Hi guys,

I found this engine with 37.000 miles on it from one of the company in Japan. Anybody knows how this engine fit to our cars? It's complete engine by the way.

It includes "Engine, Wire-harness,ECU unit,Transistor-ignitor, Power-sterring pump,Climate-control compressor,and Alternator. The compression ratio is 12.5(Best condition)."
This is a complete engine kits for swapping.

Let me know, cause I have to notify them as soon as possible.

Secondly, How much does this engine usually cost? (keep in mind, the engine has 37.000 miles)

Thank you guys!

Ceto

you're going to find out that all of your pricing and optimism is far from correct

I was going to mention something about that compression ratio as well... 12.5:1 is unheard of unless the motor was been worked.

I don't know about the compression thing. I don't really understand about it. Is that related to the ECU thing? If it does, cause it comes with it.

BTW, the exact price is $2800 shipped. How's that price IS300GTE? Since you have that swapped, I think you know about the price!

Thank's guys!

Its relative to the octane of US fuel relative to that in japan. Fuel is japan is higher so the compression on engines there is also usually higher. 11.5 : 1 is more or less the limit in the US a little higher depending on where you are in the country.
