I have a 2002 civic ex 5 speed d17a2 engine. Motor's fubared due to the 1oo plus n2o shot i had in it. (It dyno at 184hp 186trq) stage 2 cam the liitle thing was quick for sohc. I found a d17a2 in a 89 civic hatch. I'm gonna swap the motors then get rid of the 89 body. My Questions are Does the engine have to be pulled with the subframe and tranny from the bottom? Is it possible to pull the motor out from the top? The garage I'm using doesn't have a lift so with jackstands and an engine hoist it will be really difficult raising the car over the engine. Second question is what is the limits of the stock engine iternals for boost and for n2o? I'm trying to figure out if I can make 300 - 400 hp with fully built d17 turbo or n2o. I'd like n2o that would be my choice since it can be used when I want to. Last question is anybody interested in a 89 civic with no engine and tranny. Looks like it had a sunroof that was filled in poorly needs body work. I should pick it up in a couple of days I will post picks to this thread.
