I would've been really really happy if it was a hatchy or a coupe, but its not :(
Best part about the car is that it is in an awesome condition, smells new, believe me! Just been used as a second car/petrol saver to run errands and mantained by Futtaim all the way. One owner since new.
LoL, albertho you just can't have enough of Civics, can you! :P

Where will I find a B16B? How much would it cost to swap? Do I need to change the mounts?

2 B16B's were available at Mohd Ayoub in Sharjah. Also a K20A from a DC5 was available at the same place.

Swaps can range ... depends on where you get it done. 1000-3000dh depending on the place.

I might change the mounts, but I'm not willing to go through cutting, welding stuff.
1-3k is just labour charge or does that include the engine? :)

Hey man TNT i really liked your idea about the Ford Mustang :)
There are many civics out there man.
with a Civic ull just be another brick in the wall! Ford mustang is really different car for a project. :)
anyway best of luck for your project man (Y)
It would have been really nice to have a Coupe or a hatch in that price...
Theres a hatch grey colour manual with sports seats near my place, if u want i can enquire about the price.

the swap will be straight forward TNT!!! you wont have to weld, cut or drill any part of the chassis or body. all you need are the mounts that are readily available, and a garage that can do a good install with the wiring harness!!!
TNT you have good support on UB if you do this project, you got albertho which knows honda's inside out and can guide you through every aspect of the swap and modifying!!!
good luck bro :D

The DC5 K20a at Moh Ayoub was around 16,000dh :P
Hasport mounts, labour, etc etc ... all adds up man.

I'm confused! I don't wanna go the K-swap way.
What is the price of the B16B? Only engine.
Thanks for offering help Gopal! There is a silver hatch in my very own building too, and it is manual :) I'm just doing this because the person who is selling the car is my dad's co-worker and he wants to get rid of it quick. Plus, it is in a pretty good condition and a ridiculous price. One more reason is that I wanted to build a project car of my own and Civic seems to be a pretty good platform.
Don't worry, I haven't completely neglected the Stang project but I've just delayed it until I find one in a good condition for a good price (finding a 99-04 is tough in the first place, finding one that I like will be tougher :happy: )
