Karcepts 36mm Swap Hubs provide the SOLUTION for upgrading to OEM Honda/Acura 36mm axles in high powered 1988-2005 Civics, 1990-2001 Integras, 1988-1991 CRXs, and 2009-2013 Fits. Perfect for K-Swaps; but can also be used with high output B, D, F, H, and J-Swaps.
Like breaking axles? Level 1 Swap Axles just don't cut the mustard with a rating of only 200WHP. Whose K-Swap doesn't make over 200WHP?!? Level 2.9 Swap Axles are not much better of an alternative as they still utilize the smaller Civic/Integra/CRX axle spline and will run a good $800 for a pair. This is where OEM Honda/Acura 36mm axles fit in. They utilize a substantially larger axle spline which allows them to handle higher horsepower and torque outputs, yet they are extremely cost effective. This larger axle spline is observed in chassis such as the Acura RSX-S, Honda 06+ Civic Si, and Honda Prelude. Unfortunately, this larger spline is unable to be installed directly into OEM Civic, Integra, or CRX hubs, so that is where our Karcepts 36mm Swap Hubs come into play. Karcepts Hubs are modeled almost exactly after the OEM Honda/Acura hubs they replace, except that the splines now match that of the larger 36mm axles. Side Note: Internet forum terminology has named the larger OEM spline axles 36mm. We have conformed to that terminology as not to confuse others. However; for educational and axle identification purposes, 36mm is actually the socket size used for the axle nut of these larger spline axles. The larger spline diameter in reality measures 29.50mm on these axles.
- CNC turned out of billet high strength chrome-moly steel
- Oil quenched and tempered
- Maintains OEM rotor-centric attributes
- Includes 2.50" long ARP extended studs
- Designed for the larger OEM 29.50mm axle spline (36mm axle nut socket)
- OEM 36mm axles have proven time and again to easily sustain 500+ WHP
Use Karcepts P/N: KWH08 for a custom 36mm USDM ITR 5-lug EF/DA conversion. These hubs are identical to our KWH05 hubs with the exception that the bearing journal is cylindrical ground to DA (USDM 1990-1993 Acura Integra) specifications. These hubs can be used for 5x114.3 conversions on EF/DA chassis per information provided here. However, please note that these hubs can only be installed into USDM 1990-1993 Acura Integra knuckles. So if desiring to use these hubs on a 36mm 5-lug EF conversion, you must also need to utilize DA knuckle assemblies into the EF chassis. These hubs use a 42mm I.D. wheel bearing.
