    Has anyone here ever actually seen one of these? The only one i have seen was a purpose built drag team car. I heard someone at one of the shops saying he was trying to copy someone who did this. is this crap?

    Steph Papadakis and Adum Saruwatari both run turbocharged NSX motors in their EP chassis Civics.

    **edit** Steph's NSX motor is mounted up front and Adam's motor is mounted behind him in the car. they have custom frames built for their cars so they can have those motors in the cars.

    Signal Auto has an FF NSX powered civic

    as far as putting one in your moms civic....not a chance in hell

    they had to make totally custom front controll arms and mounts, not to mention a custom radiator, fiberglass front , and motormounts

    Monster Garage? I highly doubt that they would take on a project like that.

    These guys did it with a CRX. They Mid- mounted it in the back and the car is totally streetable, and they sell the kit to complete the conversion. Go to the site and click on ' CR-NSX" It fuckin rules

    It's actually Madhavi motorsports, but i still can't find a site. That project sounds badd ass though. I actually thought about that, and how possible it might be when i had my Rex. I thought it might be cool to cut out the back of the cabin of a Del Sol, you know, the part right behind the seats. Then use that in the crx to block the cabin frm the engine bay behind you. But by that time it would probably just be better to try to mount the motor in the back of a Sol, since the fuckin trunk is bigger than the engine bay.
