just use a pick up, or mini van with rear seats removed. why go rent something when you can just ask one of your friends?

Either or really, can't beat the $20 home depot van though.

During a free parts day @ standard auto wreckers i saw a complete b18b eng/trans stuffed into the truck of an EK coupe so anything is possible. Talk about tight fit though.

^^ - all my motors (3) have gone in the back of my civic.
It can fit in a hatch no problem - coup - just put it on the back seat.

**just remember to put a tarp down**

and then when you go to return the van, take back the plywood and tell them you dont need it anymore because your friend is already at your house with some.
