hey what do you think about a f22 swap into an 88 civic?
ok is it even possible or have you ever heard of this swap before?
Yes, it is very much possible. It's done exactly the same as an H22 swap into your chassis, so read up on that for the specifics. Honestly I don't think it's worth it though. It's not a bolt-in kind of swap. You'd have to do some fabricating and buy expensive custom engine mounts. Also, it's a tight fit into the engine bay and it will add some weight to the front of your car. It's not really a daily-driver friendly type of thing.
If you're going to go through all of that trouble I'd at least do an H22 instead. Unless you're getting the motor for free and you can fabricate, I'd say it's not worth your time...
ok its because i rolled the accord and have the motor already but i am not going to spend that much time what is the biggest size motor that is bolt in ? i am trying to get max horsepower free breathing.
with out motor mounts..d16y8
ok how about with a kit? is a b16 a good idea ?
just depends on what you want power wise
enough to make it a threat to muscle cars
in the 1/4 mile or on the street
better go with a b18c
Or you could boost your stock D and make some decent power...
yeah but it needs a rebuild really bad and i dont want to spend the money on the peice of shit
You could swap in a newer one and boost. D-series engines are cheap as hell. Check out your local Craigslist, you can probably find at least one for sale...
