Default Looking at buying this 2000 Civic Si

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...79986162847521

Check out the FB add above for details, but it's a 2000 Civic Si with a F20 swap and a P28 ECU, suspension work, stereo upgrades... It's a ricers dream.

Looking for feedback, thoughts, criticisms... Getting rid of my 2004 330xi with 200k+ on the clock. I *need* a stick car!

@10sec - please tag anyone else that could help!

Plan is to eventually throw a turbo on this car.

Taking my Dad too... @Eagle

i dunno these cars.

i'd submit looking into a miata for something cheap and fun in this price range. and if you wanna get wild with it later you can do a k swap into it, which local guys (volo) can help you do quickly - https://kmiata.com these cars fly and without all the associated stuff to deal with that comes with a turbo.

Miata's are ghey, don't get a Miata.

It's not an Si, it's an EX.

F20 swaps are good, has LSD, but no PS/AC? You are okay with that? People that do half ass swaps take out the AC/PS.

The body looks to be in nice condition, don't see any normal Honda cancer, so that's a plus and for $3k it's not way out of the ballpark for price, but I wouldn't pay more than $2200 for that (if I had to buy it).

Maybe he'll post some pics. I haven't gotten a chance to look it over yet, but it's definitely a manual Honda Civic coupe.

I got a chance to drive it tonight. It really does rev - but I was too skurd to take it to the rev limiter. I guess the car has a 2-step installed too...

Anyway, he's thrilled with it. Definitely needs some TLC, so that'll be good for him to get his hands dirty. The shell is pretty free of rust, but has had some body work done.

He's already plotting an ebay turbo kit at some point... but I think he wants to take it to RCAutowerks and have them tune the car as it sits right now.... which if you're asking me, it could probably use. It feels a little lazy here and there in the power band.

That's not bad, that swap was probably 2/3 of that price.

F20b.

F20C is an s2000 motor, people haven't tried swapping that motor into a Civic since the first guy that spent his life savings on a swap that nobody remembers.... OR cares about.

Not too ricey IMHO. Lose the spoiler and it'd be fairly respectable.

It doesn't even have a Motec system exhaust.

If I ever found a Mint RSX type S I'd snag it in a heartbeat. Super fun to drive hard.

It is, with an actual Si. But that one is a "clone" so it doesn't actually belong, but it's there.

Got the rear lights working... Seeing at it had no working rear facing lights when he bought the thing.

Also made a battery hold down... There was none.

Also added a new cone filter that @Bru gave me a long time ago for the TA.
