We had the idea for this concept several years before deciding to build. The proirity was make it a real car, That means AC, Power steering, Full working gauge cluster and ABS and Honda EOM feel mounts that don't shake your filings loose.
With this build we tried to cover every possible issue, The insight is all aluminum( Except bumpers, fenders etc) which we thought may not be rigid enough to handle the weight and power of a K20a. We added extra bracing to the inner fender wells, built a complete aluminum sub frame that ties all undernieth together to build more stuture, added custom ully adjustable suspension and upgraded the brakes to OEM RSX-S calipers and rotors.
There's a lot of work that goes into building a K-Sight( The right way)
You can see why the builds take 60 days
Here's some of the process and what to expect:
Complete lower aluminum sub frame 8 point
Added 1/4" aluminum inner fender stiffing
6 Point upper front tie bar
Real OEM Mounts ( No vibration and teeth rattling)
11" brakes and larger calipers
Upgraded adjustable suspension
S2000 Steering wheel and gauge cluster
Engine bay repainted gloss and holes slicked over
Black housing head light and refinish
New wheels and tires
Low milage K20 with new clutch
DSS custom axles
Custom tuned 4 into 1 stainless header
3" aluminum powder coated intake
Stainless steel complete exhaust system ( Quiet)
All new fluids and oils
Full tuning. Gas mileage, driveabilty and power
Full AC, PS, ABS, Everything works!
Build time- 3 month
Price starting at $20,995
As part of the K-Sight package we use an S2000 cluster as it follows the same theme as the original digital look and feel plus is a pretty good match for the new power plant. We also changed the steering wheel to an S2000 leather wrapped wheel, this give a better look and feel and allow us to use factory cruise control.
Another part of the package was to use Honda OEM wheels refinished in our own custom color "gun metal" with new stickier tires.Another nice touch was to convert to black housing head lights, this gives a much sportier look as with the "K-Sight" logo in the seats ) Optional).Notice the custom arm rest with matching covering.(Optional
You can see the lower subframe that ties everything together, This not only adds rigidity but cradles the drive train.
On the right you can see the twin loop muffler, This takes alot of the noise away while still keeping the straight trow design.
As mentioned earlier this was to be a real car, we built our own twin loop muffler with inline resonator, custom 4-2-1 stainless header and intake this made 217whp while maintaining a very subtle exhaust note. Using the Hondata K-Pro and with some carefull tuning we managed to run the engine at 19 to 1 AF under light throttle/cruising by playing with cam angle and timing which gave us 48 mpg. The aerodinamics and light weight plays a big part.
We offer this in a 200+whp and Turbo 300+whp version.Again, these are designed to be real cars that can be driven everyday and to be enjoyed for many miles.With the power to weight of this set up it has to be one of the most funs cars I have driven.
