    I posted this over on civicland.com bri hope you dont mind me posting here as well.. (dont worry banner ad is coming ;) was telling asmallsol this as well


    I along with 2 other partners will be importing motors again (old hybridrevolution.com). This time on a much larger scale. Our plan is as follows. We are going to get about 6-10 motors right away at our cost as an inventory. Something i never did when i was handling it all myself.

    What we'll be focusing on mostly b/d JDM series and Nissan motors AND body parts.. lips headlights etc..

    please dont ask what prices are what yet.. we've got a warehouse, distributors lined up local and nationwide shops and the supply to finally meet it.

    if you wanted to do a swap and were waiting for a good deal.. your about to get it.. hang tight for more details

    again not a shamless pitch.. just news on me

    <_< haha i knew you'd ask that question when I was reading his post.

    My 1.8 just isn't good enough for you. :(


    Sounds like a plan mang!!!! Too bad I don't wanna do a swap or rebuild, i'd definitely take you up on a JDM 1.8 to fit in my Si.

    mazda motors too.. im bringing over a b6T for a good friend of mine (owner of teamcapri.com)

    pretty much gonna encompass most perfomace motors honda, mazda, toyota, kia (oops j/k), nissan etc..

    i wanna bring over a honda city too i think that'd be fun

    of course it's still gonna be the low price to customers etc no insane markups (you'd be suprised)

    that would be the 323 GTX :) theres also a 323 GTR that makes 210hp out of a turbocharged 1.8L DOHC from the factory but those are really hard to come across from what i hear.

    would REALLY love to do the clips again.. but i can say we prob wont for a month or so till we get things rolling again.

    so far we have storage for motors.. dunno how much mass clips would take up but we're not leaving out the idea.. i've been thinking of RHD my civic for a while

    Depending on the limited markup you guys can get away with, I'd LOVE to get a 2JZ-GTE swap... Motor, tranny, downpipe, driveshaft, ecu, harness... The whole shebang.

    You gots it.

    I worked the math, and for ABOUT the cost to build a 5.0 with heads, intake, TB, rotating assembly and everything to make about 400-450 horses, I could drop in a perfectly reliable, bone stock 2JZ with bolt ons and make the same power, and about the same torque...

    Plus, the SOUND of a 2JZ makes it all worthwhile. :)
