F20C TA22

As far as cross breeding goes, I’d say this is pretty subtle. An F20C 2.0L from a Honda S2000 gets transplanted into a 1973 TA22 Toyota Celica. That classic Japanese shape reflects the golden years of JDM styling, while the contemporary heart hailing from a different manufacturer – yet the same country of origin – showcases just how far 4cylinder technology has developed. The owner has managed to capture the best of both worlds, old and new, without going so far as to make a Frankenstein out of the car.

    I am interested in doing a similar engine swap, Honda B series into a mini circle track race truck. What transmission and bell housing will bolt to the Honda engine? I am also limited by rules to a single carb. any suggestions? There is not a lot of info out on Honda swaps, all help is much appreciated

    Jeff, if you are thinking RWD then think again. Honda B series rotate the opposite way to conventional engines. Maybe look at the F20C as above, or K20A (also Honda) mated to a Toyota W series G/Box using one of these https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.540482446010757.1073741825.405251929533810&type=1
