Ok, I've had a lot of dumb and pricey ambitions, money isn't a problem for the most part. What I was think was AWD at first I've now decided RWD(easier and cheaper.) Now I'm thinking something even more crazy, my friend just did an engine swap in his 2004 civic si, from a K20A3 to a K20A... I want to put a 1.3L RX8 or 7 engine in my car, possibilities, and help? Would love input, I'm just optimstic, and think it makes for a good convo.


P.S.- why can't I post in powertrain?

Our cars are basically set up for the conversion there's room for the pumpkin and such, I actually posted below about AWD, and had ambitions for that till the price kept climbing, but a guy did research for me and found out that it would only cost about 6800.00 to do the conversion, I'm still doing research on it some more, I will make sure to post a thread on the whole thing to help others, including pics...

how you going to judge? I had the car bought for me basically(a present for joining the army..? IDK) but anyways, it's not hard to make my engine the same size as yours. Bore. But I can't tell you how much I miss my 7, that's why this conversion would bring back happy feelings in a RWD :)

There's enough room for the pumpkin... not really.

Enough room for the tranny to mount? Nope... room for the drive shaft to go through without cutting? Nope.

Room for the exhaust to exit under the passenger side without cutting? Nope.

Crossmember?

That sounds more than $6,800 already.

I can't account for what other people do or don't do bro, If I'm asking, and I get good support I will do it. And why didn't you like RWD?

Why not save the money on conversion and buy a FD instead, you can afford it by the time you are done.
