engine swap?


EJ1 D16

Recommended Posts

I'm still deciding what engine i want or if i even want to keep my civic or sell it and save for a 240/supra/300zx

Stock D16z6 EJ1 Coupe.

i have been thinking Ls engine swap (maybe vtec) or a d16z6.

I would like 250hp-350hp turbo in mind for both obviously :)!

Me and my friend can do all the work so just need price of parts not install!

 

How much would it cost to make a d16z6, 250+hp? 350hp max

 

How much would it cost to make an Ls 250+hp? 350hp max

 

Still thinking about other engine swaps like the Jdm b16a

 

I think the max i could spend on an engine swap would be $2500

Leaning toward the z6

If i did engine swap i would keep the z6 i have until i rebuild the new engine a bit.

The transmission i have in my z6 currently is crap.. I heard its like 600 for a new transmission..

thanks for reading my post and all your help is appreciated.

You can't really think of it as a cost to reach a certain horsepower. I mean, yeah you can get a ballpark figure but that's all. Just for a decent engine, expect 400+ on price. As for horsepower. Remember your basics. Better head gasket, ARP studs to hold the crap together, add a nice turbo, and go to town. The VTEC motors will help you squeeze out a bit more power. Also, remember. You need a clutch to hold it all together. Honestly, with an engine swap, you're going to come very close to $2500.

im in close to 1.8g on my vitara build, it should safely net around 350-375 at the wheels, if I wanted to push it, im sure I could go 400-450, however it will be a DD, all I have left really is the cost to tune.

Sound sick. i'm looking to safely get about 300-350 and for only 1.8g 350-375 is great and for a DD thats what i need ha. I have the money and i have a friend who has been a mechanic for most of his life that will help me do everything and teach me as we do it. I just need to figure out what all i need and get it. also what do you suggest for suspension. A friend told me to get coilovers control arms and a chamber kit. but i don't really like how coilovers ride(a bit to bouncy).

 

All these questions might help EJ1 D16 too because it sounds like he wants this too..
