Engines

There are countless engine options but only a handful we recommend.

Our engine lineup starts with the perfectly balanced and light weight Honda civic D16 engine. In our opinion the perfect swap to the antiquated A series drivetrain.

Why the D16?

The Honda Civic our motors come from were able to reach 60mph in just shy of 7 seconds, with an impressive 37/44mpg due to their Vtec technology. With a weight savings of nearly 40% our Super cooper is able to significantly improve upon those figures. Our 130hp D16y8 standard configuration reaches 0-60 in well under 6 seconds and has a fuel economy of nearly 50mpg

Honda Civic D16y8 (Standard) 

We chose this readily available motor for several reasons, first off its all aluminum block and head shaves off 20+lbs from the original A series drivetrain. Its smaller displacement also allows for our A/C upgrade. What it lacks in power it makes up for in balanced weight and stays cool in the corners and hot days. 

Honda B Series (Sport)

The inspiring 160-200hp B Series twin cam engine for the power focused driver. For more power, more speed, and a bit more money, the race proven B Series won't let you down. Our motors and transmissions are professionally rebuilt and come with a 1 year warranty. Note: Electronic A/C now available.

TRANSMISSIONS

Both engine configurations offer an optional freeway gearing that improves fuel economy as well as reduce engine noise while Driving at higher speeds. OUr transmissions are built specifically for each build. we offer several performance upgrades such as LSD (Limited Slip Differential), and upgradable clutches. Our transmissions are professionally built and come with a 1 year warranty.
