Ok, I would like to hear any suggestions with regards to a motor and tranny swap. The car is a 2004 EM2 Coupe. I believe it has a SOHC non-VTEC 1.7. It's an LX Canadian model... not sure if that helps. Criteria: -Low-End Torque -Solid midrange -Traction -Good Pull while in midrange -Get close to Eliminating wheel hop -Decent high range pull I know I'll have some suspension work ahead, but that's what a TEIN EDFC is for. I had heard from some that locating a type-r k20 is worth it.... is there such a motor? I had heard some cat say that a k24 type s setup is the way to go... oh, the other criteria is that it has to be compatible with a quiet exhaust. I was thinking of a WSII... heard it wasn't nasty and raspy The exhaust will have some custom bending so that it's a center-tip flushed into the bumper.... or maybe two small tips out the side^_^ Either way, I want to do this right the first time.
