    So it's "from JDM" huh? Well shit, it must be good stuff then!

    Anyway, this section of the forum is for questions regarding 2001+ Civics, so I'm moving this thread to the correct forum for you...

    I would stick with the d series, they are cheaper to replace, since it seems you like to blow up engines. Doesnt matter what engine you have, if you dont know how to drive, they will all blow up. Its actually somewhat difficult to blow an engine. How did this happen?

    If you have time and more importantly money you would like to invest into your project, go K20a. K stands for, killer motor. There is none better, in my opinion.
