    you don't own this one lol, everything is breaking on it, who ever heard of a honda with 163000 miles where all the window motors were failing, electrical system is failing, random check engine lights for no reason, gauges are getting screwy, blower motor is going out, gauge lights failing, headlights fogged up, suspension wearing out, struts failing, ignition switch randomly cuts out (ok there's a recall on that) etc etc , it needs a ford emblem

    Re: D Series Swap...

    yeah that sounds uncharactersitically common for all honda's? blower motor problems are horribly common, ignition switch's have always been bad, the "random" CEL is probably some stupid obd2 code that pops up on occasion then clears itself, or is a consequence of the "failing electrical system."

    now the headlight thing really cheeses me off because they used fucking plastic. at least your motor will only spin the #1 bearing in another 20k or so... hahahahahhaha i crack me up.

    Re: D Series Swap...

    it would be worth it in my opinion but to each their own, for me it seems like most feasible swap for anything, like you said, they're on every god damn corner.

    Re: D Series Swap...

    yeah junkyard motor for the win, every 3g i've ever seen in a yard has had no body damage, meaning something happened with the motor, also most of them have 200+ on the odo and look to have been brutally fucked... he of course could rebuild it which isn't difficult just more time and money.

    Re: D Series Swap...

    just saying that i know of two people that have d-series for sale each within 30 minutes of my house.

    not kidding.

    and as stat1k said, each fucking 3gee in my local yard has almost no body damage.

    which leads me to believe the a-series are toast.

    Re: D Series Swap...

    only a compression test and visual inspection can tell you if the engine is bad or not...i dont think the d-swap would not be a bad idea for a daily driver...but when you are going to spend time and money why not go for an engine that has more power...for 350 you can get b serries mounts and just drop in a engine
