    4 grand for a front clip is actually pretty reasonable for a GSR. Not exactly a bargain, but your not getting ripped off at least

    Only problem is it is a OBD II clip and your car is OBD I.

    92-95 OBD I.

    IMO,you'd be doing better to get a 94-95 GSR complete changeover for one of the places on line,they run about $3100-$3300,so once you add shipping,and incidentals of the swap,you'd hit about the same mark.

    MOST of the on line places have complete swaps,as in the motors come ready to go in with all the asccesories.You have to make sure and specify that when you order it.
