Wished i got the si version. But i was on a budget enough to get a EX.
so i'm wondering if anyone swapped the engine the r18 with a k20z3? if so how much did you spend and post pictures.

Someone did something similiar and spent nearly 15k in the process. Seriously, swapping out a brand new motor is just dumb. You'd honestly save yourself time, money, headache after headache and more importantly.. saving yourself from a car that has no resale-value future (swapped motor doesn't exactly sound encouraging) by just trading in and buying an SI. Maybe I could see if you had a blown engine or something.. but a perfectly good, brand new engine? Nah

hes right no point in swapping out a perfectly good engine. just wait like the rest of us when these swaps become more common, by then your engine would be in the 100km's mark, so it would make sense to swap out then. imo

You were on a budget to begin with, So why even ask? You would save money by just trading your car in for the Si...
