This will piss alot of you Honda guys off....
I found this on eBaymotors, and thought I would post it to see what you
guys think about.
CRX project (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1988-CRX-with-Small-Block-Chevy-Project-FAS T_W0QQitemZ4573477865QQcategoryZ6255QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem)
Is it a good idea or bad idea? And why do you think so?
I think its awesome. Ive never seen anything like it done before.
:hi: I like it a lot, is it a 350 in there?
Yeah it is. I would have liked it better if it was 302 :laughing: :mrgreen: :thumbs:
Hey that is pretty cool. I like when people become unique and start puttin american engines into imports. I say it should be a 400 though.
How would that piss off anyone??
I love Hondas and their great products, but damn it's always nice to see something new and powerful. But yeah, I've actually seen a SBC into a CRX done before in person. Lots of fabrication and work but when it's done it's just sick!
That idea might be somewhat harder.... :ohcrap: Im sure its pretty hard to do right now too. Finding the right transmission to fit in it as well has a drivshaft, and rear axle.
I'd take it.
THATS saying something.
Well that response was expected from you :laughing:
I think its cool, i had a plan like that (still do) a few months ago (have a thread about it on here). Want(ed) to swap a 350 sbc into a '95 Civic Coupe but keep it stock looking.
potential beast but that auto needs to go
If I had to pick an import car to swap a V8 into, I would have to say it would be a 2002-05 Honda Accord or a Mitsubishi Eclipse. Seeing as how they have bigger engine bays.
I'm pissed off! :cussing: :fu: :cussing:
Nah not really :mrgreen: , I say get it, it's something different. :thumbs:
Seen it done already, in a CRX that can turn corners...
Very fast, and built for under $2000 total, including cost of the CRX.
I've always wanted to put a Chevy DZ302 in a '93-95 Civic Coupe, so it revs higher than the VTEC engine ones. ;)
Damn, how high does it rev?
In essentially stock form, the DZ 302 can rev to about 8000 rpm, and with a
couple cheap tweaks, I've seen daily driver DZ302 powered Camaros rev to
9000 rpm. I even built a 9000 rpm DZ302 clone (using a 327 block and 283
crank) for use in a Porsche 914 conversion.
Since teh average ricer and honda fan doesn't think a pushrod V8 can rev much, it'd be fun to build a mildly modded pushrod engine civic that revs higher than a mildly modded VTEC one.
Damn, imagine what that would sound like. :hi:
that CRX didn't piss me off the slightest, now i wanna get a CRX and a 350small block and make a phat honda.
i think it would haul with that v8
