Book Report: Honda K-Series Engine Swaps


The Honda K-Series engine was introduced in 2001, replacing the B-Series as the engine of choice for Honda enthusiasts.



These new K-Series engines are the most powerful stock Honda/Acura engines you can get. They featured new technology including a roller rocker valvetrain, better flowing heads, and advanced variable cam timing technology that made these engines suddenly the thing to have. And that’s where the engine swappers come in.

In Honda K-Series Engine Swaps, author Aaron Bonk guides you through all the details, facts, and figures you will need to complete a successful K-Series swap into your older chassis. All the different engine variants are covered, as well as interchangeability, compatibility, which accessories work, wiring and controls operation, drivetrain considerations, and more.


While you can still modify your existing B-Series, dollar for dollar, you can’t make more power than you can with a Honda K-Series engine.
If you have an older chassis and are looking for a serious injection of power and technology, swapping a K-Series engine is a great option. Honda K-Series Engine Swaps will tell you everything you need to know.

About the Author
Aaron Bonk first took an interest in Honda performance in the early 1990s. After studying mechanical engineering, he established Holeshot Racing – the first tuning shop to specialize in Honda engine swaps. There, Bonk developed many Honda-specific engine transplants, long before engine mount kits and aftermarket wiring harnesses were realities. He later transitioned into a career as an automotive journalist, authoring two Honda technical books.
He has since held staff positions and contributed regularly to various Honda performance magazines and many other print and online publications. Bonk recently served as Honda Tuning magazine’s editor-in-chief where he continues to contribute regularly.
