probably a dumb question....

would a motor and tranny fit in the back of a '92 hatch with rear seats removed? and more importantly is it a good idea?

some folks in US swapped a six cylinder motor in a CRX or some 88-91 civic....it went in the rear of course. lots of $$$$ and resources invested.

When you have to do that emergency stop to keep from rear-ending the car in front of you, where will that engine go?

Worse, if you don't manage to successfully make that emergency stop and you do rear-end that car in front of you, where will that engine go.

I don't think we need to get into the mechanics of a t-bone or head-on crash.

Mythbusters did a little thing on how a Kleenex box could kill you if you get in a crash at (x) speed. (Can't remember, but it was maybe 40 or 50). ANYWAY, they over do it and the put a hatchet on the "rear deck" of their test car and the hatchet went THROUGH some ballistic gel and through the wood box that was holding the gel. Good luck if you get into an accident on your way home. Your head will fit nicely as the new CAI. Open your mouth wide so the K&N will fit!
