    '98 Hatch: LSV?

    Crashed it, lol. Hit a barrier on a 95 on ramp in the rain and bent the hell out of two wheels - it still runs and drives. Not sure if there’s any structural damage, but the car is 100% cosmetically. K swap is on hold until I can sort things out

    '98 Hatch: LSV?

    Picking up a rear disc conversion from a teggy on Friday. Gonna get cracking on that soon, hopefully. So far as the swap itself goes, there's a few ways to go about mounts- simplest is going with a k20, keeping the stock subframe, and buying the appropriate mounts. If I want more ground...

    '98 Hatch: LSV?

    '98 Hatch: LSV?

    Unmolested hatches are a rarity in my area, but one finally popped up for sale with only 100k miles and I snagged it. It's a factory manual coming from the south, so there's virtually no rust. So far as I can tell, for the money within my price range (3k for the swap), my best option is a LsV...

    Civic HX Swap

    Getting back into my swap car search, and was wondering if there's any reason to stay away from the HX trim- I remember reading something about that, but I'm not sure if I'm misremembering it. Planning to do a b-series swap with whatever car I end up getting, and there's a 5 speed '99 HX in my...

    Thanks for the advice. I got my uncle (mechanic) on board with this project, and he wants me to go K-series- I'm going to talk with him and get his take on what route I should go down.

    It is what it is- there was a manual out there but the title wasn't clean, and I wasn't dealing with that.
