Default Questions for the pros....

Hey was up peeps, i have the opportunity to buy a 98 civic ex and have a couple of questions. First its a 2 door automatic ex. What can i expect as far as performance. Is it a good platform to put your basic bolt ons? Im pretty sure its the 1.6 sohc v-tec motor right? I just want it for my daily driver and for a little show, not to swap the engine out and convert it to manual tranny, at least not yet. Any input on this vehicle is much appreciated, and thanks in advance, ed.

Question for the pros??

well if you are considering doing an auto-manual conversion down the road, why wouldnt you just get a manual when you get the car? since you are looking for performance, ill bet the same car, ones auto and ones manual, ill bet the manual will run 1 sec. faster in the quarter mile.

You'll have a hard time getting on the freeway... Get a manual from the get go. I wouldn't get an auto in anything less than an Accord V6.
