And OP, sure the engine is 3-5K, but then you need the mounting kit, wiring harness modified, driveshaft modified or buy one already done, misc crap, etc etc..it all adds up
I'm trying to price out a swap for if I sold my current power plant and my S13 lol
You beat me to it.
Nobody reads the ******* rules.....
If you want to keep your front end light, keep in mind the ls swap is roughly 70lbs heavier than the rotary. Iron block is going to be significantly more than that. Still fun to drive but that's up to you and something to take into consideration.
You wont know until you look.
Do research on the ls motors and drivetrans FIRST.
Then shop around and see what you can get for the lowest price possible.
If i went by what people said **** was going to cost, i would have just bought a civic..... Seriously.
I was told $10k to do my supra swap. Then $6k. Then $5k seemed reasonable, Now i've got it down to about $3k total to do the swap not including new fluids, timing belt, water pump, sparkplugs, paint and seafoaming....... Oh yeah, and new wires to replace whatever is left over from the fc harness.....
You just gotta shop around and research ON YOUR OWN. B/c you're going to get different answers because not everyone does things or thinks the same way. If anything you'll get so confused or turned off that you'll say "**** it" and drop it.
Treat the swap like a girl you want to bang. Dont ask all your friends..... Just do it and brag about it after it's done.
