Me and my 'crew' are contemplating our next 'why do you want to do that' engine swap. I have that '77 Civic Station Wagon, and my brother has a JDM b16 engine...which would be kinda cool, 160hp or so, revs to 9 grand or so (I think). All in a crap brown wagon the size of a Tonka truck. We were also thinking about putting a V8 into a Chevette...its been done a lot, so it shouldn't be that hard or take too much work....best of all, it would be pretty cheap.

any other ideas? We want something that, when people realize what is under the hood, will say something to the effect of 'what the hell is wrong with you guys?', or maybe even 'you guys are idiots, why would anyone wnat to do that'.

Plus cheap. Cheap is good. So no Rover engines, and we also we don't wanna do rotary (just because)

I live for that shit :)

i'd buy that for a dollar!

... put two m10's in line and make a inline 8...

slight mods needed at firewall end. : )

make a 4 wheel drive 02.

make a station wagon 02. yeah, it's been done, but do it again.

convert an m10 motor to honda prestodigimagic fuel injection.

no matter what you do, take the ol brow civic and put wood grain shelf paper down the sides (or wood grain rally stripes)

above all else, have fun.

You know, I've thought about that before... I have two extra engines that are doing nothing and I've thought about how cool it would be to weld up some kind of go-cart type thing with two engines.

Go a step further... behind the two engines, put two transmissions - but put one in the wrong direction. You would have a nice 16-speed selection of gear ratios - 4:1 to 1:4 (but some would be the same). Think of how fast that gocart would go....

b16 in a civic wagon>> pretty good swap (little to no fabrication). you're gonna have to source some axles and other things though. I had a b16 in my civic hb. VERY fun to drive (although not the fastest car on my block -kinda like my '02:). I've even put a 2.2ltr prelude motor into an older hb 13.4 .25 mile on street tires.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
