    Like the title states, a good friend of mine is selling me his 95 LS swap for $450, and I was wondering if its a good deal. It includes Complete Motor-except for dizzy, Tranny, EF b-series mounts, front DA big brake upgrade, axles, custom shift linkage, 91 Si Harness, obd0-obd1 jumper harness. The motor has less than 140k miles, and comes with 91 LS tranny. The only mod is a EK9 N1 Crank Pulley. I plan to swap it into my ED6 and the only bad thing is he hasn't ran it in months...

    I wouldn't buy it. You can get a full swap for $1000.

    I think my choice of words might of confused you. It includes everything I listed except for Dizzy. Now that I read it, I could see how it sounds like it just the motor for $450.

    if you trust it's a good motor, it's a hell of a deal. if the motor is bad, it will cost you a friendship.

    ls swaps are dirt cheap these days. 400 seems right for a complete swap with everything on a b18a, 500 on a b18b

    He is willing to wait for me to get everything up and running. If it doesn't work he will give me my money back. Ive seen and heard it run, pulls good and idles fine. It has been covered the whole time, converted to obd0, but I plan to convert obd1 to get it Reffd/BARD.

    The only thing that sucks, is that LS/VTEC is not legal in California, he got a ref ticket and thats why he's selling it. Headswaps are illegal and its getting harder to smog LSVTECs.

    One quick question, my hatch has 23 spline count hubs and all b-series motors use 26 spline count axles, so I know I need SI or DA hubs, but how hard is it to change them.

    Depends if you have the si I think they will, but the hf and dx models they won't... I just remembered My brothers crx is a hf and the hubs had to be changed out for the teg hubs for it to work..

    If you're getting the Integra knuckles then you dont have to worry about your HF "hubs" cuz you're replacing them.

    I sold my 95 LS swap for $650, so this deal is good!

    I would just get the DA hubs as they are bigger brakes anyways.. And its not hard to change them over...
