I found a JDM B20A for $400!! It doesn't have an intake or exhaust but thanks to 87accordlxi's post, that can be taken care of. There is a catch though......no tranny. But get this, the guy at the importer says that he already sold the tranny off the JDM B20A to put it on a B20A5. Now, at first I thought there was a communication problem b/c this guy is straight outta Japan and speaks w/ a HEAVY accent and broken English. This guy says he's been doing it for years and guarantees that the B20A5 tranny will mate to the JDM B20A. He said he's so confident that he'll mate the tranny to the block right there in front of me if i buy the engine and tranny from him.
What do you guys think?
P.S. If I bought the engine and tranny together, I would be looking at 700 for the swap. Too much?
