    Should I perform this engine swap? (2017 Type R to a 2020 Civic Hatch Sport)

    So I have a 2020 Civic Hatch sport (6-speed MT). I bought it brand new back in March so I only have about 3300 miles on the car. However, there is a shop near me that has a 2017 Type R Engine+transmission with only 2800 miles on it. They're charging $9k for the engine. So I started doing the math;

    My car ran me about $23k
    A Type R costs about $35k but the stealership would never sell a Type R at MSRP

    If I were to buy this engine and put it in my car I'd probably have to make some minor adjustments to the axle and the brakes to accommodate the engine, but on top of all of that it would still come out less than MSRP of a Type R.

    Should I make this swap? I would be going from 180 HP to 309HP (JDM engine).

    Even better, Since my engine is so new, I can probably just trade the shop my current engine and I would just pay the difference (since the type R engine would cost more than my 1.5L turbo). I'm sure there's probably someone with a Civic LX that wouldn't mind an upgrade to a 1.5L.

    The type R has a lot more to it than just the engine...

    Also, who would pay to swap your engine into a base model civic?

    That seems like a lot of extra work. Theyre both 10th gen so the bodies are fairly similar

    Don't really care about the warranty its already paid off.

    Also, the way it stands stock, my car is already a sleeper. Im not beating anyone in a race (unless I hook it up with HonData). And even then I would only be able to safely get an additional 20-25hp making it (at best) on par with a stock SI.

    First, you haven't looked into this at all if you think that this will be as simple as 23+9=32. For starters, who is doing the swap for you?

    Second, you're going to end up with a POS one-wheel-drive ****box with little Civic brakes and soft Civic suspension. Why on earth would you want to drive that?

    Third, if you wanted a fast car, why did you buy a brand new 180hp car? Earlier this year I bought a 2yr old Ford for the same amount but it has way more tech, better traction, and more power/torque than even the Type R. In other words, sell your ****box and get a better car instead of trying to polish a turd.

    This is a terrible purchase and I highly suggest you scrap this idea before you get yourself into a mess of trouble. After all is said and done you will have paid more than a brand new R even with the dealership markups without any of the residual value perks.

    You will be time, effort, and money ahead by selling your current car and buying the car you want.

    If you swap you will end up with an unreliable endless money pit that will have horrible resale value.

    This, also how will the ecu handle the Frankenstein car?

    Also the resale value will become zero.

    That's a terrible idea. You'd be better off buying a Type R.

    If you're going to swap it, do it with something like Civic EK or S2000
    Don't hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit softly.

    If you wanted a fast car you shouldve just gotten a C6 vette or a new/used 5.0.
    I am sure you'll end up spending more than the cost of a type r with that idea. Engine swaps are never simple especially when dumping a high performance one into an economy car.

    If you're willing to spend that much money for ~300hp and you're set on keeping that car, a much cheaper option is the 27won w1 drop in turbo, downpipe, and a flex fuel kit. You'd save money even if you built the block. On 91 you'd make about 280whp 280wtq and with 30% ethanol you'd push to maybe 310-320, but not as much as an Si would. If you don't touch the intake and the exhaust past the downpipe you'll have a decent sleeper for a new civic
