    **First, Please keep the thread clean guys. Thats all I ask. No BS!**

    Yet another swap thread. :)

    Vehicles: 1990 CRX Si
    Current setup: Stock d16a6 (I bought it in a non-running unknown condition, blown head gasket, 4 bent valves, 2 bad rings.)
    Plans: Swap D16y7(out of the ek), d16y8 vtec head, Si Tranny, Greddy Turbo Kit, Body work.

    Vehicle: 1996 Civic EX
    Current: D16y7(Note: the d16y8 motor was replaced a year ago)
    Plans: Full K20A2 Type R Engine swap, Turbocharged later.

    My cousin just got back from the war in Afghanistan about a week ago seeking a challenge. So we spent roughly $10,000 two saturdays ago and had to order another $2,000 of overnight parts because of FAGGOT Thieves. Enough said.

    Random pics.

    very nice.

    now, do those mounts bolt on or do you actually have to weld them?

    Well the mounts dont require welding but the orignal mounting holes have to be drilled and tapped. Also in a couple of places some cutting or a BAH(big ass hammer) is required for the engine to be able to bolt up to the mounts due to its size.
