Not everyone has the skills to pull this off, in fact, I'd say dam few have the skills and tenacity to gather the components, let alone get it to fire then pass emissions at the ref station. Talk about jumping through hoops...
It could be a bit critical, but then again so can anything else, my opinion as well as the opinion of others included. Yes, I've done a swap like this. Gathering the components isn't too bad, and could probably be done cheaper than my estimates IMO. Firing is just a matter of hooking everything up as per the factory manual, then troubleshooting/replacing/returning if something doesn't work. The ref inspection is just like any other smog check, just a bit more in the way of a visual inspection. Odds are, they'll poke around, make sure everything is factory, be it CA or Fed, and run it on the dyno for smog. Takes an hour or two and $30 IIRC.

A matter of months? Only if he didn't know how to figure an average... Like I said before, I never said that it isn't worth whatever it sells for, I just said that the profit margins are excessive IMO.

Good job

Another sweet swap car would be a clean DC integra with a y5 or d15b dual stage. They mount right up with factory mounts

A clean Gsr shell can be had for about $1500 and a complete swap for about $450 ecu and all. A 50mpg Gsr for about 2 grand, sell for $6000.

thanks

yes, a dual stage would be nice. Just converting it "legally" wouldn't work. Those ecu's arent offered here.
