    Yeah you already have it in a civic del sol. It is the same as any other civic just make sure the civic you buy has the mpfi but I think they all are.

    If the shell's in good shape, then why are you swapping everything over to a different car? Del Sols are a little more rare then the average Civic...

    that and sol's are too heavy to race... If its in good shape I would ask for 1000-1500 or put a stock motor in it and sell it for more
