
The benifits of civic si ecu+flashpro are
Retains drive by wire feature and same accelerator paddle
keeps ecu in engine bay
Dash clusters works fine
VSA,traction control ABS etc work
Electronic power steering works.
i plan on using short ram intake as fit has a duct which leads cold air directly to air filter location.
Headers with cat delete
73 mm RX8 throttle body(its direct bolt on and has DBW feature)
2.5 inch exhaust with vibrant ultra quit resonator and megan racing N1 4"muffler
HAspot mounts for crz
civic si ecu plus complete wiring harness
hondata flash pro
Estimated Hp near 250.(k20r comes stock 220)
Estimated new vehicle weight 1050 kg(previous 1140kg,due to IMA and batteries)
ok enough said.lets go to build.its Day 2
when i am making this thread.As our experienced electriction has shifted to Dubai so we have new electricion.so i am little worried about wiring part but i will keep you guys posted and may ask some things too.
The engine JDM k20r with LSD and 6 Speed MT
Bye bye IMA (i kinda feel said for it)
Preparing for hole in firewall for clutch paddle
Engine bay waiting for new engine.the CRZ ecu A plug has been retained.civic si ecu B and C plugs will be used for engine and dash will run via crz A plug
Trial to see mounts fitment
