WOW...I didn't even realize this...but corksport sells the GTX motor for $1150 bucks...had I known that I would have had one instead of trying to build my spare 1.8.... (I knew they sold it, but not for THAT cheap...)

http://www.corksport.com/

I've been to this site numerous times but I never thought to look in the JDM engines...

1150 for a low mileage JDM motor with 180 hp is simply UNHEARD OF in the Honda world.

A JDM B16a Civic Type R motor with 170 hp would cost you upwards of 3000 bucks, while a B18c1 JDM GSR motor would cost you 3500-4000 bucks.

I want a 2G GT so bad just so I can get a GTX and swap the hell outta it... yummy...

JDM B16A1's with the ECU and transaxle can be found on hmotorsonline.com on a regular basis for well under $1500.

Don't get me wrong, it's a good price, but it's right on par with Honda engines..

Until you start talking B18C5's 'n H22's 'n ish.

:) The guy only paid like $2100 for parts AND labor to have the JDM B16 installed in that POS Integra i used to have.

I dunno where you got "A1" from but... as you can see... there are no motors under 1250. :p

1150 for a 180 hp motor is simply the best deal I've seen for a JDM motor with around 30k miles on it, even if the ECU isn't included with the GTX, it's still a steal In my opinion.

Not to mention the BPD8, GTX, and GTR have a better power curve, power band, and have MUCH MUCH more torque (I believe the GTX comes with 180 ft lbs as well.) For the cheapest B16a SIR II motor, you only get 111 ft lbs.

JDM GTX >>> JDM B16a SIR II motor

James, now that you're a Hondite maybe you can fill me in on something:

Why would someone spend $3000 and go through all the headaches of installing a B16a rated at 170hp under Japanese emissions standards when they could swap in the B18c(?) from any ole USDM GSR and get 170 CARB legal hp :?:

The GTX Motor is 600$ (Without Tranny) at osaka motors... It comes with the turbo but i don't think it comes with the wiring and ecu. I wonder how much it would cost to ship a motor in the states...

Osaka motors is a shop located in Montreal, Quebec province in Canada...its 20 min from my home and this place ROCKS!

you can find whatever JDM motors you need...from civic frontclips to 240 SX front clip, to skyline GTR32 to mitsubishi...to toyota supra...

their supply depot is pretty big and they have a lot of engines in good shape..they usually ship in USA...you only have to ask them to....

i think its 1100 US $ for 1,8 L Turbo WITH AWD transmission...

I know that.. but it's of no use to us, is it?
He wrote WITH in all capital letters like it was a good deal.. ? I wanted to know if we could use that, and if it was of any use to us.. If we could use it, I imagine it'd just be extra weight since we don't exactly have a rear end..

Because believe it or not, it's actually cheaper to get a jdm b16a. :)

Yes, but Osaka motors has a horrid reputation and NOBODY on hondaswap recommends using them. However, Hmotorsonline has an AWESOME reputation and i have never heard one complaint about them.

They tell you right on the website that hit's a direct bolt into a 90-95 Escort GT.

JDM GTXs are just like 323 GTXs, the engines sit like FWD vehicles, so they'll bolt right onto your BPD8 tranny.

Actually, we can use it. Remember ford laser uses same frame and everything we do. Just need to move/modify things and get the rear end and driveshaft and its possible to make it AWD. I was looking into it for a while back in August when i was gonna buy GTX. I was gonna do like supra's do and plug the front part of the tranny and make it RWD. But yeh, just get some undershots of a laser and you can see what needs to be moved to make room for the driveshaft.

making your scort into awd would mean cutting a passage for the driveshaft and moving the gas tank out of the way. Might have to modify both the front and rear suspension to get everything to fit right as well.
