    Hey
    I got my new car today
    Its a 98 Honda Civic EX
    Its missing both fenders, tires, and front bumper.
    Its a theft recovery, so the steering column is broke and Im guessing the plastic and shit is turn out from under the wheel.
    The only bad part is that its an Automatic, but for 2400... thats a steal.
    Is the automatic going to be a problem with the swap at all?
    Any idea's what I should put in it as far as an engine swap? Im pumped now!
    Im also putting a body kit on it forsure!

    $2400 is pretty good,does it run?The auto to manual is some work,but you should be able to source all the part from a salvageyard for a pretty good price.Put a B18C1 in and off you go.

    You could do a auto LS swap pretty easy,but would be better served going through with a conversion IMO.If you convert it you shouldn't be able to tell when your done.

    the wing you were wondering about is a stock wing go to the dealership and you should be able to order one there.

    Convert to manual the auto is garbage. I will agree on the B18c swap as the strongest swap for your gen.

    The bumper on that car is the WW version of the everybuddy club.

    Stock look owns body kits

    :withstupid: buddy kits are intended to Coustimize your car but yet everyone does it so the most Coustimized car is a stock sleeper.
