Welcome to Gassavers. You should talk to Matt Timion. He has a Honda Civic he has installed a VX engine and transmission in a car he calls Frankencivic.

Welcome...btw what kind of mileage do you get with the 'Teg?

JK

I assume it's spec'd for racing?

There are lots of VX folks around and Honda techies that can chime-in.

Best of luck in the search...

Id' be very interested to follow your project. We have a 1991 CRX HF that still runs great so I cannot justify having someone put a VX engine in it, but for the future this seems like an awsome option. be sure to take pics every step of the way and share them with us! You'll have a faithful reader in me

thanks you guys for all the support and all the help! well i located a local D15Z1 with approx 100,000 miles. includes tranny and ecu. all for $300, all i need to find now is the axles, shift linkage, shifter, and modify my harness. shouldn't be too hard. o and yea my teggy (minerva) is tuned a little more for performance and looks. roughly i get 18-20 mpg depending on how i drive, less when i floor it.... so yea im looking forward to 40-50 mpg's and saving a buttload on gas!! lol! i'll start up my build thread and take as many pics as i can and keep you guys up to date. i just want to get everything together first as to not start on and off. if you guys have any tips or suggestions hit me up! and if you don't find me on here im on myjdmgen.com screen name is (El Professor Hekki). once again thanks for all the support and positive feedback!
