dats probably bcuz its just for the engine and da swap, but theres also other factors, such as a tranny swap to go along with da engine also u gotta change a bunch of other shit just to make it work, da 20g price tag is more accurate once u consider all da things dat would need to be done to make it all work

4.5k is something more along da lines of say swappin in a fully built b16 engine into a regular civic (including labor)

For 5g's, that is a steal. But more research would be wise. If knew it was for that cheap, I would have one right now. :D

AltEzZa_S4 - Do the 2JZ-GTE swap on your car now!!! If SP can do it for that cheap, I'd say go for it. BTW, how long does it take to do the motor and tranny swap? And is it the getrag tranny?
