    hello every one i am new here and new to honda's really the whole import world, i live in memphis and i am currently a chevorlet tech in southhaven. but to my question

    I drive a 86 camaro and gas prices are gettin to much to me since i drive 42 miles everyday.

    so what i am wantin is a 2dr civic or other honda. that comes with a good motor to mod. since i really aint wantin to do a motor swap, but if i have to i will. which engine is a good one to mod? i want to be able to run 13's to high 12's in the quarter. and still get like 35+ mpg if this is possibly,

    so my question is what honda is for me? what year and model etc etc

    thanks you p.s the camaro i mentioned earlier is forsale or trade if anyone is interested. pm me or email me at game_kid_tn@yahoo.com

    question is how much do you want to spend? what years are you looking at? you have a lot of options. gotta be a little more specific.

    interesting selection b. I would try to find something stock on the outside with more engine mods. it might be a little cheaper. that is a clean car though, just kinda spendy with the front end conversion.

    low 13's and 35 mpg is near impossible. pick one or the other.

    Werd I can't believe B picked a red car, but honestly I think it's pretty sick.
    I'd rock it.

    Wouldn't that put it on par with a LS swapped Civic? Its a decent starting point. And its dirt cheap, for now at least.
