Tragedy!!

So i was cruising around yesterday down a residential street, I hit a stop sign, wait my turn and press on the gas. As I hit the middle of the intersection i hear a loud screech and my engine goes out. I pull over to the side of the road and park. After i recieve no response from the engine I checked all my spark plugs and whatever i could check within a half hour. I came to the conclusion I couldnt do anything. Luckily my car went out right in front of an auto shop. I gave the auto shop my keys and told them to check it out. The mechanic calls me this morning saying my engine is most likely seized! Now I'm no pro on engines or anything, but it sounds like i need a new engine.


I have a 1998 Civic with a SOHC.

What can I do?

Sell the car "as is"
Rebuild the engine
Replace the engine with a same model engine
Replace the engine with a same model engine and sell the car
Replace the engine with a stronger engine

swap the engine for a b series of your liking or if that scares you just pick up a good used d16
k swap is gonna be a lot of cash compared to a b swap.

Get a GSR (B18C1) block and put on a Type R head (B18C5)

The cheaper way to go to get some pretty good power is just go with a B16A.
They have very decent power but not alot of money. A B18C5 will run you around 4G

B18C1(GSR) engine is pretty good =)

Id vote if you just want some extra power but not burn a hole in your pocket get a B16A and throw a few mods on it. You will like it =)

spend $200 on a japanese SOHC replacement.

or

spend about $1200 on a B series swap. I would go LCRVtec (B20 vtec) with some boost. But then again, thats just me.

well whats your budget??
if your cheap--just replace the engine
if you've got a little bit of money--get a b18 or b20 and do a mild build
if you've got alot of cash--b20 and do this:

this is from my other thread..hehe

If you have the time to be without the car for a little while and the money to finance putting in a stronger engine then do that. It sounds like however that you aren't looking to have a fast car (IMO) so just replace the engine and decided whether or not you want to keep the car.

a B20 is from an early model CRV. If you put a B16 head on it, it is known as an LCRvtec motor. They make tons of torque and are easy on the wallet (compared to ANY K20 swap)

you can find a d16 from a civic or integra of around your same year for real cheap and putting it in isnt even hard especially if its a direct replacement of your stock engine. Run that used engine till it craps out and put in another one...
you can find a used engine with mid to high mileage for under $800 easy

Ya...like I said earlier, prolly a B18 would be the best bet cause you can find them fairly cheap (prolly not much more than a replacement d16), plus it'd be a lil stronger, a lil faster, and easier to find good parts for.

K series swaps are costly, 4gs compared to maybe 1500.
