    I am looking to buy a Sohc Vtec engine.
    I have an 88 Civic sedan that burns oil like nothing.
    For the time it would take me to do rings, it would be easier and cheaper to
    just drop in a new motor.
    I'd like to buy the engine and trans in one shot, but that is not a necessity.
    Pm me or post, Please!
    Thanks
    Chris

    But isn't it really hard to find aftermarket parts for the ZC?
    I think I read this on here somewhere...
    I know the D series Trannys work on ZC's, but will all D-series parts?
    And yes I know the car is fugly, thats why I like it.
    My girlfriend said she won't ride in it though...
    Good thing I have another car! (97 Dodge Stratus)
    :shrug2: I read up on my B-series stuff, but they are too damn expensive. I didn't read too much about D-series tech.
    I'm a student.(Read:Broke...) I want to do a swap in it because I like the car.
    Paid $200 for it. I like it because I did all the repair work to it myself.
    I had intended to fix the blown head gasket, and CV axles and resell it.
    But now it's gutted and awaiting a better motor.
    So if anyone has an extra lying around, hit me up.
    Oh yeah.
    Bump

    Oh and please don't label me like you label all of the other... :fr:
