    It's been done in a CRX.

    It's too much work to be worth it.

    So if we would have told you that it was easy, you would have been able to do it? bottom line, if you don't know then you don't know.

    It may seem nasty, but everyone here is right. If you have to ask how to do a project like this, then you aren't ready for it.

    Hondaswaps the same, if you're not smart enough to understand that axles have to align, electrical has to be toyed with, and mounts need to be exact, then you're not ready for it. And swapping is easy compared to "Building your dreams"

    Anything is possible, but if its a good idea or not is different.
    Take your 350 and put it in a Chevette. It be will a lot easier.

    anything is possible
    its been done before so that means yes its possible
    can you do it? well... if you have to ask, then no you probably can't

    you're only 3 mounts, a 4 link and a lot of cutting/welding away from making it happen

    Well yeh, but I do not have a chevette. I just have the 91 honda civic shell without the motor under the hood. That's why. Also ma dad is 60 year old got no time to doing his project to be done.

    What u guys think ??

    We are all telling you that in the end it's not worth it so why are you still asking what we think? As with everyone I agree if you have to ask you are not ready to do it. I would get rid of the 350 and put something that fits and doesn't require that many modifications to go into the car. Or sell the car and buy something the engine fits into.

    well, it depends on what kind of frame you said you have sitting in the backyard. If you seriously wanted to do something like that, first understand that the car basically becomes worthless except to you, so make sure you never want to sell the car. Then, if you don't know how to weld, learn. Other than that it would probably be a fun little project if done right, but it would never be streetable, so you'd have to trailer that shit to a strip which is a PIA in my opinion.
