    Default Need help for my good old civic 85

    Hi guys
    I have civic 85 for 10 yrs, now she needs some body work and engine repair. my bro told me to sell it and buy a coure, but i think she hardly can be sold with 100000 or 120000 with CNG, so i thought i better put some money on it like 150000 for colour, interior and suspension, im just wondering that despite have engine overhaul i shud go for b15 engine swap with all modification. Now my question is do u guys think is a good idea and from where i can get engine swap properly in khi also do u think budget is ok or not. I would be extremely grateful if u could give me ur precious advise thanx in advance.

    No one replied to you is not that you have a old car...... every one is sleeping at this moment....... wait till morning there be people who will answer you......

    Hmm i like the idea of rebuilding this car and 150000 are more than enough for this car i guess u can rebuild it easily.... and with the engine rebuild or swap and better suspension with coloour i feel this car will be better than small coure... i m not from Karachi so i cant tell u from where u can have a engine changed... Anyways Good Luck

    @ Asim

    Bro you are right that a civic is better than the small coure.... but I must warn you in advance that all the money which you are going to put in this project will go in vain if you try to sell this car after the overhaul..........this all project will take around 30-45 days min... so must plan for that...... I had also done a similar venture on mehran 91 but when i sold the car ...... those all ( paint job, interior change, better tyres, front and rear lamps change) things were never counted for......... so be carefull.........

    as for as the viability of the project is concerned it is very much possible and you will satisfied also.....

    so wish you good luck and word of advice.. do put in the orignal engine reletively newer condition because mods are usually couplled with vibrations and troubles......
    Flying is my passion.
