    no, bad idea... you're putting a motor that is like 11 years older into that car. look for B series motors instead.
    i'm sure physically it could be done, but so would not be worth it..

    yes it could work.


    it would be a really terrible idea. obd 0 not so great motor in to an obd2b chassis with WAY more potential than that old motor. look into B series. 99-00 Si motor or an LS or GSR swap would be much better suited.


    aftermarket support for zc's is limited, they really arent all that powerful, its still a d series (see: tranny sucking balls), and it is going to be very old. if you had an 88-91, i would say go for it... but your 00 civic deserves much better. it whimpers at night.... "please JORDAN23RYAN... give me a b series... boost me.... boooooost meeeeeeee"

    best of luck!

    Plus it's no more powerful than a D16Y8 that you probably already have in your car...
