Wassup guys?!!! How much is my Ls/vtec worth? Its the first gen B18a with 2nd gen B16 Head with gsr cams, port and polished, 3 angle job, all new seals, and Gsr trans with Phantom grip sort of like a LSD, with excedy clutch with Fidanza flywheel (7.8lbs)....
going get rid of it because of B20vtec swap :-D

thanks

I'll give ya 200 for it.

thats not a typo either.


Realistically though, personally, I would treat buying a modded engine as buying a modded car.
Price value goes down IMO. So, about the price of a straight LS swap is about all I'd say its worth.

how many miles on it? I really don't think they're worth a whole lot.

i'm afraid i'm going to have to agree with 95civicex on this one. buying someone else's build = no good. never can tell what may be wrong. no offense, just a truth that i learned the hard way.

and why would you ditch an LS/VTEC, for a shitty B20 VTEC? You know that all a B20 is, is bored out stock LS sleeves...... so why build a weaker engine? And if you say you're going to sleeve it.... why not just keep the LS/VTEC? Sleeve that.

but anyway, these guys are right, unless you have receipts from a reputable shop for every part, seal, bearing, and can prove that the motor is legit, then you're gonna have a hard time selling it for very much. People don't want to spend a grip of money, and then the motor blows up. I'll give you 500 for the swap.
