Honda powered focus

I may be getting a s2000 engine and tranny soon and was wondering if it would work in my 03 zx3, im tired of being restricted to 170whp, i want to go fast!!! and no i dont have 170whp but thats about all we can squeeze out of our cars without extensive mods and then it wouldnt even be fun to drive it would be cammin so hard

yeah sure it will work...

but by the time you get it to work, and all the money you would spend it to make it work, you could have built one hell of a turbo motor.

I'd agree. A V8 swap would be worth your time more than a motor out of an S2K.

To put this in perspective...

You work at Microsoft... on a Mac.
You own a Super Nintendo in the 90s... and you are playing Sonic the Hedgehog.
You are cheating on your wife... with a man.

honestly if you have the resources and know how to do it...do it...

you obviously will get grief for it now, but at the final product you will get droolers
i mean a RWD 9K revving engine will most certainly make me drool
