Em2 Engine Swap

Hey Guys,

I am looking for a shop willing to do a h22 swap into my 2002 Civic. I know its been done at least once before using custom mounts, and I have heard of a shop quoting 3k to do it. I am considering going h22 because a k swap is waaayyy to expensive, screw $600 mounts. I would like to do an at/mt swap in the process. If someone could give me an idea (within a thousand dollars say), then please message me!

Very serious about doing this in the near future as my at is dying.

Thanks.

In the end wouldn't it be MORE expensive than the K?

I'm just wondering because you're asking about the motor, a manual tranny, an auto to manual tranny, the wiring labor, the CUSTOM mounts, and other misc stuff to get it to fit.

I'm almost certain it would less.
The K requires 7-8 thousand dollars in parts, plus labor.

The H motor is a $2000 less than the K minimum, and all misc parts are less as well. I would need to do auto to manual for either swap. I expect the wiring labor might cost a bit more, but k mounts are $600 and I don't think modifying a set of mounts for mine would cost more than that. I could be totally wrong though!

My understanding is that law only applies in states, am I wrong?

Don't want to sound like a noob, but I have another question that you guys might be able to answer.

I understand that if go K the least expensive approach is to buy a complete car with a DO title, rather than buying the parts individually. Does anyone have an idea who I could purchase the car from, and roughly how much it would cost?
