    It is a 95 accord lx 5spd. here is what the car has:
    -seized jdm h22a motor (ran fine with no problems until motor seized)
    -driver side mount has been shaved to save the hassle during the swap
    -usdm h22 injectors that were sent to rc for cleaning
    -usdm p13 ecu with all wires properly switched(i.e. pin a6 and pin a11)
    -new ngk spark plugs
    -new bosch platinum spark plug wires
    -brand new red cap optima battery

    body:
    -black widow side skirts, and black widow molded rear bumper. (minor crack on back right side, left side repaired and primered)
    -2 piece r33 front bumper (primered black)
    -carbon fiber momo shift knob
    -dual gauge pod with carbon fiber autometer a/f ratio gauge
    -tanabe hyper medallion exhaust
    -16" dronell d-power rims in great shape (no curb checks whatsoever) front tires have 95% rear tires have about 85% tread
    -adjustable coilovers
    -racing pedals
    -jaguar s style taillights
    -hornet alarm system (very sensitive)

    sorry about posting in the wrong forum. the only reason he is selling is becausehe is moving and can't afford to take the car with him. the paint job is only about 1.5 years old too. it is in gunmetal. thanks for the input guys, anything else? i really do appreciate it.

    It's alright for a fixer upper. But the cost of the engine is gonna set you back a bit, so don't pay running car prices.

    why did the motor seize???? if its water then that may mean the wiring may be shot and you will have a piece on your hands... build up a civic they are lite and you can get a wider selection of motors

    If you want to be fast your better off getting a lighter car -- like a HB or CRX.

    the factory motor, since it's not in demand, should be pretty reasonable, I would say like 1500 from a reputable place, complete
