In my opinion, you should sell the car and get a Pre-worshipped Civic. In any case Good luck.I will be glued to this thread to see if you go all the way.

You should look @ the RR modded CIVIC..absolute bliss.

Attaching the complete functional delta between type 1 v/s type 3. Total cost approx 2.8 lakhs. If the upgrade cost be be lowered by 1/3 rd i'm in. I might go through the forum to look at other ways to improve low end torque :-( Current cost is prohibitive. btw, Is there a way to plonk a civic heart into this car. If yes, how

Pretty impressive idea actually! I would suggest looking for an engine off a crashed sx4 or maybe an engine that mysteriously found its way into chorbazar!
Imho, the real life difference between the old and new sx4 isnt really that much to warrent spending so much money.
Ive driven the old sx4 quite a bit and i drive a vvt on a daily basis. The bottom end torque is more prominent on the vvt but its not so different from the previous one.

Cheers!

Buddy, get yourself a nice free flow exhaust tuned for low-mid range.
Since you are based out of Bangalore, get in touch with Race Dynamics for a piggy back ECU or a remap.

On a lighter note, modding a car isn't very much like deltas on a software patch update.
