    thanks for all the positive responds i've gotten from this forum. i had one [hopefully] last question regarding which swap for my civic. i was going to do the itr swap with installation for 4600 because i really wanted the lsd tranny that the c1 lacked and i aslo want to run 13's. but im also on a 5k limit for the swap so i wouldn't have much left over to do anything to my car. all i have currently is kudo coilovers, not even a chamber kit! i found a c1 comp. swap with lsd tranny for 3950 incl. installation. should i stick with the itr? if so what should i spend the left over $400 on? or should i go with the c1? and if so what should i spend the left over $1050 on? i want to be running 13's or very low 14's. thank u guys so much for helping me out and giving me ur oppinions.

    I would hold out until you have more money. Your not going to want a fresh swap in your car and 4 bald/flat tires. The wait will be worth it.

    I was in the low 14's with my LSD GSR swap. 14.113 @ 98 mph to be exact. With a sub-2-second 60 ft time I could have hit 13.9 easily. I say go for it and get a camber kit and some sticky rubber.

    ITR is a hell of a motor in a Civic. The GSR is nice, but the ITR rocks it, and I am a firm believer that it is worth the extra cash.

    consider doing it yourself. It really is not that hard, and will be cheaper in the long run.

    4100 is a steal for a legit ITR swap. go for it.

    The motor is an internally stock JDM GSR motor, LSD tranny. 10.6:1 compression is the only difference between USDM and JDM. SR intake and free flowing exhaust. 13's should not be hard to get with a good driver. Keep in mind it was a 97 degree day and I was @ about 2600 ft.

    hmotorsonline.com they have some good ass deals. so do u think it would be smarter to go with the gsr lsd swap for 3450 and use the 1500 left over to add some hp? sorry for asking so many questions and thanks for helping me out man

    You'll never be able to be as good as an ITR swap for that extra 1500. I say go for the ITR swap.

    Several people have run 13s in B16A hatchs, N/A at that, and with just bolts ons even. An ITR can get you into the 13's.
