    pretty much the senerio is that im buying this car on friday for $400 and it needs a clutch master cylinder...the guy had someone replace the engine for him and the guy who did the work did not tighten the engine down totally on the trans so theres like an 1/8 in gap the dude who owns the car has not driven it since the engine was replaced so i feel this is a good deal i can do all the work my self...

    The KA9 was not available in vtec but is 225hp. The J series vtec engines range in horsepower from 200hp to 305hp... I don't think anybody has ever done that swap though so unless you're a really good fabricator there would be next to no aftermarket hybrid support. 225 hp is pretty decent though. Is the drivetrain not salvageable that you have?

    Well, if he didn't run it with that gap, it's possible the tranny was just tightened down while the dowels were catching instead of slipping in. With this possibility, you might want to consider picking that car up! But while undoing the transmission for the re-alignment, I'd check the rest of the "mechanic's" work. Make sure everything in between has been tightened to spec. Sounds like you have a lead on what could potentially be a pretty nice daily driver or more!
