    this almost makes no sense, but what I gathered from this is that this guy wants to trade your boosted "D" for a non boosted GSR, right? If so you have to think about what comes with the engine, does it have the ECU, wiring harness, aftermarket mounts (if applicable), tranny, axles? If it does then another question you need to ask is how many mile does it have, does the transmission grind? Why was it pulled?
    Go on you own judgement but think about expenses if you go with the GSR swap.

    Do it then, you can always turbo the gsr later,
    1st the gsr has WAY more potention than that d15
    2nd it probably puts down the same power as yours does now
    3rd it has a higher resale value then any d series engine
    You gotta think about the mileage on the gsr though, if it has less than 100k your good.

    sorry, let me clear it up.


    i have a 95 coupe with a single cam on boost (complete kit)

    a buddy of mines has a 94 hatch with a gsr motor (n/a)

    both cars are in perfect working order.

    he wants to trade me (his gsr motor for my single cam w/ the turbo kit.)

    i like my whole turbo setup and everthing but in the back of my head im thinking (DAMN A GSR!!)

    i am asking your opinion if i should do it or not.

    i hope thats better/clearer

    His buddy wants his complete D-Series set up in a direct trade for his buddies motors which is a NA GSR. Is that so hard to understand?? I would go with the GSR given that its in good condition with low miles, and complete.

    Gotcha. Haven't been thinking to well today! Thanks man, I would go GSR, for three reasons (minus me being jealous);
    1. GSR more displacement
    2. VTEC
    3. You can turbo this bitch too!
    4. Your car is also light... with the added Displacement and VTEC it will go faster!!! Theoretically (sp?)

    I dunno, i've had that under my avatar for the longest. When the movie S.W.A.T. came out, i thought of something dumb like S.W.A.P. since we frequent a site thats about swapping.

    hey guys, thanks for all your input.

    i went ahead and did the trade today.

    i really miss my boost, but that gsr sure looks pretty on my garage floor.

    besides the single was dieing (fucked up the rings i think) so i decided to just trade.

    :spin: :spin:


    hopefully put the :worthy: gsr on boost one day. :driver:
