I plan to swap out my motor one day in my (auto) LX :rolleyes:

Just would like to see the specs on motors and what would work with my 98 LX. Of course going to a manual and not going to settle for anything under 180hp before bolt-ons


I originally said 200hp, but not sure if that is realistic or not :confused: ...Just don't see a ponit in a swap to get 30hp :(

Thanks for any input on this!!

Yeah, I would at least like to race you :rolleyes: j/k!

I would like to ride and feel the difference. I'm most likely going back to Savannah after Spring Break. My brother and family are getting tired of me since no jobs are coming up. And it f**kin' sucks that I don't have no where to put my shit, but in the garage. There up at the crack of dawn making all kinds of noise and I just did not get any sleep last night, which was the first night I slept here :( I expect the same tonight and every M-F. I figure I will get there asses back on Saturday when I get up at 7:50 to be at work at 9. NO F**Kin' sleeping in!!!!!!

Later!

You could make more than 280 with a B20 Turbo.

it all depends on how much you want to spend...the b18c is going to be cheapest overall since they are more readily available and have lots of aftermarket parts...plus it will probably be the most reliable engine in the civic as well. since the 4 dr lx is about 200 pounds lighter than a gsr, you could very easily get to low 14s with a b18c with all bolts ons...

though is sheer power is what you want and the budget is unlimited...go with a stroked b20/vtec....or a stroked h22 (make it a 2.6 liter)...and then turbo away...
