    thanks

    I have some nice laptops that I usually sell on Ebay so I may end up trading him something here and there.

    Basically, I may end up getting this for 2k (my costs) I can part it out on e-bay and make my money back easily, or I can derice the exterior, clean it up, put about 5k into it and get it tuned right and the engine rebuilt/new clutch and rims.

    What would you guys do?

    :werd:. Ive been a few street meets and its always the riced out cars that are doing stupid shit. Especially Hondas, its like they are trying to prove their car isnt slow. If it was something else, Id say maybe. But to drive a modded honda, your looking at an abused car.
    On another note, you can never be sure the swap was done right. Ive been in some cars with swaps and the car never really ran right.

    Best thing to do. Find a local honda enthusiast club in your area, join their website forum, and part the entire thing out there. That way buyers can actually see the 'used' parts before they purchase them

    If you can part it out and make money, go for it. Don't buy it to keep; you'd be much better off finding a used, stock 4-door Integra, which costs less and has all the same (if not better) hardware with a far nicer interior.

    no.....



    It's way to rice. And it's hard to sell shit anymore. Everything is so damn cheap on ebay you can't make any good money. It would cost way to much money to make it look half way nice. And it would still be slow.

    i would never buy that car. all those "performance" parts wont really do much on a Integra LS motor (b18b, non-vtec). i know because i drive one, lol. he basically has a RACE ECU on a stock motor. only good thing on that car is the gsr tranny with short gear ratios.

    theres not much you can part on that car, no one will buy that junk.
    intake, header, and exhaust on that car arent really big modifications. i would pass on this car and look for another one..

    thats my .02

    ls motors are worth like 500 bucks even with blue valve covers.
