Need of a decent importer for engine

Postby haireball9 » Mon Jun 19, 2006 2:12 pm

Ok pulled my engine and there is a whole in the block behind #1, so at this point I want to bet a 185 and swap it into my 165.

I really need to know if any of you have bought one and from whom. How was the transaction, any recommendations are greatly appreciated.

I really don't want to get screwed, I already have about $1500 for the car and i expect to spend the same on a JDM engine/trans/tranny ecu and harness

Will post pix tomorrow of the whole :doh:

This is where I got my 3sgte from and the transaction went very well. The motor fired on the first try w/ no pings and no knocks. If I had to do buy another one I'd probably go through these guys.
So where in central PA are you? We're having a meet in Rockville the 29th of July, check the NE forum for details. Welcome to the board!
