I saw an early 80s Civic POS run a 14.9. I asked him about it, and he said he transplanted brand spanking new DOHC VTEC engine in it. He wouldn't tell me what size, out of what car or anything. Or what other mods he had.

Real sleeper that car. It literally looked like it was falling apart from the outside. Rust, flaking paint, everything.

about the mini-me swap...

You have to swap the d16 head onto a 1.6 litre non-vtec block, or can you also slap it on the 1.5?

my friend is sorta interested in swapping the vtec head onto his block, but he's got a DX hatch, so its a 1.5L.

I already have vtec on my ex.

My car dying...The nerve of you all. Naw, I guess it's the auto thing. I take pride in my slow civic, up to date oil changes, tune up's, spark plugs, all that good stuf. That's why I get so discouraged in putting money in car. I was thinking of throwin a Nitrous kit in it when I get home but I dont know, maybe I'll drop a down payment on this Eclipse GSX and call it a day!!!

17.1 sounds right for an auto civic with i/e. Was that on stock wheels though or 17's? Also how much did they weigh?. My g'f civic went [email protected] with i/h/muffler and with 17's that weighed 43lbs each with tires.

Well, i am a dsm person and honda person. I will take my turbo dsm over any honda, i can get.

Now the 5speed vs auto.. In an auto the times will be more consitant than a 5 speed would. I know the auto won't take the beating 5 speed can, but level 10 makes that a whole different story.

Levelten.com makes torque converters and transmissions for automatic cars. They claim to be bullet proof. Alot of auto mkiv supras use them.
