    Hey all,

    My bud just picked up a 87 hatchback (carborated). He is thinking of throwing an LS in there because it's cheap, but is wanting some other imput. What do you guys reccomend? No V-TEC though......too expensive.

    I'd answer this myself but I dont know anything about that generation of Civic. Who makes mounts for this car?

    Thanks!

    Peace.

    Easiest and probably smartest swap would be a 1st gen Integra driveline. Engine, tranny, axles, hubs, brakes, and rear axle all bolt right in. No bullshit. Get a doner Integra (the whole car) for $300, and use all the crap to swap over to fuel injection. Then take all the money you saved from not buying that stupid ass B series and boost the Integra motor. 200 cheap HP in a 1600 lb. car. Yummy. I've done this exact process to a friends car, and it can be done in a weekend. Roll in both cars Friday afternoon, roll out a boosted 3rd gen hybrid Sunday night.
