OK, here is my idea. I am 17 and I am getting a job soon that pays $1000 a week and I plan on getting a 1994 Integra GSR for a while, then buying a 1995 Civic EX and a k20a2 motor at the same time. Then I am going to swap the b18 into the civic and the k20a2 in the integra. I will be selling the d15 for extra cash. Please tell me if this sounds like a retarded idea. Btw, the civic is for my friend and I (mainly him since he is such a good friend) Thanks.

I wouldnt do that.

Have you ever swapped a motor before? It's a lot of work, dont go through with it unless you can finish it. Most people will stop in the middle and call a mechanic and it'll be even more money.. so if you havent swapped motors before.. dont try it with a plan like this.

I would just get the GSR and keep it like that... then save some money and later on get the civic and the k20a. Keep the GSR for the daily driver. :)

I agree with Correll. In the long run you are going to loose a lot of money.

When you have a $3000 car and put a $3000 engine for example, that doesn't equal $6000 value. At least this rule stands for b series hybrids. That is why it is smart sometimes to buy a car that has already been swapped.

For k series hybrids, it is different. I still have not seen a single one sold yet, because the owners are asking what the car is worth in parts.... which is a lot.

well on top of my good job, my dad said he will back me up with it cuz he just inherited over $800,000 cuz his parents died and he was the only child. But he doesn't want me having a supra or rx-7 or anything cuz he said i am just too young. But ya, i have swapped two B16's before and my friend has done over 15.

damn, then buy k20a.org then off me :) take me out of my misery [email protected][email protected]@@@ lol

Seriously though, if you can affford it, don't mess around with D and B, go K. A clean integra shell with everyhting goes for $2500-$3000. Get the k20a for $5500 +$3000 of quality parts and you got one hell of a car.

Why don't you turbo your GS-R and save time, forget about the CX
B18 and 16's are very durable engines better then H22's

Hey its me!!!! Remember? your long lost friend! Do I get a car too? O yea and can you hook me up wit a job where you work. lol.

seriously i guess theres nothing really wrong with your plan as long as you realize it could be much simpler by just swapping one car. I like the k20a2 into tegi idea. I am planning on doing the same thing but unfortunately some guys are age dont make $1000 a week and may have to think twice to make sure its affordable. But either way good luck.


P.s. dont forget to ask your dad to adopt me.
