Only reason I DL'd em was that they were the only that showed a V-tec in my body style car that I could find, and, it sounded exactly like my teg when I'm wailing on it lol. I was duly impressed and wanted to tackle the swap until I realized I just dont have the time and equipment necessary to pull that kind of a swap off right now.

I dont know exactly, but the rough estimate would be about 10-15. Thats not alot in 7000K, but I dont really like beating up my car it makes me sad. As for the reaction they are absolutly hilarios some just give the thumbs up, but most people do the double look. Every person I have ever raced stopped and asked what I have.

I didnt think it was all that bad. Hell it looks driveable except for some lights.
That could easily be fixed with a good pull and new rear panel, hatch, bumper and lights. The hatch doesnt even look misaligned too much.
Still it sux it got hit so hard.

You are gonna need to do some research. Click on the picture of my engine for more info. As far as mounts innovative makes a set that will allow for a b-swap. Newer hydraulic GSR transmission will require a cable to Hydraulic conversion kit. Would be much easier to find a cable transmission, but the older cable GSR transmission are becoming more rare every day. Total cost will all depend on your setup, and how much work you can do yourself.

Now that I do not know. If it has to do with the rear mount, could be how close it is to the firewall. I had the same issue with my PRI mounts. Just had to move the breaklines up a bit.
