    i had a 96 civic 4door sedan just sitting around i paid 50 bucks for the car. and im a ford guy so i figured why not put a ford 302 into it. when i get done the engine will be stroked to a 347. i just started and had the motor and rearend all tied up to make sure it would fit. i just recently started making all the mounts. i lost the password to my other screen name so i made another. my other one was v8 civic. well here are a couple of pics off my old cell. will have more later. to prove that i am building one.lmao

    ok after writing all of this exactly how do i put the pics in here?

    that would explain why when i try to put a pic in here all is shows is a red X. lol well i am going to start making all the motor mounts and transmission mount probably today. just keep in mind im a no body in a small ass town i dont even have anything to work in my car is outside. and for a fuel tank im going to use a suburban tank. so far i only have 25 dollars into the project just buying sawzall blades and welding rods. i got a driveshaft out of a mustang and a rearend out of a mazda b4000 that fits beautiful. right now i have some 15X10 spoked rims in the back with some 295/50/r15 tires and they only stick out around 3 inches. the funny part is when im done i can still keep my back seat if i wanted to,lol . but for the exhaust i have some factory headers out of a lincoln mark VII facing backwards the exhaust will make a u turn and go right under the motor. i took the spindles ad switched sides putting the rack and pinion in the front. the entire engine will be in the engine bay. i can almost close my hood. i will also be using the oem rack and pinion. but once i make all the mounts and then cut up a dodge truck bed and hoods and trunks for sheet metal(i have alot of body parts) i will get to work on the interior.

    oh and in the pics is a mustang transmission but right now its has a e150 van transmission in it so right now it has a big heavy one. and i have no way to get ahold of a lift or anything we. just like i dont plan to spend over 500 dollars on this project and so far i doing good. i was almost about to put a 97 gt 4.6 with a t45 transmission in it with 412 hp but i didnt wanna spend the 300 to get it,lol plus it would have been a little harder to get in. wel getting off of here. wanna make fun of how i am working this thing out then have fun. have any questions feel free o ask. but just to let yall know. i got this far in 2 days,lol i am shooting to have it done and driving by the end of next week. think its possible?

    Oh yeah, I remember you. You're the mullet-swingin' redneck that called me a "Yankee". Maybe you hadn't heard yet, but Lee actually surrendered back in 1865. Just a little FYI for you.

    Have fun with your project...

    My instructor in college would love to see this. He is a HUGE ford man and is into these kinds of swaps. I'll be sure to show this to him.

    well worked on the drive shaft today. the mustang one was 1 inch to short. so my mazda b4000 rear section drive shaft is perfect so tomorrow i am going to put the mustang yoke on the mazda drive shaft. got some of the mounts planned out for the motor and the rack and pinion. as soon as i get some more work done i will take more pix. i have seen other swaps using chevy and i have seen them cut out way to much and spend to much and blow it way out of proportion. if i wanted to i have a 97 mustang gt 4.6 with a t45 transmission i could put in there if i wanted to but i would rather this 302. i am a ford man. i also have a 92 f150 swb flareside with the m5r2 transmission and a 347 stroker in it. its easy to build a 302 into a 347 stroker. well will try to have more pix tomorrow. to do something like this all you really need is an imagination, a sawzall, and some knowledge. when i get it done im going to weld the back doors shut from the inside and install a complete roll cage from the front to the back. to make sure i dont kill myself,haha. well good night people.

    Hmmm. You should stick to the fabricating and not the insulting. The fabricating it seems like you're good at. The insulting...not so much...
