Actually the opposite is true. A JDM motor will be quite a bit less.rpone605 said:jdm ej20 will cost alot while a usdm ej20 would be considerably cheaper..but expect to drop around 5-10k to do a motor/tranny/ecu swap.
Dude for that price I can buy a Focus SVT and drop a jackson Supercharger and Spank WRX all day while at the same time do it very reliably...(I'm going to get hell for that comment)HighTachPres said:New WRX = $25,000 (come with nifty neon headlights)
Used RS w/ ej20 install = $15,000-$20,000 (.. not mistaken as an Echo or a Neon)
A neon no dude a Ford Focus SVT I hate to admit it but those little cars are wicked fast! I drove my friends supercharged SVT that thing is fucking sick!impreza01 said:I would just turbo a RS, but then what do I do when it is time to SMOG? And what do I do about the weak tranny the RS comes with? I am doing the STI engine and tranny swap, and the best way to do it is to save $$.
Frank, why in hell would u want a Dodge Neon? Are you trying to get your self beat to a bloody pulp?
