    I called the guys at hmotorsonline and got a quote for a 99 B18C ITR. They quoted me $500 ($5000 total) more than their website has posted. Does anyone have a contact there that may be able to make sence of this? I've emailed them a few times and got nothing back. I also found a site that offers the motor for $4100 and they say they'll price match. I don't know what to do now.

    Thanks guys,
    Luke Moore

    96-97 ITR motors (motor, tranny, ECU) are $4100

    the Complete changeover for 96-00 is listed as $4500

    Maybe they added shipping, and possibly it is a verified very low miles motor. Call them back and find out.

    They said a 97 would be $4500 and a 99 with 12k miles on it would be $5000. Screw it. I'll just deal with someone else.

    I have personally ordered 7 full swaps from Hmotors, 1 from Jspec, and 1 from MMRusa.... the Jspec swap was absolute dog shit, MMRusa's was a little better, but Hmotors is, bar none, the best place to deal with... I can promise you you will get your money's worth..

    why not spend the extra cash, steve is the best period and if i could get an r motor with 12k!! for 500 more hell yeah. that motor is barely broken in, dont be a fool if you have the extra cash do it.

    by the way there is really nobody else as reputable to deal with.

    Whatever, dude. If you want to pass up dealing with the best in the business and getting a great swap, then do it. Just don't come bitching to us when you get dogshit for a motor with all sorts of corrosion, busted sensors, and an automatic tranny ECU.

    Check out hybridrevolution.com They guy who owns that, is a member here and owns civicland. He is a good guy. I have talked to him many times and has always had pretty good coustomer service. I never actually bought from him since I found a wrecked GSR, but his prices are great.

    No - he did NOT help at all with the alternator or distributor. He would not mail me a new one without me sending him the old one (which still kinda worked, but shorted out all the time). My car had been in teh shop for months and i needed it back (daily driver y0).

    IMO, there is no reason to buy an online swap because there are plenty of B18C's on these shores.

    So is a ITR with 12k worth 5k? I don't mind buying from these guys if all of you are backing them. I'll just see it they can include shipping with that. Who should I talk to when I call out there?

    I think that is very fair if the 12k is verifiable. Talk to Steve.

    ok you said he wouldnt help but then you say he said mail the old one back and he would replace it. your car was in the shop for months over an alternator and dizzy, what the hell kind of mickey mouse shop was this.
