I'd say about 3PM. Maybe buttering the sides of the pan?

You're planning on buying a new model Civic and immediately pulling the motor? Sounds like you're 14 years old. Regardless of how stupid this question sounds, I would suggest a turbo and call it quits. At 200hp stock, wouldn't be hard to get her up to 280-300 with a decent turbo.

I honestly don't think you should swap the motor because the stock motor for this car is already strong enough. What you should do is buy performance parts to fix up the motor you already have.
