Man thats awesome :D:D:D

Have you got any more pictures of the mounting of the engine? DId you have to cut/think down the chassis rails at all or does it squeeze in there?

Great work man, that thing is a beast!

You might have a few orders for engine mounts from people with similar plans now. What about drive shafts etc?

Think this will give some hope to those with similar plans! well done!
The awesome exhaust manifold is a fresh change from a massive fmic!

First of all thanks for all kind words.

Now about the swap, D-series engines are ideal for this chassis. They fit without any cutting, you only need to make side mounting and at the back you are using city "mounting shaft" and modified D-series rear engine bracket.
Things you need too make:
- axles -combo form City and civic axels
- custom manifold (typical D-series mani doesn't fit, not enough space)
- minor changes on shaft for shifter
- custom made radiator (no space for typical city/civic radiator)
- custom made header
- all civic wire installation
and this all :wink:

some more pics:

Awesome fit
What about behind the front seats (direct rear wheel drive) As it is, you wouldn't want to run into anything pre 1990 tho.
Ok to run up the end of late model Commodore or Ford , just melt yor way in there , probly as good as an airbag .

that thing would be a little scarey but fun.
Have you thought of turboing it? May have to brace the front frame as it may rip it off :shock:
