Default Any JDM swap shops in the mid-atlantic?

Becides RalliSpec? I'm sitting on money to do this swap but I cant get the to return my phone calls. Is there neone else within 300 miles of Baltimore that can do a JDM drivetrain swap...and have it work?

We could assemble the Mid-A dream team of engine swaps. You don't have time to do this swap yourself? Many people here have done their own swaps and would love to help you out.

Man I'm in the middle of a divorce, selling my house, I live 45 min from work, and my garage isnt big enough to do this (its a tiny townhouse garage). Otherwise I would certainly do it. I mean if I had a place locally to take over for a month or two im sure that I could figure it out...but im just a big scater brain right now - plus I have a 70 440 cuda project going on in Pottstown PA.

I'm fine with whoever so long as it gets done and works..LOL

If you have the carcass from the donor its really easy to do the mechanicals and then just rent a trailor and tow it to Rallispec for the wiring. The mechanicals are a super easy swap.

Trailer it to Rallispec for the wiring, I mean that is probably the only thing that would hold me back from doing myself down the road. If that can be done the mechanical part is easy in my mind, just as long as you have all the tools

Well its gonna be fairly stright forward...however the exact peices are still up in the air. As of now I am looking at 3 motors (v8 twinscroll, v7, USDM STI) but I am leaning towards the v7 so that I can afford a 6 speed. Now with the 6 speed I was told from ONE good sources that the axles don't need swapped...im guessing that is true for a non-dccd tranny, which is what I am looking at. IF the 6 speed happens then I am looking at just swapping the drop gear on the on the tranny to a 3.45 and keeping the stock rear pumpkin, or leaving it alone and sticking the RA set in the rear.

Confused yet?

basically I have a budget...im tryin to squeeze as much out of it as possible and am still trying to figure out this drivetrain mess.

Still down with helping -

Call James (StillBoostin) at Hook It Up performance in Edgewood Maryland. 410-612-0600. They just did a complete JDM, including right hand drive on an Acura. Real nice work there....
