Ok fellas... first post on this site... To give a little background I am into 4x4's and bikes so "tuner" cars are a little new to me. I just bought 2 91 Civic Hatchbacks as I wanted a car for better fuel economy. I have to say I am impressed with that. One of the cars I am using daily, but the other came with no engine, lowered 2 inches with coil overs and a couple other little things. I was a little apprehensive about these at first.. and you can see why: My Truck vs My Honda Ok anyway... as I drive this thing I find it is pretty fun.. to the point now I wanna build the second one. Mine has a 1.5 liter dual point with the 4 speed so it is kinda slow... but I know these cars can become hybrids and built. I have a transmission that came from a 92 Integra GS-R that came from the guy that used to own this car and he said they were pretty sought after... but now I am wondering what motor to use... I have done some reading and realize there are many options and it can get quite confusing. Reading pissedoffsol's technical posts give some good info but still not sure what I am looking to purchase in terms of motor. This car will be strictly a street car just for use as a toy so 8 second quater miles doesnt mean to much to me. In his articles I saw what swaps were recomended but really have not seen what would be best as far as hp, torque etc. Also in doing reading the Vtec s are in a class of their own, and which is right which is wrong, what do I need to look out for etc. I want something where replacement parts are easy to come by (go to Autozone and get a waterpump type thing) and also will give some of the high HP domestics a run for their money... maybe even put a turbo or supercharger on it at a later date. Anyway any help would be greatly appreciated... Thanks in advance.
