Are you planning on doing all the work yourself? I was not much older than you my first time I swapped a car. Planned to do it in 2 months. Took 10 lol. Just finished my ls3 swapped s15 and even that took longer than expected. 6 months for this one.

Obviously im gonna need help but when i really feel i need it, i mean theres step by steps here that i can use. But like i said this is something i plan on doing during the summer. I have summer school and longer shifts so it will probably be hard to fit in time to work on it but ill manage, because im a pretty dedicated guy. Especially when it comes to cars.

So my parents are getting me $5k loan instead and ill pay it back in time, so my plan is with that $5k buy the engine and tranny, mounts, wiring, and all the other things ill need. Like i said my plan is to just get it running, so ill only buy what's necessary and cut corners. Everyones gonna have an opinion on this but its how im doing it.

There's alot of little things you don't realize you need until you start doing the swap. It adds up quick trust me. What ever you think your gonna spend on the swap, multiply it by at least 1.5

You don't need a build thread. You need advise from people who can make this easier for you. Parts list first then build thread while you build. It's all in the prep man.

Im doing a 2jz swap currently into an s14 and im spending way more than I anticipated due to me wanting the best of everything. I have a good career that allows me to do that but you don't. Be smart man don't get in over your head. Remember you are working on a 20yr old car, everything has to be replaced...

Of course man, I understand the time and money that goes into a swap, i mean i had to turn down the $800 shell because of too many things that need replacing. What im doing now is looking at a bone stock shell for $1k and picking out parts, seeing what i need and what i dont.

Alot of my parts will be from cx racing, engine and tranny mounts, fmic + bov, and downpipe with a catback. Ill be getting a wiring harness from wiring specialties and a local shop will be making me a custom driveshaft. Ill have to wait till i get the engine until i can add more things. Please feel free to add on what you feel is necessary.

Make sure to do your research on all these parts before you get stuck with crappy stuff...

Quick update: Found an sr20 s14, for a steal of a price, and im thinking of dailying it while i get parts ready for an rb but honestly i might just get a big turbo for the sr and call it a day, thats only if the rb becomes financially impossible.

I was feeling particularly rich the day i started this thread, but i dont have too much so id like to cut corners where i can, plus im keeping the motor stock so i dont have to worry about getting performance parts like an expensive ecu, id rather go a z32 ecu and get a tune. So yea oem or close to oem parts.
