Re: just ordered my swap!

Put aside another 500-700 dollars for extra parts that may be missing or have broken. They make it look all fancy on the sites, but they really just rip them out of cars in Japan, throw um into a warehouse, and don't get touched till you buy it.

Not to discourage anything, I have a swapped engine myself, just dont be disappointed if you need to "clean" it up a bit, figuratively and literally.

Re: just ordered my swap!

Also, you may want to do the timing belt and water pump as well as any other regular maintenance you think of while you have this fresh engine. Just because it only has 50k miles on it doesn't mean it wasn't romped on over in the motherland. Plus, now is the best time to do it anyways, since the engine is already out of the car, you have all the room in the world and can take your time, I mean the car obviously isn't going anywhere anyways, and fresh starts are always win. :D

Re: just ordered my swap!

All u may need is some sensors. HMO is really good with their motors.

Do u even know who hmotors is? Its prolly the most reputable site to buy a motor from. If theres any sensors or anything broken on the motor Im sure they'll replace it. I have never heard one bad thing about hmotors.

Re: just ordered my swap!

HMO willreplace some of the main components but if u read there clauses when buying im fairly certain they say u may need to replace some sensors. But HMO is by far the best place to get a motor. I got mine thru them and it had 27k on it

Re: just ordered my swap!

I got mine from HMO and everything was pristine. I set aside money for replacing timing belt/water pump/oil pump just for peace of mind..

Re: just ordered my swap!

Make sure you check the compression! Ive heard a fair share of horror stories from friends buying these engines.
