planning a swap
Posted 19 July 2008 - 04:33 AM
so i'm just looking for a quote on whats reasonable and whats a ripoff on parts

it's not hard to find an EJ vehicle very cheap - wrecked, rusted, bad trans, bad engine...etc. i've been offered some freebies before even. that's the easiest way to do a swap anyway, just have the entire vehicle there.
putting a swap together just by using parts is the long way around.

i just paid 4k for an entire sti swap.
but i can get ej 1.8L for 50 bucks right now.
so saying ej series is a little vage, theres a BIG diffence in prices out there lol. there is many versions of the ej motor.

of course keep your eye open locally, the one thing going for you is they tend to linger longer in areas where subaru's aren't popular. it's like gambling....it's just hit or miss if the perfect vehicle will come available or be cheap.

and i'm waiting for a legacy to roll by for cheap. i've also been putting into thought of keeping my tranny and just doing a motor swap for now, because i've only seen 1 xt6 in my life, and thats owned by my gf's stepbrother.. and he's not giving it up. i can get a barebones ej22 for about $400 from a local wreck center, but i think i might beable to lower the price
