    Pics of 97 civic swap/rebuild part 1 almost done

    Well, I bought the car for $100 with only half and engine and no tail lights and alot of wiring that needed fixing. I am almost done with the car for part 1. I just need to paint it and and install the body kit. part 2 will start once my new engine shows from Japan(b18b OBD2). Then I can install my turbo kit and brian crower turbo cams and valve train. here are the pics so far.

    This what I started with.

    Very nice job on the swap man! :thumbsup: The engine bay cleaned up very nicely!

    Not a huge fan of the tail lights, but to each his own...

    I used the stock one from the integra. Buy a book called honda swap. It covers everything needed to d the swap. Oh, and yes it is non-vtec. I am going turbo so no need for the vtec.
