    I am working on a drag project and i have a 1990 Civ DX hatch and its stripped and ready for a motor. I know this swap is very rare and very difficult but im going 2 spend much time it becuase its not a daily driver im going 2 fabricate my own mounts etc. If anyone has any tips or facts on this swap plz help. I got the motor from the bone yard and resealed it and put in JE pistons and its a new running motor but it has 2 b mounts longitudally so it will b quite difficult. It was dynoed in at 169 whp and 160 ft/lbs torque. PLZ PLZ HELP.. With the engine mounted this way it gives a perfect 60/40 front/rear weight distribution, perf for FWD.

    Don't think you will find much for a Vigor, just because it was not out for very long 92-95 i believe (32,000 made).
    Plus it's a 2.5, 5 cylinder.

    try this site to find stuff http://pw2.netcom.com/~gentile/Vigor/index.htm

    good luck with ths swap though, sounds like you will have to fabriacte more then just the mounts.
