I have been watching this for a while. They did a great job and it should be affordable.

You could use their swap kit and run the car off the stock ECU like @SolidSnake did.

I have seen them talking on their facebook page that they are looking into running the stock ecu for those in smog states.

This is sooooo exciting. Better start to hunt down a mint condition K24 and swap it in when the FA20 cooks.....haha.

I'm just amazed how Subaru managed to make an all-aluminum 4 cylinder weigh 140 lbs more than another all-aluminum 4 cylinder - both fully dressed.

For those that don't know, these guys make the "K Miata" kits in the Miata world and they know what they're doing. I have absolutely no doubt in my mind this kit will be of the highest quality. Not to mention, 17+ FA20's sell for $3,000+ while you can pick up a decent K24 for like $600 lol

Two cylinder heads, two set of cam shafts. The FA is a heavy motor for what it is. With 140lbs off the front end of the car, itís going to bring balance closer to 50/50.

Don't forget the huge oil pan sub-assembly. Boxer crankshafts are usually quite a bit lighter though. I am a bit concerned with their use of the OE transmission.

Should take it from 55/45 to ~52.5/47.5...

Hafta admit this is tempting vs. just getting a '22!

Right? Cams, set of springs and retainers. 240-260whp and 8200RPM

I dont see why the oem trans would be an issue. Even built K24s never get much over 190 lb/ft torque. For F/I they are using a different transmission option.

Guys are having syncro issues running the stock engine NA. Mine is starting to act up now after being fairly trouble free. Doesn't like to go down into 2nd and up into 5th as of the last year.

Hmm, how much of that is just due to milage or user error. Not saying you in can't drive properly.lol I suspect vast majority aren't having issue yah know.
