    Wat up guys and gals, just joined. I guess ill jump right in. I got a 95 civic coupe and im ready for a gsr swap. My mechanic said he can do the whole swap engine, tranny, axles, shift linkage, mounts the whole 9 for $6200, am i being ripped off? Oh ya and after the swap i got a 6 month warranty on the motor (internals) and tranny. He said i can race all i want and in anything goes wrong with motor or tranny he can get me a new one. Watcha think?

    kinda ripped off...$5,000 is normal...but hey, if you think the warranty is worth 1,200, go for it.

    the engine costs about $3200 (if memory servers), say $900 more if he gets ripped off on the mounts and axles. and then id say $1,000 in labor. That comes up to $5,100 in the worst case senario.

    Reputable shops down here in Texas will do a complete GSR swap for less than $5k and warranty it too.
