I told Crazy J that I was finding cheaper Accord engines than Civic ones and he confirmed he would charge about the same to swap it, but another $3-400 to swap a transmission at the same time, plus transmission fluid.

$2,500 plus fluid just seems too much. Sure, the drive train should last another 15-20 years, but the rest of the car isn't that nice.

I don't think there is anything to do, but resuming Operation Pig Lipstick.
