Default Just a thought, c32a

Hey just a thought like the title says..

Flame if you want, i'm just curious to what people's opinion is..

My 2nd cousin is selling his 94 Acura Legend 6 speed and it has a c32a Type II motor. It's somehow similiar to the nsx motor but not as good..

Is there ever a c32a swap into a 97 GSR body?

Or was there ever a swap of the c32a into a 94 + integra?

Never in a DC chasis, but in a EG sedan they did it before. It was RWD also

I better give more explaination on the car..

Alright the car is riced out.. lol. according to my cousin. He had plans on turing it into a skyline r34.. I perfer stock look.

It would cost me too much to get it back to stock form because it has full body kit which i don't like and the back lights were changed...

So if I could save this car, I would save the engine

and that's why this thought came about..

Even if you could you'd spend way more money and effort then it would take to put a K motor in. The K has a lot more support from the aftermarket and is a better motor in general.

So in conclusion, it's better to just leave the motor intack since it has 74,917 mileage.. it's just the freaking outside that looks riced out that pisses me off.

Restoring is might cost as much as the K swap itself

Yeah that motor is a waste of time, you're cousin is a douchebag if he says he's gonna turn his car into a Skyline, and he believes himself.

Ignoring the physical possibility of this swap, you live in CA. It is illegal to swap an older engine into a newer chassis for street use.
