    I would never buy a motor from EBAY without seeing it in person first. but that's just me.

    SPECS:
    • Horse Power: 210hp@8000

    Hate to say it, but that motor is clean as hell, at least on the outside... You're probably safe if you use paypal, and talk to they guy before you buy. He has probalby the best feedback i've ever seen for an engine importer...

    It doesn't get much better than this...

    I just saw the hP rating they gave it, but still, it looks legit, and the shipping is a good deal too!

    Look at this, this is a shit load of motors!!!

    yo I would definatly get that swap. I bought my jdm type r swap off ebay got it in 5 days and installed it in my 95 si hatch in 2 days and ran 14.4 in the 1/4 mile that weekend with just the motor no mods.

    You only ran a 14.4 with an ITR... That's a little slow don't ya think? Who did you order it from on ebay? Maybe it was the same person.

    yea...14.4 is still slow for an ITR swap...but depending on what might have happened when you run it (ya know like traction, altitude, track conditions all around) ....you should still be able to run better than that!

    because its fucking anoying and makes the whole post look like it was written by either a 13 year old girl, or some ignorant ghetto ass illiterate thug

    either way it doesnt make for a post that can be taken seriously

    Even though he says he is from the states, make sure first. People like to say they are from the USA and after you pay them they tell you otherwise. Ebay has some scams but I would have to agree with NotURaverage SI and say not to buy the motor unless you see it in person. But thats just me also. :thumbsup:

    holy crap they are just using thin warped pieces of wood to lay those motors on top of one another. that looks like an accident waiting to happen.

    hmotorsonline.com is the fucking shit. i just bought a b16 from them last week. it was only $250 for shipping and it got here in like a week and two days. and my engine looks great from the outside, haven't had a chance to look inside yet. but from the other people i've talked to they said there looked great. if you go through them you shouldn't have to worry about getting an engine thats missing little shit thats important. just be sure to go through the website not ebay, there are alot of posers out there.

    and they ship the engines on pallets. and i've seen pallets hold over 2200lbs at my work without even warping.

    but they are definitly my first choice.


    but again BUY THROUGH THE WEBSITE NOT EBAY i smell scam!!!!!!!!!

    I would save a little more money up. A swap never goes as plan. Always have money for other things. Before that thing goes in, put a new timing belt and water pump on. You have no clue as to how many miles are on that thing, and how the last person treated it. Prostreetonline.com has a package deal were you get all that for like $120. Also, while it is out, you might as well do the clutch.
