Oh yeah that definitely is closer to $3500 depending on what the hourly for labor the shop is billing out.

Ideally, one would want their engine work to be done well. If people recommend dude then don’t go elsewhere.

Understood. Look up reviews on the shop, etc. Engine swap is basically a heart transplant. I made sure to bring my whip to a mechanic certified with my vehicle’s manufacturer.

Agreed 100%

Check on the batter terminal recall and started recalls to make sure the VIN from the donor car doesn't have the recalls. They are pretty easy to fix and you can take to the stealership and they will take care of it.

Nothing to do with poverty It just makes better financial sense to replace the motor

Junk price they offered was $1000, if the cars running i can sell it for $12-14000

And while i wait I’m driving my 2nd car

its my old 06 accord that I gave to my sister when I bought the newer coupe, but she bought a new car and gave it to my nephew

she works from home and doesn't drive much so my nephew drives her car and I took my old car back

I still pay the insurance on it anyways

You are going to spend around $3k, that’s normal. I’m a retired very skilled mechanic & i still wasn’t ready to do installs myself. Spend the money to get it done properly.
