    I found a shop that will do the swap, they are specialist in honda swaps, the only thing Ill need is a hatch eg shell and they do all the work, but something has been bothering me, someone told me the lude engine weights too much for a civic, so you have to get a better susp, is that true?

    buying a shell just for a shop to do the swap...there is no love, sweat, or tears in that.

    well dude, u know.... I dont want to mess with those things, mainly bcuz I dont have xperience on that, Im hoping the shop lets me get involved in helping them do the swap, that way ill learn more about it and some day i might be able to do it all by myself

    Stock integra front springs would help, but I believe that Intrax makes springs designed for civics with a little extra weight up front; i.e. h22 swap.

    It's generally a good idea to have adjustable struts the driver side front will be heavier so idealy get some

    Why will the driver's front side specifically be heavier?

    the h swap weighs 60 lbs more than a b-swap.

    Yeah I guess. But then again, the transmission is going to add some weight on the other side. I'm just trying to figure out his logic here...
