Well my buddy put a marcedes engin in a Nissan , but I would rather just buy the marcedes because installing the engin requires you to change almost every part if you car

Yea it's possible but it's a pain in the ass to do you'd have to cut out alot of space.

quit messin around and do it right. V-8 civic. get a welder, grinder, tape measure. some steel, and go to town. get an old nova frame and cut it down. length wise and width wise. where its not stong make it stong. the rear end will probably need to be shortened bu a pro and the drive shafts balanced. the rest of the work you could do yourself, probably even the alignment. just throw a regular hogger in there to get it going. if your going to keep it. throw a blower on it. you might want to consider the ponies you are going to make in the future before doing the trans and rear end. you could do it for cheap if you did most of the work your self. it is hard to say what it would cost but less than you think. put a cage in it tho.
