    My boy has a 1996 honda civic Auto Ex an got an Ls motor swap changed to a stick with Act clutch an a custom turbo with new axles, short shifter,and got 240 to the wheels for 8,044 dollars. So tell me wasthat too much or was that an alright price for the work that was done?The motor hs 63,000 miles on it.

    I think you might want to edit your post because its too broad...you need to post exactly what he did to his car...

    Bascially he got it changed from an auto to an five speed, motor mounts, tranny , axles, stage two Act clutch for the custom turbo, an all the other things you need to make the Ls swap work . I can go get all the stuff done to it Ij ust wanted to know for an Ls swap with custom turbo from auto to Five speed do you think for 8,044 dollars with only 240 to the wheels was it worth it?

    without knowing what was used for the turbo setup there is no way to tell you whether it was a good deal or not

    "custom turbo" doesnt tell us shit

    auto - 5speed usually costs about 600 - 1000
    LS swaps usually go for 1200 - 2200
    labor for a swap is usually around 1000
    mounts ???? depends on what kind
    axles ???? depends on what kind
    ACT "stage 2" clutch doesnt exist ACT doesnt do "stages"
    custom turbo setup 500 - 20,000+
    labor for turbo ??????
