Hello, Thank you for your comments.
This engine is normally latitude, so required custom fitting parts to utilize S2K manual transmission. Those can be purchased in the US. Japanese tuning shop, S&A autocreate , installed it very nicely.
The HP could be approx. 200HP as K24A2 stock for Odyssey absolute. Not so much power, but enough torque for easy drive:)

Beautiful car. Welcome to the site. I noticed that your car is left hand drive as well. Is that rare to see in Japan?

Thank you! Could be the first swap on 510. Actually, I planned SR20 swap at the beginning, but it was difficult to find a good one in Japanese junk yard. Thanks to Miyata or S2K swappers, K24A2 is becoming a feasible option now:) Much cheaper than F20C on S2K and many tuned parts are available in the market! My 510 is a kind of proto-swap with K24A, so I'm looking forward to seeing more insane Datun in the near future.

Welcome! Very cool swap. You have got me contemplating. Do you have any pictures of the underside of the car? I would like to see what you did for the oil pan and stuff. Do you know how much weight was added with this engine?

Thank you, Duke!

Unfortunately, I don't have a clear pic of the under floor. The shop, S&A auto create in Japan, did really good work on oil pan and crossmember to avoid travel range of steering link.

As for added weight, I have not measured it, but I found some numbers on the web as shown below... Significant increase!! :shock:
L16: 260lbs
K24A2: 413lbs
Diff: 153lbs

Thank you!
Your racing car also looks very cool with Refresh 60 decal:) I live in Yokohama, and near Refresh 60. Very sadly, it will be closed within this year :(
