Buy ten 100 pound bags of cement and throw them inside the car. Hey, you said easiest.

To answer your question Carexpert, it depends on which honda you are getting. From what i know the K20a is the one used in the RSX correct? Which is a generally new engine, so i am not sure if it will fit in a older honda engine bay. But i have seen it done with previous generations of civics.

vwhobo, oh god that looks painful, what did you break in that incident? Probaly scratched the rear bumper lip too huh? Looks expensive to fix, in that picture your rear passenger door was not alligned with the drivers door. ahaha

the K20a is the JDM engine from the 2001+integra, 2001+integra type R, and some thing else too but it would be vtec so would it be hard to make the swap into a non vtec?
