2019 Honda HR-V EX AWD
Hello, I'm new here, and wondering if any one has done yet,# a engine swap to HRV from CRV ?
Thanks, for answer. I have a 2019 HRV and just was wondering about it. I used to do some engine and part swaps for different cars. Trying to get into this again. But sometimes asking a question people takes it the wrong way.I think it's a reasonable question and one I've thought about (but could never do anything about) before. I had a 2019 CR-V and while it wasn't speedy, it was a heck of a lot speedier than my HR-V. Same gas mileage, too. It looks to be about the same size, comes from the same basic lineup from the same manufacturer. If someone likes the HR-V but was looking for more zip, it might make sense depending on the difficulty of the swap. You never know, it might be the next big HR-V thing. Someone just has to do it once. I used to be BIG into Pontiac Fieros (I've owned 6 at one time or another). There were 2 or 3 very popular engine swaps. At some point, someone had to ask, will XXXXX fit?
I'm imagining something more sinister. An AMC 401 Police Interceptor. Given the size of the engine bay, this would have to switch to a mid-engine car. Toss out the back seat, throw in a very short drive shaft, making it RWD only. LOL...it can ALL be done. The wiring...while NOT inpossible willrequire WAY more skill than the swap.
Imagain... a Hemi 5.7 AWD in the HR-V.
Damn... that could be fun!
My first one was a 66 VW Beetle 1300cc worked on the engine from top to bottom, making it 1800cc. Then after that a 73 Nissan 1200, 98 HP, 3 speed automatic, swapping a L24 complete engine, originally 150 hp., taking it to next level on that time, with not to much of $$ to play with to 170-180 hp. Raced a couple of times and them "KABOOM" SOLD $$$$. Ans making Daihatsu Charades with 3 cylinders, Suzuki Forsas, Hyunday Ponys, mini pick-up, Datsun B120 mini pick too. Just trying to make them fly. And that was the way making $$, selling them, and getting dirty. By the way I had mechanics friends working with me. No pics to document it, that is a sad part from my side.My first car was a 69 MG, 1100 cc, so not a lot of power but it was light, heard about people putting in big engines
When I was in the Army back in the 70's, a mate & I bummed a ride into Sydney (Aust.) with a guy in a VW beetle.My first one was a 66 VW Beetle 1300cc worked on the engine from top to bottom, making it 1800cc.
