Is it wiser to buy a K20A first cause my dad and my friends say it gives me more of a choice to choose which car I want to put the motor in and is it wise to build the motor and tran up first before I buy the car? My friends and I are trying to figure out which car I will have issues with like the crx I will have to worry about it motor mounts and hood issues but its lighter I think?. I haven't found any issues with the EG yet everybody has done the swap haven't had probs. Whatever car I uses is for circut and drag racing and show. So what car in your oppinion is better and why? What kind of suspension should I use for the racing and the show and what size rim and why?

EG because you have alot of refrences to do it right

EF to just be coll and there isnt one running yet...


1. Just get a mount kit for the EF
2. find a carb hood and mod it soe it fits..
3. the suspension on the EF, ITR 5-lug with Tein
4. 15 or 16 inch because anything bigger is pointless

also i dont know how your gonna drag.. and autoxand show your car... ecspecially show... show to me is body kit wings TV's or do you mean just show off your car not to win trophies...

You need to slow down, stop making all these unessesary threads BIG_EP3HATCH.

JUST THINK ABOUT GETTING THE CAR YOU DON'T HAVE YET, and LEARN HOW TO DRIVE A MANUAL TRANSMISSION.

Is that a good idea to buy the motor and tranny first and mildly mod them before I buy the EG?

ok, now I will have to convince my parents to let me buy the civic know where to put it! cars at my house: 96 contour, 2 V8 ford pintos soon to run 10s, 97 ford F250, 04 Elantra, 03 Lancer and 1 travel trailer. Dad won't let me put it in the garage. so I guess I will have to pay and put it in a storage unit. so that sucks for me unless or If my nice neigbor will let me park it next to his black 454 SS chevelle(high school car) in his 8 car garage. so I hope and wish me luck so I won't post pointless threads and ask real qeustions. pp

Peace
