I've got a 2.0L SPI right now and want to drop in a SVT with a Getrag tranny with it. About how much do you guys think this would cost and if anyone is parting out a SVT and want to sell their engine?
reason why i swapped was because of the insurance... i have all the svt features and specs other than a hatchback shell lol.. made the car unique in a way... but yea since i was 18 when i did the swap, it was much cheaper for me on insurance being that it wouldve costed me 5500 a yr for an svt and now its only 1500 lol so yea big difference and i still get the svt performanceI would amost suggest just buying a SVT rather than swapping just the motor and tranny, unless you have a sedan type car and dont like the hatch back style. Pulling the motor and replacing should only take a weekend), but switching to a svt gives you the better suspension, the sporty interior(which I like), the outside styling, ect, ect.
If your going for a sleeper though or something along those lines and that is why you want the stock look of a LX I would think you would be able to find the engine/tranny combo for around $3000 and then you would have to do all the work yourself(that is just a guess however since I have never done this).
