Default Biggest Engine EVER!

What is the biggest engine (in HP) that you can put into an 04 civic? If there was no money limit what is the biggest engine that can be put in... what is the most hp you could put into a civic? Could a civic ever beat a muscle car like a cobra or a corvette? Have you ever seen or heard anything like that?

money no question i suppose you could drop in a c32...but that wouldnt be worth it. look for a k20a, a k20a2, or a k24a4.

you can put as much HP as you want into any car if you do it right.

yes and yes. i've seen civics on mostly stock parts and moderate boost beating out vettes at the drag strip. (before anyone calls BS...88-91 CRX Si with a DOHC ZC...good for mid-high fourteens easy...then a garrett t3/t04e, running 7psi...c5 base vette stock).

Now with money in mind, how much would it take me to really thrash a z06 on the street... and I mean stomp it flat?

a lot.

you're talking engine swap, internals (including sleeving), major headwork, forced induction...the whole nine yards. thats some huge money...especially with a 7G civic.

I’ve seen a 92 civic hatch back on E-BAY with a small block Chevy and a 6-71 blower sticking out of the hood. It still had the stock front tires and hub caps. If you had enough cash you could go that route. If it wasn’t for the blower it might have fit under the hood. If you pulled up to some one in a lot of traffic you could blame the noise on some one else’s car.

Would it be less than 20 grand? This is only a wish list for when I am a rich old man with nothing to do with his money, kinda thing. All I want to do is be able to pull up to any kid in their car on the street and know that my car (although old and known to suck) will rape it. I would be willing to pay anything to achieve it. So more or less than 20k?

for about a good 10k u you beat the richmans 50k car. (asuming u already have a car paid for) if not. then like another 3-5k to buy a civic or whatever.
