    Performance Upgrade Opinions - Honda

    I have aquired a 1994 Honda Civic (European) and had a few questions. Main questions, what would I need to make it US spec so I can ship it home. and where can I get these parts? Next question is, What are some good performance parts for the car for street racing? Any opnions would be great. thank you.

    no point in shipping a 1994 Honda Civic overseas. You will pay for shipping almost as much as the car is worth. There is also no point in tuning a 94civic. civic+shipping+performance parts+Making it us spec=the price of a decent street car. For the money you spend on the civic, just pick up a Subaru or something better already in your area.

    p.s. this isn't a civic tuning forum

    Sell it, and buy and MR2, 4rd Gen Celica, or Fiero so that you can build a Kit car.

    First thing you do when they unload it off the ship is drive it down past the 3rd boarding ramp and make a left turn, stop and get out, put a brick on the gas pedal, put it in gear, and send it into the ocean.. Then take the $1500 you would spend to make it US legal and use $500 of it to buy a 1994 Honda here.. ;D

    even if shipping is free registration is still killer, but either way id drop in a gsr motor engine code b18c1
    its a very easy swap, then i would boost 10 lbs. on it with arp head studs, rc injectors, and hondata s300, youll have low 12's to 11's in the quarter

    you could do all that for $3k just dont buy name brand when you dont need it.

    Always buy rc injectors and arp head studs and hondata, but a $100 ebay turbo boosts just as good as a 35r turbo it just dont last as long, but for $100 who cares lol
