The price varies alot. From 500-1500. Check out DSMtrader or look into JDM engines.

The price for a swap into a 2g cost around 1100 plus another 500 or so for parts you need that are not compatible.

6 bolt vs. 7 bolt motors


Hey, I have a question about the difference between the 6 bolt and 7 bolt motors. I understand the 6 bolts are stronger (stronger rods i believe?), but at what point (in relation to horsepower/1320 times) does that make a difference? Like is a 7 bolt able to handle, say, 300hp, capable of doing 12/13s? The reason I ask is because i found a 93 talon turbo in the classifieds. Im not really aiming for much more than the stage 1 setup, at least not for now. Thanks guys.

If you are looking for 12/13s car, the 7 bolt motor should be no problem at all.

he general sense for the motors is roughly 400-450whp for 6 bolts and roughly 380-420whp for 7 bolts

Each is very capable of running low 12's-high 11's stock

7 bolts are weaker but they are also lighter and rev a bit faster. You shouldn't worry at all if you're running under 350 HP.

Any engine can get crankwalk. All you have to do is give it a good reason to. Crankwalk however is generally a 2G 7 bolt issue.

Simply put just check to see the build date of the car in the doorjam. 6 bolt's were made from the beginning up until build date 5/92. Thre are a few that may have 7 bolts around that era but most all dont. Unless your getting an early 1g dsm than you need not worry about checking cause no 2g's have them. If your still not sure than check the oil pan. The 6 bolt has an indentation where the 7 bolt has a bulge.

Some advice... even if you do get another 1g with a 7 bolt the odds are definetly with you for not getting crankwalk for 2 reasons: 1) its a 1g and I have never heard of one walking and 2) it will probably have 100k + miles on it, and if it were going to walk chances are it would have a while back

Question

6 bolt, 7 bolt?


I have a 93 TSI and was wondering how I could tell if it had a 6 or 7 bolt. I know they went to 7 half way in 92, but isn't it a possibility my car was made in 92, even though it's a 93? THANKS MENG

Yeah, its possible your car was made in 92 (you can check the firewall for the month and year I believe) but I think they stopped the 6 bolt after early 92. Almost 100% sure you would have a 7 bolt stock.

Edit : Hey, another Iowa Tuner! Don't sell the civic, trust me.

Thumbs up

I believe the transition came in May of '92. If you check my list of previous posts, there is one from a thread I started about this exact subject not too long ago. You may find some more information there.
Oh, I'm also an IOWA boy!!!

Being a 93 I believe you have the 7-bolt.
