Hey guys this is my first time posting here but am an Avid User on H-T. How is the clearence with you guys with Swaps into your EGs of the Oilpan compared to your original Clearence on your b series swaps or your D series motors? I have a 93 hatch and its slammed with a D series in it. I would probably plan to keep it that way if i went with a k series swap in the future. If not i might go with another car in the honda family if the clearence is god awful. Thanks for hearing me out.

I have about 3.5 to 4 inches of clearance on my oilpan and already put a hole in one oilpan. Keep in mind I live in san francisco and drive the car daily. I just came too fast over a crest and bottomed the oilpan. But the ground clearance is fine if you drive on normal streets. san fran was the worst streets

With that said, how low is your car?
There is about a 1 finger gap in the wheel wells.

eg with 15 inch rims

driving is perfectly fine. Its the going up and down san francisco hills that kills the motor. Plus the roads suck as well.

nice ride bro. i noticed alot of people have those hood lift bushings or whatever they are. just wondered if you had to do that for clearance, because mine sits fine without hood lifts.
No I did it because the motor puts out so much heat(since the header is so close to the firewall) that the needed a way to dissipate the heat. It made a difference.

Plus I am a ricer :wink:

I need to custom make a heat shield for the header. It gets really warm inside the car on hot days(not like there is many of those in san fran). Either that or wrap the header.

I am used to it though

Very nice. The only thing im scared of is if i go K swapped lowering will not be good. I will probably drop the car so all the wheels are tucked. Now thats a scary thought.
