It hasn't been done to my knowledge, and considering the differences in the front clips of the two cars, I think it'd be MUCH more work than it'd be worth. Nothing is the same - for starters, the hoods sit at two totally different angles.

Sure, you could do it with enough money, but why? I can think of much better way to spend those thousands.

Id rather do an Odyessy front end conversion lol.

I don't think any other car would look great with the EP3s eyes wide open style of headlights.

pondering . . . dnt you think an ep3 would looks so hot with an em2 front end conversion (01-03)? i've always been wondering what it would look like and in my head it looks beautiful. iwas thinking ripping the front end of a 2002 ep3 (coz the tails look so much better than the 0?-05) and just change it . . . hmmmmm?

thats actually not that difficult.
you can use the 7gen front and just cut the bumper out, and about an inch on each side for the hood, and a little on the fenders.

hahah, hey but now what if i had wanted to do a EP3 engine swap into a Em2, could i technically take everything under the hood of that EP3 and put it into my EM2? or would i have to do some slight/extreme modification?

You can swap the EP3 engine into an EM2 without major modification. It's the same as swapping an RSX motor.
