    alright well i have a 92 civic buddle but off of a guy thats scraps cars. it has a b18c but honestly it doesnt have enough power or torqe for me. im not sure why but all b series engines have no torqe like yeah they can rev to 9000 rpm but who needs it over all they dont really do the job. so im going to rip it out and drop a nissan sr20det engine in it. im just wondering if anyone else has done it and if it can be done. also what im going to need or custom fabricate/make to make this engine work. also can the car even handle the power this engine will produce. thanks

    well all depends. how good are you at fabricating and troubleshooting? you will need to make motor mount brackets for sure. maybe even use the suspension from a nissan unless your going rear wheel drive like i am. but im putting a small block into my 96 civic. all in all its alot of work.

    what a downgrade?? just boost the b18c you have.. easier because you wont have to make custom mounts

    actually its not a downgrade. i have been reading forums allover about how people are doing this and people are doing that. im getting tired of people saying thats stupid. well thats not stupid to me. yea sure it would probably be easier to upgrade the motor in it. but what about the people who want a custom car something they can actually say they built it. i say go ahead with the sr20det i think it would be awesome. and yall can flame me i dont care i will just delete my account because i dont need anyone to tell me how stupid yall are by telling me what i should and shouldnt do. so have a nice day.

    Never swaped a Nissan or V8 into a Honda, but I get the feeling this thread will be a good read.

    I was just thinking the other day, if anyone has ever put a rwd SR20 in a rex. I think it would be pretty sweet...see some light as rex drifting the shit outta rx7's, 240's and all that shit. Outta the norm is always awesome. Well...not always, but most of the time.


    hmm...was it the CA18's that had both a fwd and a rwd version? or the SR20's?

    i wouldnt say downgrade. but definately a headache figuring everything out when all you could do is slap a nice sized turbo on it and have the same power (whp and tq) if not more with the proper setup. but thats just my .02

    i really dont care what you think. just the fact of this. look at it this way. is it your car he is wanting to convert. NO and yes i know this isnt my thread but if someone wants to build something this is bullshyt that everyone talks down on people like me putting a ford small block into a honda civic. yea its going to run its ass off and i will race anything you have or will build. so put it like this anytime you have to say something negative or mean just shut your ass up. im done with people like you so im outta here and i dont give a shyt who reads this. bye HATERS .....................................................................................hey bro good luck with your swap wish you the best of luck. i started my project less then a week ago and im almost done fabricating and welding.

    I hate people who do this...."Ha ha! I'm going to write an idiotic, inflammatory rant but don't bother responding to it, because I'm just going to delete my account and never come back here again! Ha ha!"

    Just shut the fuck up you idiot. You took the time to sign up for this site just so you could respond to this thread, so we both know you're going to come back and read this...
