I found a S202 engine and was wondering if the extra money it costs is worth it?
depends on how much extra. that kind of number can easily be achieved on any jdm motor.
The s202 motor will be:
blueprinted and balanced
vf34 turbo (ball bearing)
Expensive red turbo inlet (which there is a recall on)
special oil cooler package
