    maybe he is going to drive without a hood.

    why do people still try to be original. if original was the best idea, more people would be doing it. good luck with the build though.

    no actually i was either going to cut the hood or make a fiberglass one and leave a slot fot the intercooler..kinda like the wrx sti!

    and i just want to do this project to see if it can be done and how long it would take me...lol

    if all else fails i will just throw a side mount and make me a sleeper

    well, the boxer engine is set up differently than hondas. i have seen it done on nissans also. it's better to just do a custom front mount if you want extra cooling. i have mine on my nissan with short charge pipes rather than going down to the bumper.

    well the reason i might just run a side mount is cause i dont really want to put too much power to this motor since i am going to run it with stock rods and pistons...i am doing this on a 89 civic and i am doing a vtec head and maby a cam...i just want to make around like 200 with this thing just to see how far i can push it till i throw a rod or something...

    you'll make more power with a front mount.
