Default where to buy?

where is a good place to buy a usdm ej20t? ebay doesn't seem to have any usdm ones and the jdm ones are all horribly overpriced and don't come w/ things important to the swap like intercooler, and xmember, etc

someone said in one of the threads i read that the parts shouldn't cost more than 1500 dollars... but i havent' found anything anywhere close to this
do you guys know something i don't?(probably)

Wow, I dont know about $1500.. maybe for an EJ25 swap. I have been fairly lucky and am hoping to do mine close to 2k by the time I'm done and thats after I sell my EJ25 setup. However I am replacing things like oil & h2o pumps, t belt, several gaskets, f & R main seals, ect.

I would suggest you find a wrecked WRX and buy that. You can swap in motor, and sell things like tranny back, interior, ect and recoup some of your loss. My prob is I wouldnt know where to look for one?

I'm trying to figure something out, but those prices seem high?

Most of those engines include no turbo, injectors, and more importantly the wiring meaning to complete them you need those parts which can run you 2-3k. Doesn't seem like a great deal to me. Somebody call me out because I would like to believe otherwise. Thanks

i originally had an engine, that turned out to be fubar. The one thats currently in the car i bought from a member on here.. And it runs great. I got it for 700, but was lacking alot of parts.

So needless to say, search around on here, you can usually find some decent deals, just a matter of gettin it shipped becomes a pain, for you or them. depending.

Some of the V7/V8 stuff seems high ya, but $1400 for a WRX engine with like no miles on it seems good to me... Turbos and intercoolers and piping can be had for cheap, so thats not a big deal. And the two N/A motors, with no miles, for under $1000!? Thats crazy...
