Nice, a daily driver that can't survive another crash.

Ezekiel 25:17. The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.

A cool project, but that thing is like a moving death trap? He changed all the geometry of the car and the structure as well. Wouldn't it be more feasible to transplant the subaru drive train into the civic? It'd have an unaltered frame that way

It would have a VERY altered structure that way.
I've did a rear wheel drive conversion on a CRX, put a 300zx drivetrain into one its no easy task. There is plenty of questionable chassis mods to do so.
What he has done, if done right, can be a much safer way to do it. He hasn't altered the wheel base or suspension geometry, he's just fucked with the unibody structure. As long as he's reinforced all the needed areas then it could be fine but not road legal and I would never recommend driving it on the road.

from the look of his work, it doesn't look that safe at all, doesn't seem like he reinforced all the needed areas like you said.

on a side note, replacing some of that body work looks to be a bitch if he ever got into a fender bender.
