in my humble opinion, anyone that is running a shop off a geocities webhost, aka FREE, cannt be trusted.

If they can't spend $10 at www.10-domains.com to buy their freaking shop name.com for a YEAR - 10 bucks... you cannot trust them

No, i haven't talked to B at all tonight, except me showing him that link to the 12 second turboed gsr on stock internals.

See, i said almost the same fucking thing, b/c its the truth.

The motor should cost no more than $3300 and it is a simple swap.A thousand bucks is highway robbery,I don't care where you live.People are taking advantage of the gaining popularity of swapping motors into Hondas.If the shop knows what they are doing,and has the equipment to do the swap it shouldn't take more than a few hours.That price equates to around $150-$200 an hour,Honda doesn't even charge labor like that.

I talked to Chris at Hook Ups in Upland and these are the prices he gave me for swaps(price includes parts and labor):

B16(2nd gen) = $2900
GSR = $4000
B20/Vtec = $4200
H22 = $4900

I got those prices from him about a week ago. I hope this helps.

b20/vtec? 4200? jesus. thats a bomb waiting to go off.

gsr's can be had for 2800 bucks RETAIL. which means a shop can easily get them for less than that.
In bulk, a JDM gsr complete swap goes for about 700 bucks if you buy 20 of them, or something.
just know that.

one thing pissed off.....how much does the usdm gsr go for?
im trying to get it legally smogged once the swap is done.

second of all, my friend owns an import accessory shop.
do you think i can use his business license to get a discount
on an engine?

(he doesnt do swaps nor carry engines, but im allowed full access to his license)

usdm motors are harder to come by, and thus, a little more expensive. expect 3200 bucks for an average miles (60k ish) usdm obd2 gsr.

i doubt your buddy's license is going to do you any good. but hat all depends where you score your usdm motor from in the first place.

-i think the pricing for swaps varies depending on where you are. in SoCali it generally costs more to get one.

you trust yourself more when you do it yourself. save some money for counter parts.
