    Fuck that! I would do it myself. Its not that hard just make sure you do alot of reading so you know what your doing.

    You can pick up a D14 for buttons, hell you could use a D16 and that would go straight in. It shouldnt take more than a day. so were they have got 600 from is beond me.

    Also I would trust H22D EK with my car more than a bloody rip off garrgae.

    haggis has a jeremy beadle hand transplantz.

    600 is cheap for a garage to supply and fit an engine provided they do it properly, I would be this much....

    don't you have to change the interior loom for the D16 swap?
  17. Smiley Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    or atleast ad wires for VTEC and sensors
  18. DanF Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    Not the interior loom as far as im aware, just wire in VTEC. tbh its a pain. Its easier to put a B series in.
  19. Smiley Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    why would it be easier? you can use original engine mounts, gearbox. gear linkage etc on a d-series swap. it all needs changing for a B SWAP
