thats super optimistic. ive seen complete z6 swaps hang out for 6 months online for $500 then get sold for $450.

either way a z1 swap should be super cheap

I was happy to pay what I paid. Not only is my engine low mileage (under 60k miles) but it had all of the sensors (minus 1) AND it has a one year warranty.

Not that I need it since it's just been sitting in my garage, but whatever.

your really paying for peace

your really paying for peace of mind, and it is well worth it in your circumstance.

however selling a d16z6 swap for $800 does not come with the peace of mind... you see my point?

Absolutely. I actually tried to get a cheap z1 swap but no one was selling one. Or, no one would ship it to me.

I then bought a cylinder head and was planning on doing a mini-me, but then I realized that my compression ratio would be over 12:1. So much for saving on gas.

For a brief instant I considered getting a spare block and buying new p07 pistons/rods/etc and making a z1 engine.

The total cost was going to be more than just buying the engine. So I chose the engine.

Sold the cylinder head for a ridiculously low amount of money.

The swap will begin tomorrow

I have this week off of work. I'm hoping that this week unfolds as follows:

Monday
  • Get lower ball joint buller and punch for the b-pin from autozone.
  • Rent hoist from autozone
  • Drive n600 to the autoshop and get safety inspection
  • Drive civic to DMV and get new title/registration on n600
  • Go to Junkyard and maybe get SVOBoy rear tranny mount - look for anything worthwhile when I am there.
  • Get new sprinkler heads at Home Depot
  • Go home - remove b-pin and axle bolts - maybe remove axles
  • Put new springler heads in the backyard.
  • Go to family event
Tuesday
  • Remove Engine
  • Go to friend's wedding and party afterwards
Wednesday
  • change wiring on my car while the engine is out. I will be upgrading from obd0 to obd1. I will also be upgrading from Dual Point Fuel Injection to Multi-Point Fuel Injection.
  • Double check everything on the new engine. Ensure that crank pulley is torqued properly.
Thursday
  • Drop in the new engine
  • Reattach axles and make sure wiring is right
Friday
  • figure out why the car won't start
  • re-do anything I did wrong or forgot to do
  • Drive around town to make sure it works and to get an idea of my new fuel economy
Saturday
  • If all goes according to plan. return the engine hoist
I may end up buying an engine hoist instead of just renting one. You never know when you might need one of these things, especially if you're a backyard mechanic.

Wish me luck. Tomorrow is going to be a big day.

HA! I've got a wedding this saturday then I'm going to go finish my 5-speed conversion!

I would just buy the hoist if you can afford it. I got mine from Pep-Boys for $120 and it has been INVALUABLE.

LUCK!

If they are that cheap I'll definately get one. I've only seen them for $200 at autozone or Harbor Freight.
