Default For modding: Cedia or Civic or Lancer Mivec?!?

Hey guys,
I'm plannin to get a new car as i'm selling my Swift and have zeroed in on these two models...the Mitsubishi Cedia and the Honda Civic(old one)

What i had in mind was gettin a 2nd hand Cedia and souping it up like with the usual exhaust, port+polish etc etc when someone told me to get a Civic for a very less price and then do a engine transplant and get 180bhp... So now its all too confusing..

So can u guys help me out... And i need the car to be reliable for daily use as well..


Thanks in advance

Look around for one of the older civics. Put in a B16 or a B18 and you are good to go. Will be VFM too if you could get a car under 4L and spend another 3 for the engine transplant.

TCing a cedia too looks very interesting. You have a handler that can move as well. It all depends on your budget and your patience.

Dont Civic and Cedia have completely different underpinnings? Cedia is a proven handler, but the older Civics that you get here are too long and very sedan for any serious stuff. I havent driven either, so this is all hearsay.

Getting a second hand Cedia wont be that easy, since not too many have sold anyways.

Are you talking about grey market imports? If so, then its better to pick up an Old Honda City instead for an engine swap.

Yup I agree with GTO. Civic will be difficult to find.

Your options are City with the engine swap like Ford_rocam's, Cedia but difficult to find or another good option is the lancer with the MIVEC like sideways.

I need to kep everything under 6.5lakhs.. I guess there is a Lancer Mivec for anrd 7lakhs but its a bit overboard.

I heard there is a done up Civic in Blore for about 3lakhs. And later i could plonk a D16 in it...

Ohc in reasonably good shape: 3L
Custom paint, wheels, tyres, Kit:1L tops
Audio i beleive you already have.

B16A: 1.5L
B16b: 2L
B18C5: 2.5 L

You can have your ideal car well within 6.5 L, and you could add some seats, neons and all that jazz with the left over change too!!!

Guys....how about a Lancer Mivec. There is one in blore and i think maybe it could be right within the budget. I think its got the Mivec engine, suspension, 4wheel disc brakes n the lot. So what do u guys say??
