    dont do it. it is not worth it. along with the engine you will have to get a new tranny and rewire the whole fucking car.

    Dude, the SVT is gay. That is all.

    Don't butcher your Si. Sell that homoriffic motor and buy a turbo kit or some good cams.

    well i'm getting the whole front clip of the car free and plus i got stomped by a svt focus so thats why i wanted to do the swap. the focus did not beat me by a car or so it was more like a bus or a 18wheeler.

    That's sad. SVT's aren't that fast. Maybe you should sell the front clip and use that money to pay for driving school, because an Si should not lose by that much.

    you've got to be kidding me, I'll even take the warning for this one, You are a complete jackass, you do not deserve to drive a honda. If you want a fuckin SVT buy one Do NOT and I repeat DO NOT destroy the civic. Ford engines are not meant to be in hondas and vice versa.

    Now if your intereseted in some more power do a swap or turbo it, even supercharge it.

    That's what i was saying, dude. The Si is just as fast as the SVT, if a little slower. Meaning that if this guy could drive, he should keep up. I didn't mean to make the Si sound like a slow ass car.

    N00b: You were shifting at 5500??? And double clutching, huh?.... Do the world a favor and drown yourself in a toilet. And because of this experience you feel you need to put the ztec motor in your Si? Die. Jackass.

    If your serious than my bad, do not "double clutch" it will slow you down. Shift at redline as well
