So the subframe is bolted in by the front holes! Too bad it's gonna need about a 1" shim for the rear to sit level, oh well more fabwork for me.

Yesterday was like Christmas..hehe...brand new never used, got them for $400 total. Still in boxes and still in the plastic wrap inside their boxes. Can't wait to get some springs and install these bad boys.

You getting the RB's? Right on man.

I e-mailed that site about the Tanabe springs. They said in return that yes the Tanabe springs definatly are for an FC, so I will more then likely be getting those springs for my car. Should be wicked if I can get them.

im just wondering if any one can tell me what the diffrence between an N/A FC and an N/A FD would b. just the engines. becaues im looking into getting an FD but their too expensive if i want a running one. so i figured if i could then pick up and engine from an FC thats got proublems with its body and drop it in the FD's body.i figure i can save at least 5 grand. plus im almost 18 so i know that a running FD even if its N/A would b way too much power for me. no it wouldnt b my first car. an i know i have to pay alot more attention to rotaries than a conventional engine. but theres just something about them.dont get me wrong. i plan to have **AT LEAST** the turbo FD engine if not the Twin turbo eventually.

OR
AGREED.


btw, being 18 how r u able to afford an FD? pretty expensive to buy and then to get them running at optimal rate will put u out some more cash. just wonderin.

u state in ur original post that u would buy an FD then buy an FC with a bad body and switch the motor in. buy doing this u say u could save urself 5 g's. buying 2 cars, switching motor in, tuning it and whatnot -- really think this the cheaper route (if it is a route at all)? better off to just buy the FD and then get a new engine built or whatever.

Appearently you also know shit all about searching the internet.
What could have been a reasonably non-idiotic question was instead turned into a really fucking stupid statement.
There were No N/A FDs. There were no single turbo FDs. Most people convert the FD to single turbo because it makes more power, the stock twin set-up is built for streetability and not much else.
Judging from your post I'd recommend that you buy a civic, mount a huge wing on it, slam it, gets some chrome 17s and call it a day.

Cheers,

first off i dont care for civics. and a front wheel drive car with a wing makes me sick. it was just an idea. im not all that knolagable about cars (especially rotaries) and im not all that rich. it was meant to b a project car for me and my dad to work on. im trying to learn what i can. and i didnt search before i posted what i did.although i should have. and as said before "it was an IDEA."
