He just bolted it on. poor kid he totaled a brand new Civic he had just gotten. I tried to tell him but he refused to listen. Anytime you go to supercharge and/or turbocharge something you pretty much have to build the engine from the ground up with that in mind.
Lol buddy bought a 95 honda civic ex coupe for that reason. The EX has a lower compression, an I believe Axiom in Tacoma, WA makes a computer for that set up that is a custom tune. But the kid that had it wanted 25 lbs of boost and no tune worth a damn, some ebay special crap. So he detonated on the track at 98 mph caused contact with the valve and shit a rod out the side after he blew the timing belt. So buddy bought the car as is. I borrowed a truck and towed it home. We got another wrecked civic with the EX, pulled the engine swapped it in and got the ECU for it, as well as the needed injectors, boost controller, etc etc. Now it runs boost at almost any level, and it runs 12.8 easy quarter miles with full interior, cage and stereo lol These kids are dumb!!!

This was a PROSTREET Mustang (1995 model). That's what we did with it. Basicly we went way, way over bore and repaired it is what we did or rather the machine shop did.
oh ok, i thought you were talking about a factory block or at least a aftermarket block with factory bore spacing, and i thought you were talking about a regular dry sump system with the tank under the hood, sorry i doubted you just didnt know the whole story, and that sucks that it blew up though, i wouldnt do that again either

That's no biggie man. That was an expensive, but good learning exp. Basicly on the street the maximun bore i'd do is .1000. That was an evil drag car. The first run was 9.75 in quarter mile. The second run was a full second faster. Then it blew up.

You got that right. All that dumb kid had to do was go to a salvage yard and get a motor. Then have a machine shop rebuild it from the ground up and swap them out. Kid just threw away a decent set of wheels that's super easy to get parts for and could've turned it into a street rod that was decent. Kids are beyond dumb in my book.

Lol age is a state of mind, not a number. All it takes is experience or knowledge, both of which lead to wisdom. I know the kids are smart enough to understand what is happening, it's whether or not they care to do anything worth a damn to learn it and get the right parts, the world won't give you a free lunch. Work your ass off and you get a bigger lunch then everyone else.

I know, but it's obvious that he didn't care dude. I see a car with no engine and I think of options and how to build and design a custom ride. With a Honda Civic that's alot of thinking because there's been so many different things done that it's not funny anymore. American Muscle in a civic is feasable, but is it practical and safe? If not how can I make it safer than it is and handle like a dream? How fast do I want it? that sort of shit you know. But that kid said the engine's bad time for another car. That kid you mentioned just doesn't get it or give a damn. Hotrodding has been around for well over 100 years now (pretty much since the first car came out). And these kids today just don't give shit.

learn alot and do it yourself im 19 and ive rebuilt the front end of my ranger twice (once when i bought it and again after i got in an accident) and it would just get a 302 and save the money from buying a whole new block and spend it on a stroke kit some new heads a good intake and cam and a good carb and have a decent amount of cash for a transmission , as far as the engine mounts you can buy to put a 5.0 in a ranger as far as i know they are made for v6 engines so im not sure how well a 4 banger mount would work with that
