    Ok guys i have a 1987 honda civic GL with 88k original miles on it. Car runs great but I have no power at all and, I would like some atleast so i dont notice a huge change from my rx7. I searched but i havent found any swaps in to this style of car. I was looking to put a ls vtec turbo swap into it with a cable linkage tranny (believe i said it right). I wanted to see if anyone else had found out if the axles could be swapped, if i would have to bang in the firewall to make it fit, and lastly engine mounts for it b.c mine are both in not normal honda places. Thank you guys for the help here are some pics of her

    B series should fit, I would look up swap info for the 1st gen CRX. The swap should be very similar.

    I would contact Hasport, they make swap mounts, axles and wiring harnesses. They should be able to help you out with exactly is needed.

    Brake and suspension upgrades never hurt when your adding more power.
