I gotta question for anybody in the dallas area near harry hines.
i have a friend who is attempting to get his engine in his focus, swapped
out for V6 VTEC from a 96 prelude, is that even possible, or worth it? oh
btw he said there onlt gonna charge him 1250 for the convo and engine combined
08-27-2005, 11:37 PM
not even worth an answer.

you know what i'm a newb, and i'm going to ask newb question gawd, geez why don't you simply correct me in a calm kind manner instead of beating it into to me that it was a stupid question

if he wants a v6, then why not just grab one from a countour? there have been a few people who have done svt countour motor swaps. i think that would be more fitting and an easier install rather than installing a honda motor. i mean 1250 to swap a motor is cheap when it's going to be a one-off fabrication.

yea, unless you care for custom spindles, motor mounts and even more cash to be put on the table. do something easier like a 2.5 swap. same trans, better gearing. no change for the trans mount and suspension/spindles. also probably able to get a cheaper ecu.

It's not that it was a stupid question, yea a V6 swap would be cool. But don't bring a Honda into the situation. That is just wrong.

anybody know of someone in the dallas(or texas) area that does convos? i'd hate to drive all the way out to WV just to get the 2.5iver

dude...for all that money, why dont you tell your "friend" to just slap a turbo on the zetec and be done with it.
08-28-2005, 11:33 PM
cause the V6 Vtec would be 200-210 by itself the turbo'd zetec would be barely pushing 200
08-28-2005, 11:52 PM
200-200...or less then 170 to the wheels...thats easily attainable for less then the conversion with turbo.
08-29-2005, 12:16 AM
well thats fine and good, for my friend, with the zetec mtx, but not for me with the spi atx.
and even tho thats just 170 at the wheels, thats without a turbo. you keep obn encouraging me to mod when it just doesn't make since when i can aquire the raw power outright then mod it even higher
