it's true. zeeman's name has been dropped a few times on this site. certainly worth a trip out there.

Or if you got the right tools and equipement you can do it yourself. Its like a 5/10 in difficulty.

it depends on what swap he's doing. an h series into an ek requires cutting i know. that could boost the difficulty level up a few points.

Everybody has different levels of mechanical skills. A 5/10 for you might be an 11/10 for someone else...lol.

Swapping an engine is a pretty big job if you've never done one before.

^^^ I wouldnt do a swap by myself for the first time. I would need someone who has done it before to show me , maybe then i can do it myself ( or some help)

Try zeeman , as he is done many of them

Cheap and good don't belong in the same sentence. If the labour quote is dirt cheap, the 'mechanic' is going to cut corners to finish the swap quicker. For example, if there is any wiring involved, he may not solder/heatshrink the connections like zeeman and myself do.

Drop one of us an e-mail (addresses are in my sig.) Our quotes/prices are on our website.

Hivelocity will do your swap and make it look factory fresh. Big up for the boys at hivelocity. I drive 2.5hrs just to have them do work on my car.
