Crate Engines for Geo Or Honda?
 
I've been wondering as of late, if there are any companies that make crate engines for Geo Metros, the Civic VX or the CRX HF.

crate engine? for honda? why are you looking to get? honda makes a lot of motors to choose from. and the used honda motor market is pretty large....

i don't think the demand for an HF engine is high enough for someone else to make them.

They are listed to buy at www.hondaautomotiveparts.com it's about 3k if my memory serves me right. If i were you i'd check car-part.com or go to junkyards where you pull it off yourself.

Yeah i know people who have switched out honda engines (for faster ones) they didnt have a hard time getting them. Never seen any creat engines tho

brand spanking new civic vx engine with head, and inerds directly from honda will cost you $3312.92
the block, and inerds, without a head costs $2387.39
compleat head $1422.19
I don't know of anyone making new, modified engines, or fake honda engines, and I'm not sure exactly what you meen by a crate engine...

Chevy makes a pretty sweet 502 crate that would be perfect for a little car like a CRX, VX, or Metro. Just a matter of fitting it in. :D

You can get a slightly used d15z1 (Civic VX) or d15b6 (Crx HF) for around $550 shipped to your door.

I was just inquring. By "crate engine", I was referring to a completely pre-packaged, newly built replacement engine, for a particularly older make and model. I wanted to determine if it was even a remote possibility.

How much does a new manual transmission go for?

A new transmission is around 1500 I think, but there's really no point, not when you can get free crx HF transmissions all day long. I would consider it a waste to buy either a new engine or transmission for a honda or geo.

Yeah...Geo Meto, "Pro Street". Now that would be the ultimate sleeper.
