Thanks guys. The car is sweet to drive. After driving it around a couple times, i got to see how much nicer the 2nd gens are vs. the 1st gen is300s like mine. It feels alot more, expensive I guess(to me it does).

Depends how much 2 years of your life is worth to you I suppose


Far as I know nobody has been able to have this successfully done at a commercial shop so far though (there was one fella who posted about it a while back, had $50,000 into the swap on top of the cost of the 2IS and still didn't have it working yet).... that's why I asked if he'd documented the work, because he could've sold pre-made wiring harnesses for this swap for a fortune...sadly it appears he didn't.

You'd also have to deal with it being unable to pass emissions (though you might be lucky enough to live in a state without testing).

He could have done it much faster, but its just that this was his side project, he didnt get paid to do this, so this was what he did in the little spare time he had for the last 2 years. He's a busy guy and flys out of the country alot to do tuning in the islands, as well as take care of clients here as well.

and yeah, this car would fail an emissions test terribly lol.

Better question- if you had to estimate how many hours of labor he put into the project, what would you estimate the number to be?

Then we can multiply that by $100 and add the cost of parts (many of which sound like they had to be custom made).

This assumes one can find someone equally competent to do the work at $100/hr of course which isn't a given, but it'd at least give a ballpark of cost.

Ill have to ask him then get back to you on that one. But its easily 200hrs if I had to take a guess.
