I found a shop that will do the swap, they are specialist in honda swaps, the only thing Ill need is a hatch eg shell and they do all the work, but something has been bothering me, someone told me the lude engine weights too much for a civic, so you have to get a better susp, is that true?

buying a shell just for a shop to do the swap...there is no love, sweat, or tears in that.

well dude, u know.... I dont want to mess with those things, mainly bcuz I dont have xperience on that, Im hoping the shop lets me get involved in helping them do the swap, that way ill learn more about it and some day i might be able to do it all by myself

Stock integra front springs would help, but I believe that Intrax makes springs designed for civics with a little extra weight up front; i.e. h22 swap.

It's generally a good idea to have adjustable struts the driver side front will be heavier so idealy get some

Why will the driver's front side specifically be heavier?

because of the driver and the steering collum lol. im guessing

Yeah I guess. But then again, the transmission is going to add some weight on the other side. I'm just trying to figure out his logic here...
