Thats way sweet man...but to me doesn't seem practical. I'm sure it's great for bragging rights but it looks like you stuffed and elephant into a tuxedo. Props though because I'm sure it wasn't easy. I'm still sticking w/ my b18c5 swap though. Cant wait. :number1

if you where lookin at it in person it really doesn't look stuffed in there, it really put the motor more on the pass side of the car & forward, that leaves plenty of room for a turbo cause theres a good foot between the firewall & motor...........good luck on the c5 swap

i had to get rid of my sol due to the lack of back seat and having a kid..... never got it to the track but i had a 75 shot on my car so i wonder what it would have ran :bomb makes me miss mine. after i did my sqap my hood kept smaking the top of the manifold. well no like horrible but enough to keep it from closing completley maybe my hood was tweeked or the mounts shitty. i had my moutns custom made at a machine shop. ended up changing the hood out to a vented carbon fiber hood and ft fine with hood pins

well my mom gave me the car , an i had a 99 si so once i found hybrid racing i knew k was the only way i wanted to go ,so i sold the si , drop a ls/vtec in for around town so i could keep savein ,sold the ls/vtec to a friend of mine and started on the all the k stuff as far total price in the car probaly about 13k to 15k ..............check out the classified for my other add


different mount make the motor sit different ways..with the hybrid mounts you got to grind about a inch into the power steering rack to clear the trans.the hood shutting was one of my concerns so as soon as the motor was in, that was the first thing we did...every thing worked out just perfect ,it was a very straight forward swap ,only thing that held us up was the cruch fitting for the fuel line

once the pass mount was cut off & the power steering rack was grinded down it took about 30 mins to get the motor bolted in , i don't trust shops ,me and two of my friends did the whole swap
