Hi Guys,

Might go look at a civic that is for sale but the owner says that two things that do need to be replace is the exhaust recirculating valve and catalytic converter. Are these hard things to replace and repair?

Thanks,
John

CC, any good muffler shop will take care of that for you. The egr valve is something you can pick up from the parts store for cheap and replace yourself.

Matt - just added myself onto the frappr map. however, i do feel kind of awkward contacting people and asking them to keep an eye out for me. hopefully some see this post and is willing to do so.

On a side note, has anyone ever gotten a non-vx, like a CX, DX, or Si and swapped in a VX engine? And how hard would that be to do? Just wanting to find out just in case I come across a clean non-VX. I see shells being sold so once in a while and wonder if it would be too much of a task to drop in an engine.
im about to do that. i have an '88 crx si that im about to swap. the only thing is i don't want to mess up the si harness because i might want to go performance later and make my teggy a mpg queen. but all i have to do is buy another harness and send it in to rywire.com and they can do pretty much anything. the only difference between the trims is weight and commodities. the si i believe is the heaviest? and the hf the lightest. i'd try and find an hf if you want a straight gas saver without any commodities and a light chassis. i would deffinitely try and reinforce the structure of the car as it is a weak. as for the si i have, im going to strip it down to the bone and take out all sound deadening and put just the carpet and seats back. not much of a weight savings but every bit counts

wow, thanks for running that report for me. Just when I thought I found a clean VX for a low price, its got a salvage title, and its a CA emissions car. Not sure if it makes a difference being a CA emissions car.
thanks limerence

No worries. Glad I could help. Just goes to show that you can never really tell with pics. I encountered a similar problem this weekend. Guy contacted me that he has an excellent VX for sale. Drove 2.5 hours and I would say that its in fair condition. Started to disclose more info once I got there about all the mechanical issues.

But yeah, hopefully you can refund that plane ticket and buy me a nice xmas present. =)
