A nice N/A built ka24e or L28 would be sweet in this thing.


What's the deal with you thinking an inline 6cyl either fits (it don't) or belongs (it don't) in a B210/210? :P

Why chop up a perfectly good car for such little gain?!? Do you know how long and how heavy an L6 is?!?

Now KA24E, I'm with you. At least it fits... :mrgreen:

I did an engine swap before on my integra and it was kind of a nightmare... For this i wanna keep it simple and do an N/A A series or another engine that might bolt in from the 70s with more support ?? still havent done much research on it.

FWIW, there are plenty of shops/people on the west coast familiar enough with the swap to do the wiring for you.

Plenty of A-series aftermarket support out there. But a lot of stuff is in Japan, and spendy.

Sounds like an L16/L18/L20b is what you need. Only wiring is lengthening the distributor wiring, and the Aussies say that with a 610 crossmember/oil pan it's nearly a bolt-in.

Having said that, I would suggest you do the basics to the stock engine first. Ditch all the smog gear (probably doesn't work anyway), get a 1200 carb for it (swap in B210 jets), get a 210 electronic distributor (bolt-in, no more points!). After doing this I was a LOT happier with the performance of the A14. :tu:

Perfect! I was looking for some simple upgrades for the stockie !! Any DIY on this site on any of those, are they on your thread ? What is really bothering me is the headers and that hole they have on them, its like having one huge exhaust leak ! :cry: Is there any headers out there for the A series ?

No, but I can talk you through it. All are super simple to do. :tu:

Headers are out there, just have to do some digging. To my knowledge no one is still making them new. :(

FYI, having flow benched the stock manifold versus 3 different headers, it's not worth it. Only gains were over 6500rpm.

Step #1 is to find a distributor from a '79-82 210, preferably the one with the black box on the side. Looks like this:

Step #2, pop it in and roughly set the timing. If you made sure to get the connector from the JY where you got the distributor, there are two wires coming out of the distributor. Look on the black box and you'll see one says "C" (Common, aka ground/negative) and "B" (Battery, aka positive). Just run those two wires to the proper coil terminals. Then set the timing with a proper timing light, and away you go. Took me all of 15 minutes to do this on my B210.

It is often recommended that you also swap in the coil from the 210 (or something like an MSD Blaster 2 coil), but it's not mandatory. Rumors abound of the stock coil failing after awhile with the electronic distributor but I've personally never seen it.

So if you get your dizzy from the JY, nab the coil too. :wink:
