which car to work on


Junior Member
hey all, i was just going to try to get some input as to which car i should work on. i have a 1997 civic lx 4 door and a 2005 civic lx coupe, both automatic transmission. i am looking to get somewhere around 170 - 200 hp. the 05 looks nicer, but could be more expensive. thanks for your help.

Sell em both and buy somethin lightwieght, then throw the rest of the money into the engine and suspension. Thats what i would do at least

prolly a lot more and cheaper parts for the 97 like u said.

wtf is with you and "type aRrrrg" y0? at least you have a point in this case.

itr swap and you're set... that will get you about 195 @ the crank but only about 165 at the wheels. which honestly wouldn't be all that fast in that tank. no offence. but a stock gsr + boost will get you some pretty good numbers what will scoot you along pretty well. but it will be a bit more work... but not a ton more $ than the ITR swap. maybe another 2k.
