swapping a new engine

im buying a civic soon, i got a couple of question i want a 7th gen, because it has a digital odomoter, i dislike the one one the 6th gen, is it possible to put a new cluster in the 6th gen, also i am also wondering is b series engine preferably b16 or b18, will they fit in the 7th gen and 6th gen, and one last thing, will i be able to make a sedan civic a 10 second car?

correct me if im wrong, only K series, stock D17, and J series can fit in the 7th gen civics. 6th gen civics, also known as EKs, (coupe and sedan) will be able to fit B-s, D-s, K-s, H-s and J-s.

It is possible to make a 4 door move but its the way you build you're motor that makes it in the 10s. But first thing's first, get a motor in it.

wait. so let me get this straight. you're making your decisions on buying a car on the type of odometer it has? whether its digital or not, that shouldn't be you #1 decision maker. That's like saying you want to buy a certain house, but then again you don't want to because the walls are painted blue, not red.

To me, it sounds like you're still in high school.

You could make any car a "10 second car".

any engine can fit in any car with modifications. after all, one guy even put a s2k motor in his ae86 (not on this site).

and why only b16 or b18? there's also b20, a torque-y engine with lots of potential....

prolly still in high school, or flunked out from staying home and watching fast and the bicurious to often

a lot more then one guy have done the f20/23 swap into the GTS, in fact "one" guy took the F20 out of his Sk2 and put in a K24. But yeah with enough money and some skill any motor can be put into any car. Chevy even took a silverado and extended the front about a foot so they could stuff the Cadillac Cein 16 cylinder motor under the hood.

OP forget about B' series if your looking at a 01+ civic. Start reading up on the K20 head on a K24 block. Build that for boost and put some coin into the suspension (drag specific setup) and then you might be able to build a 10 second 4dr. You'll prolly wanna strip the interior to get there though so a 4dr might be pointless.

yea im still in high school lol, but its not based on odometer i was wondering if a cluster swap is possible, also the newer the chassis the longer it will last, reason im looking a for b series is because there are light, and i guess cheaper, im also playing to put a turbo when i swap the engine, like a 2k turbo

:facepalm:

just because the chassis is newer doesn't always mean it's going to last you longer....

cluster swaps are possible, but modification will have to be done. don't ask "how much". when you have cash in hand, you will know where to ask.

d series are even lighter than b's. and when built properly, they can handle even more boost than what you may think.

are you actually planning or are you dreaming of a turbo?

Op..do u self a favor prior to asking and use the search button on this forum.and any others u may be a member of. Hell even wiki and Google for that matter! Either way 9 times out of 10 the answers to the questions u have are there for u to find. All u have to do is look.

And do Ur research on things before u plan on doing them.
Having a ten second car won't happen overnight..isn't really practical for the street..or very appealing to the local boys in blue..

Just my 2

If you're looking for lightness, why are you starting with a 4door version of the 2nd heaviest civic chassis ever made?

If you want to make a 10 second car, get an eg hatch and gut it to it weighs around 2000lbs or less (only weighs abotu 2200lbs to start), then build a d-series (eagle rods and vitara pistons) and boost it. It'll go like heck, probably run high 12's low 13's and still be streetable.

I don't think you realize what it takes and costs to make a fwd car hit the 10's...

^^agreed and just to add the vx model of the eg hatch is the lightest I believe. But the stock motor is poop! I could probably crawl completely hammerd faster..
