good luck cramming it in there!

look for a CVCC cause the engine bays are slightly larger. would be easier than a 1200..

Fitting isnt going to be hard by any means. Ive alreay done first gen swaps. It will happen, dont you worry about that!

The only thing holding me back right now is i cant drag home a new shell untill i get a new house. But with the 8k tax credit, i want to take advantage of means i'll be in a new house before spring!

So for now ill bust ass on the motor and getting it ready to drop in!

Not necessarily, most fwd drag cars will be about the same as this. So it will be perfectly stable enough for what its going to be used for. Sure it probably wont make a good autox/track car, but thats not what its being built for. So not a big deal in my book. The weight will help with traction in that straight line. which is my biggest issue. and weight doesnt mean nothing at a car show!

went with it for a couple reasons. They are super strong for one. and take to boost really well. they flow extremely well, and make power quite easy. even in stock form with a couple junk yard bolt ons you can be making 250hp for cheap as shit!! most expensive part would be your tune.

next reason, was it was free lol.

and last reason, was because no one has done a F series swap yet in 1st gen. Theres been zc's, d's, b's and even K's!!! i've yet to see an F. So im paving a new road!

I knew it must have been free from the pictures of the head :lol: But seriously, that car will be a blast. What are you going to do as far as suspension? Are you going t6o modify the strut tops to fit an accorde suspension in there?

since im thinking the whole front end is going to be tubed, it will get a custom coil over set up. I'll probably take it to the propper shop to help me figure out what spring rate and all that shit to get. Theres people out there that are professionals at that, and im not one of them lol.

ANd im getting really sick of people shit talking. i just finished my 67 camaro thats worth 5 times more than ANY of your finished civics. so you can blow me.
