    My local salvage yard has a 1991 complete b18A1 liftout available. They are asking $1200.

    I've talked them down on past purchases, so I know they are more than likely willing to negotiate.

    Is $1200 an acceptable / good / bad price for that liftout (swap) ?

    holy crap your junkyards are rapists I wouldnt pay more than $700 complete. I dont know where your located but here in wisconsin a b18A isnt that hard to find probably because not many people know how to swap and the junkyard guys have no clue about honda's.

    $700 for a full swap, or just the engine?

    That's seems WAY cheap to me for a full swap.

    I'm finally financially ready to buy a swap, but would prefer to buy locally so I'm not wasting money on shipping.

    Give me the final yes or no, is $1200 for the full swap overpriced?
