As the title says really i have the chance to purchase a 1600 sport civic I know the car and it's current owner and was wondering would it be possible to use this engine in my z cars road frame. I know there would be a considerable difference in power compared to the type R but this would obviously be a complete car with all the ancillaries looms ecu etc. The reason I am considering this option is basically cost (I would be getting the car for next to nothing) and the fact it would speed up my build no end. Also there is nothing to say I couldn't fit a type r at some point in the future when funds allow thoughts anybody

I have a B16 Zcars conversion.
They only made this frame for a little while as the gear linkage is a bit tricky.
On the other hand you have quite a bit of space to mount a turbo or supercharger to compensate the power to the K20.
Best is to try and contact Zcars....
If that doesn't work you can always think about placing the engine in the front.

K20 enigine is totally different to the B16 enigine.... That will not work!
Maybe you could change the engine mounts but I would go that way.... even the exhaust manifold is on the other side of the engine....
Just go for the K20.

Break the civic, you will be surprised what you can get if you have the time to do it
Fund it for the k20, job done
