    heh what time would this be? I would like to watch. TNN is cool but they are sponsored by apc! :( and talk about how to make a ford focus cool looking with fake carbonfiber and whatnot.

    It was on Horsepower TV which is a decent show, but the Civic they are doing the swap in is a riced out piece of shit. I am just waiting for Trucks to come on.

    Actually from what I have heard they are not bad for inexpensive headers, I think that they are made by Headman.
    That car is ugly as fuck though.

    I saw that show too. Thuoght it was pretty cool, seems how they usually work on muscle cars.]

    About the hood closing, is it really that BIG of a factor when doing a swap???

    humor me I'm very new at this stuff!

    I taped the show. I'm working on getting the footage on my computer so I can post it. I let one my buddies borrow the tape last night but I should have it back by tomorrow.

    i thought that show was pretty gay, its cool that they are doing the swap but they said almost nothing about the mounts, or running the wires for vtec, and that car is riced out like whoa haha

    u gotta figure they did everything in a 30min w/ commercials.. and misc "check out these parts" segments. so there was about 15 mins of doing the actual swap. i agree it was gay.. but i think that is because we are looking for details.. i think the main objective of the show was to show the people that dont know about engine swaps that its possible. What i love is they poured all this money into the D-series pos.. naaawwss, ignition, headers, intake, etc.. dynoed it.. just to rip it all out and do a gsr swap and get more hp then the modded d motor

    They should stick to mullet mobiles. You can tell that the hosts really are not into the civic project. Unfortunately rice sells.
