    I Have 2 civic the white one is an automatic that I bought for 300$ it runs good and drives llike new but my main question for you guys is should I fix this up or try to fix my black one in which is 96 dx but it was rolled once and the roof is crunched .
    I Just bought the car as a parts car but the car still runs and drive just fine besides the door don't close also it s a manualll 5 speed. Should I go do 5 speed conversion on my 99 or try to fix the 96?

    For your first post its always easier to ask and have the answers handed to rather then to use that happy lil spy glass lookin thingy... you know how to post pics i have all the faith in you to find the info and over a weekend make the swap happen. Post some pics of progress and we will be happy to guide you along if issues arise..

    I say fix the auto and then do an auto-to-manual swap on it. Second option a Camaro. No Cavalier, though!

    Haha, they will go away. I had an entire mouse nest in my intake manifold after letting it sit for an entire year.

    another update I was offered 500$ for both vehicles and sold them than I bought 2005 cavalier. I needed something more reliable and part of a Chevy family also I got a ls1 out of a truck at the junk yard for 300 bucks so I will drop that in after rebuild.

    WP_20171206_15_23_37_Pro.jpg got the engine out , shift linkage , pedals and ecu out of the donor car.
    this motor is built with eagle rods and it was turboed at one point I believe it's not the original ecu and has jumper on it so it has a tuned on it.
    so i will do a straight swap to save time on swaping fly wheel and clutch plates. Should be done in 3 days I still have to take the other engine out than put the other in.

Talk about bad luck with this car lol.
    I also use the donor car door but it doesn't line up very well is it cause 96 and 99 are different?
    starting the engine every time sounds like a Subaru after a few seconds or so all four cylinder fires up but during start up it running on 1 or 2 cylinder only for like 20 seconds any ideas?.

    My info was correct, so I'll keep kicking rocks here.
    This all coming from someone who claimed they had "experience", but who wanted to argue over a textbook head gasket issue, couldn't decide what car to keep and work on and ends up buying the wrong body parts, then asks about it. Yup, I think you got it backwards.
    I thought you left anyway....empty promises.:roll:
