For all the ricer joking and mod idiocy of the Civics, they are structurally tanks. I've seen alot of them turned into sturdy "hoppers".

Your weight? You'll have to show me a 383 on a go kart before I'd even begin to believe it Dakota. Somehow I just cant see tubing holding up to 400+ pounds of torque. let alone your beefy structure. All I can envision is a great FAIL demotivational poster. Friend had one with a 450 Suzuki on it. It held but bent in all kinds of ways. Trip to drive , fast enough to shake the frontend to the point of scaring you to let go of the throttle.

I agree, A mid 80'* Camaro would be a good home for a 383.

Huh, have fun. I'm probably gonna have to pay $1000 for a damned EGR Valve fix, I think now my dad will want to fix it himself. But I guess for a couple hundred bucks, you can't turn it down.
