Default B18A1 Swap - Recently Overhauled 3k Miles and counting

This is an engine swap. Complete running Longblock w/ LSD transmission. It's freshly rebuilt. If this sells before my JDM B18C, I'll pull this swap for buyer and install my B18C. This item is still being used daily. I drive 36miles to and from work, I got to meets when possible, I've used the car competitively once so far in Vtec Club Road racing. I plan to do so until I swap in a vtec motor or complete my b20 build. The mileage is being accurately tracked and I'm an open book. If you have any questions ask, I will do my best to answer them.


Serious Buyers contact me for more details and warranty terms. I don't not respond on sundays it's family day.


909 728 5033 JOEL

$3,000 B18A1 SWAP w/ "GSR" LSD trans - 3,500 miles since overhaul. It would take more than $3500 to build this setup or have it built. Adding up the major components and machine shop labor I arrived at 3,535. Price is firm.

just some info. I thought I'd share. I know a lot of people see a $3k LS but it's well work it.

DIY SWAP COSTS
jdm b20b $450
Craigslist trans w/ grinds or hot $250-350 w/out $450-650
shift linkage $50-$100
Header Ebay Cheapie $50 Ebay decent $150 Good Header $250
axles $50 used new $150
halfshaft $50
Mounts $100 ebay $150 decent $250 innovative
Harness $50-100
Intake oem $40 aftermarket $50-350
Timing belt water pump $100
—————————————————————
That’s a ebay parts swap at 1200, no installation, no fluids w/ a engine that has 65k+ miles on it. Then let's say you go on to modify it:

intake manifold $80-150
TB $100-150
Cams $150 - 350
cam gears $150
pistons & rings $150
rod bolts $90
gasket kit $100
oil pan $175
ARP Studs $150
OEM Gasket $110
Machine shop bore, hone, resurfacing, valve job, valve seals, crank polishing $300-500
head porting $200-400
port matching $100
Bearings $150
—————————————————————
Now modified we are at 3205, all calculated at the least listed price. Notice it does not include engine assembly labor, engine installation labor, extras like plugs, wires, fluids. These are the bare figures. Assembly labor we will say $500, because that’s logical. Installation we will not post a price, why? Because Backyarders are plenty - so we will say that is “free 99.” With assembly we arrive at $3705. $3705 on a ebay “built” swap. $700 over what I’m asking for a quality brand built swap, Tuned.

I didn't even bother calculating transmission costs. LSD, Clutch, flywheel, overhaul parts and related labor. You get the picture.

Good luck. But that's ITR money for an ls with a bunch oem parts and ebay parts. I don't doubt you would spent more building it, I just don't see it.

Then it's just not meant for you to see. Thanks for the input, I appreciate you stopping by to take a look.

Some key points to look at/consider: Used higher mileage R vs Freshly overhauled LS, buyers choice. At the end of the day, I'm not on the forums with a gun, saying by me now! Simply advertising a full swap for sale. It can hang, chase down and out run may Vtec engines. If a person doesn't know what they are buying then I can totally see how the price wouldn't make sense. Saying you have an R for bragging rights doesn't mean anything if a LS non Vtec is passing you by.

Not interested in separating anything listed here. It will remain as a swap. Whether it sits in my car, or on a garage floor.
