SRT-4 Civic? Say it isn’t so……


Civics are funny cars.

Most will garner negative responses from people, the occasional “ricer” or other obligatory insult, usually uttered by those ignorant of Honda’s rich racing tradition or what Honda has done for automotive enthusiasts for the last 2 decades.

But they are also some of the coolest machines on the road ( well, at least for me ) and I for one love Hondas for their cheap price, light weight and an excellent choice of modifications.

So it’s not everyday when I see a motor swap in a Civic that makes me scratch my head. And that’s what makes this Civic so special?

Yes, that’s a SRT-4 engine stuffed into a EG!! I can hear Honda fan boys gasping in shock all across the world!

If you can get over the obvious Honda – Dodge hate, it’s clear to see why this is a cool choice. Cool gimmicks such as oil squirters, oversized diameter valves and seats, exhaust valves made of Inconel and a larger displacement are all great upgrades over the usual GSR or K series swap.

440hp / 424 ft lbs of tq from one unique swap.

Happy boosting!
