I'll probably receive alot of hate for this, but who cares.
I have an EF9 (4th generation honda civic) hatch. I bought it because the frame was in really good condition, as in pretty much zero rust and no body damage whatsoever. The previous owner has already done the suspension so it handles really rigidly, which is good :P. And for some reason, I just love the look of the 4th gen hatch, I think its because I'm a 80/90's fanboy, so I love the look of boxy cars.
I am going to put the Japanese SiR b16a1 engine in it. That engine produces 160 hp, and I figure that much power in a little ef9 will be loads of fun. I figure the swap will only cost about $1500. To me, that is cheap for having an unique and fun car.
Anyway, once I'm done with the swap I plan to keep the body pretty much stock. It is already pretty low, but not ricer low, if you know what I mean lol. I want to keep it classy, not ricey.
Anyway, what are YOUR thoughts?
