Looking to keep the swap as simple as possible, will a spec c conversion add complexity ? Just looking for some wisdom from guys that have done a jdm engine swap, comments welcome. Help me understand better. I've searched nasioc for hours, just need a little more personal feedback. I Understand I'll have to use a jdm ecu and do some additional wiring. What else Do I need to know?
Thanks in advance for your time and input.

Hey Doug,

The V8\V8 spec C are no different in install complexity (easy).
Good call in Japan Domestic Motors, they are a standup vendor and very easy to work with.
