Default I need someone to mount up my Block!

Anyone know of any mechanics or hell you guys in the houston area that will change out my block on my 2.0 wrx. It is the same block so it is a direct swap. My mechanic wants to charge me $700 to do it and I don't have that much money. Pls anyone who knows and can help me I would really appreciate it. And if you know how much pls put that too just so I know. Thanks guys!

Thats a pretty broad statement. Are we talking a long block or are you pulling the heads off and putting them on the new block?

Yeah really doesn't sound that bad. Remove motor, swap heads, swap other misc. items, time it up and throw it back in. Sounds like a decent deal.

for 700, I'd let them do it. I have done this twice (once for me and a friend) and would not want to do it again, atleast not in this heat...
