Fast,
Anything is possible. How much money do you have? Good machine, welding, and fab shop in the backyard, right beside the body shop? Access to the electronics engineers and automotive engineers you'll be needing to recalibrate everything?

Anything is possible. Speed is money, how fast do you want to go?

Wow. You would have to completly chop up the entire front end for this. The motor is almost bigger then the car itself. It would cost a fortune as well unless you have everything Gunguy stated.

none my biz, but what kind of driveshafts you want to install along? you'll torque civic ones in no time. i have 5.3L vortec in my truck, ya know.
along with suspension upgrade, steering, etc.
well, the engine is not as large as the civic itself, but it's BIG. have you figured how much ballast you'll need to drop into the rear to keep it all balanced? along with rear suspension upgrade, of course...

might have been a cool sleeper though. beat it up on the outside, put some rust on, make sure it looks like junk, he-he. canceal engine noise, of course... tires will show, of course, got to have that grip...

yeah, for the effort and money, i'd rather get one of them modified I-Vtec engines with 600 ponies that'll fit right in. of course, suspension, fuel system, brakes, etc still have to be upgraded...
craigslist has those little beasts allready all done for moderate $$. get one of those.

hey Hot do you remember Wilson's VW down by Lexington?
he used to have a beatle with a blown 454 in it sitting inside his show room, and he took it to a few of the starbird shows there in OKC. back in the early 80's.

I would guess that the honda in the video had a custom built frame that they grafted the body to. not very streetable. but a real head turner.

life begins when the kids leave home and the dog dies.
