    I'm looking for a 96 above B18b swap, so I can finally get this car started again. I have cash and might be willing to trade a 91 240sx. Let me know what you guys have.

    too expensive. I saw someone paid 1800 for the longblock. Not worth it.

    1800 for the longblock where? hmotors longblock for a b18b is like 800

    b18b swap is going to be around 1800-2200 anywhere. you might beable to find one at a junk yard but you will still be paying a good amount.

    Yea I guess I was a little wrong about the pricing but still thats a lot of money for a B18b swap. I've seen a lot of post on here and other forums that say you shouldn't pay more the 1500 for a LS swap. I guess I'll just keep looking. They might be the best in the business but just to much for me.

    yea I know. But 2200 plus shipping is to much. You can find them for a lot less then that.

    1500 should be the price for a complete swap. Has anyone heard of Performance Concept? I found an ad for them on Hondaclassifieds. They are some company out of Grand Folks North Dakota or something. Just want to check and see if anyone has heard of them.


    Their offering a 96-98 B18b swap complete for $940.99 plus shipping. Sounds like a good deal to me.
