    does anyone know the average price of turnkey b16a2 (smog legal) swap in cali?
    on a 96' ex coupe 5spd?

    i have no time to do it myself, school occupies 99.9% of my free time.

    i found one that wants 2800.00....that about right?


    and a reputable shop?

    $2800 is excessive without the labor to put it in.Hookups quoted me around $2700-$3000 for a B16 into a civic,but that was a few months ago.

    I am in Germany,I talked to Jake at Hookups a few times on the phone about swaps and what not.I have never heard of a swap for a B16 being anywhere near that much.They are in Upland.If you can get it for $2800 install that isn't that bad considering it CAN cost that much to do it yourself.Just make sure the shop is reputable and capable,and not going to screw you around if they run into problems.Get somthing in writing.

    GSR's usaully run around $3100+ for the motor,install shouldn't exceed $600,as it is a very simple operation.

    Where are you getting a price of $3700 from for a GSR swap. The minimum price for a GSR swap in SoCal is like $4200-4500. And if you have the money go for an ITR. Signal Auto here in Torrance will throw one on your car for $5300, that's how much they quoted me when I asked them about 2 months ago.

    3700 for gsr motor? Buy outside of cali for 3200 complete swap and ship it..

    I wouldn't buy a b16a2 for more than 2500 bucks and it woul dHAVE to be a good, low mileage motor!

    usdm b16a2's swap cost around 2300-2500.. you wont find someone who will install it for 300 bucks :( b/c the harness adapter needed is 230 from that one place you showed me.

    Maybe try it yourself?

    Karnash, have you thought about doing the swap yourself? Buy all the parts and rent a cherry picker. It's pretty straight forward for B-series swap.
    You're in the ballpark. That B16 swap shouldn't cost you any more than $3000 installed.

    complete b16a2 swap - 2500.
    what car is this going into? that will vary the price if you need mounts.
    you will need radiator hoses, fluids, etc etc... it adds up fast

    expect 3000 for parts.
    500 for labor.

    I'll talk to my friend who is going to be hooking me up with my swap and see how much he'll do a B16 swap for. The shop is in Pomona. I'll try to hook you up since we're practically neighbors and all.
    Also, try calling Hook-up Imports in Monteclair. I actually heard a lot of good things about them and people say they got good prices. Ask for Chris cuz the couple of time I called some guy gave me some bogus info.

    I'll try to let you know about the swap price within a week cuz I probably won't see the guy until next week.
