isnt there a shop next door to "speed sport"? i know speed sport isnt there anymore, but i think its called evolution..........i would also try APG.?? they could probably install it too... if its too steep for you my crew can do the swap for a decent price .. email me if you need the hook up imp0rted1@hotmail.com

Well i would go to Garage Kwai but i don't know how much they'll do an auto ls for? I know its gonna be alot cheaper than 3300 which is the price for a b16 engine with installation included. Don't go to apg they are OVER PRICED. I'm not sure about evolution....

I heard Evolution is decent in price, but a friend of mine was mad after they messed up histurbo installation. I forget what exactly he said was wrong with it. I think it was something with the new turbo exhaust manifold.

other than that, ive never heard bad things about them. Driver's Image has a really good reputation, but they are expensive.

I think he should just find someone that does it as a side job.I know somebody that they're really good with it. Let me know.

Like mellowboy said I would probably go with Kwai out of all the other shops, unless you want someone who does it on the side. One of my good friends also does swaps, in the last month or so he did 2 b16's and is about to finish his second ZC...in other words he is pretty good.
Mellowboy.....is your name Sammy? Mellowboy sounds familiar.
