front clip is ususally means "front half" of the car.
when peopel said "i am getting my front clip" it usually means he is getting a half car with engine still in it.
that's how people ususally ships engines around, they chop the car in half and ship the front "clip" so people can make sure they have everything they need (complete engine and wiring) to do the swapt

for example:

The importer cut everything from the dash forward and ship it out. You may find one with body panels like fenders and bumper covers. In my case, the fenders were smashed up and the the front bumper cover was missing. My clip looks like it was a front end collision, hence the twisted up radiator.

Clips are nice because they usually have all the parts you need to do the swap. Mine is just missing two pipes I can easily have made up. Even has the side mount IC.

Taku, mine came with the guage cluster as well as JDM climate control.
