    I live near waukesha, wisconsin. I don't know how willing you are to drive and where you live in respect to chicago, but there is a shop "A+ Foriegn" That does swaps and should beable to hook you up for cheaper than that. The shop is like an hour from the border, and easy to get to. Check the site, HandHautoparts.com for more info and then call him or e-mail them. They have done a H22 swap before so I know they can do it. They don't use USDM motors usally, they have a outside the country supplier, JDM usally. It is cheaper most of the time too. LIke I said, call or e-mail MIKE L. -he goes by Bear otherwise. TELL him DARIN sent you. I am good friends with him. _he's my neighbor, and shit.
