Hi could anyone tell me more info on swaps. I am mainly interested how much about would it cost if I buy a N/A and Put JDM 3S-GTE in it I know a user ishcoleobo have done it some How much did it cost and wich parts extra did he had to get?

Another thing is if I get a Turbo and i deside to swap with JDM Jspec 3S-GTE will it fit right in and would i have to change any computers or any electronics? or wil it just fit in with no problems?

Thanks guys if you can help me.

Hey... thats me ;)

I was missing...

- Intercooler, piping and fan.
- Air Flow Meter
- Wiring Harness (had it but it was cut)
- Coil/Ignitor
- Turbo Axles
- Exhaust System

I paid something like $2,200 for my clip... and the labor was $800. When all was said and done it ended up costing me about $4,500.

With a complete clip, or a nice half cut.... you would come out better.

Actually... if I would have waited just a bit... the shop that did my swap has 3 - 2nd gen half cuts sitting in their shop. Very very very clean engines. I was really surprised.

EDIT: You will need a new ECU (and wiring harness if you are doing a NA -> Turbo swap).... but that SHOULD come with your clip. If you are doing a USDM to JDM swap... and you don't change the ECU.... you aren't really accomplishing too much.
