I am not sure what he charges for the swap. I think the last I heard was around $8-10K for it. This included motor, transmission, and then the labor to do the install. I am not sure on what he does to the front suspension but I can tell you that his car handles like it still has the S14 still in it. I always thought the same as you guys about the 6-cyl. being too heavy for that car. But it is not. You know what though. YOu are saying that a straight swap would not make the car handle that well. YOu might be right on that as everybody I know that does this to their car also does suspension work to it also. Everyone I have ever ridden in have had a stiffer suspension than stock on them. So I cannot comment on a stock suspension with this engine. But I would bet on his car on the track anyday. It is just really smooth and a very predictable car. I have even considered selling my E36 M3 and buying an E30 M3 and doing this. It is that great. If you want some info just give Juston a call at (404)210-3217. Leave him a message as he is usually very busy and he will call you back.

: But how much does he charge for this conversion. I'll bet you he doesn't leave the front suspension alone.
: I've seen M50 powered M3's, I somehow doubt the S50US which is almost identical is any lighter. The car does not handle well with a straight swap.
