I'm pretty new to the car scene. Anything i can prepare for...instead of running into during the swap, and delaying the process.

well, when it comes to getting a new engine and trans. it doesnt hurt to get a new clutch and flywheel (doesnt have to be a pricy one, just a stock one wiill do.) also resurface the flywheel is a good idea. oh, you would also need the axels, im not sure if theyre different or not, but im sure a standard axel from a d series engine cant handle anything else.

It was a joke. I really don't understand this in forums. Why is it always a competition of sarcastic remarks and "my d*ck is bigger than yours" attitudes?

Because YOU come in with the "my dick is bigger than yours" attitude trying to mindlessly bash on Hondas. Pot, kettle, black?

It was a quote that I saw on another site and I thought it was funny. I apologize for any emotional harm caused to honda owners but I would like to clear up that I was not bashing them I was simply copying and pasting a quote that I found humorous. Also, hondas are known for their low torque but the high revs and the vtech engines compensate for it along with a lot of import cars attempting to compete with torquey muscles. I did not say they were slow. The quote itself only commented on the low torque commonly found in hondas. But still, I apologize. And don't you drive a mazda anyways?

Does me driving a Mazda make that quote any less ignorant? Didn't think so.

Im sorry I couldn't find the 1992 1.4 stats. These were for the 1.5s. But that is besides the point because the quote (which was not created by me but by some other "ignorant" person) was not directed at this man's particular honda. Yes the quote uses the words "your honda" but the word "your" is used to be directed at honda owners in general. And yes there are also hondas that put out more than 80-90 torque but there are also many that are at or below that mark.

Ignorant-
adjective 1. lacking in knowledge or training; unlearned: an ignorant man.
2. lacking knowledge or information as to a particular subject or fact: ignorant of quantum physics.
3. uninformed; unaware.
4. due to or showing lack of knowledge or training: an ignorant statement.

Because this quote has factual support..... well whatever....
