^ james speaks the truth. some ppl bitch about the CS price for a GTX, but compared to the rest of the import engine world, we have it good.

SOMETIMES, read: rarely you can find a GTX engine and trans on ebay or someplace and sell off the awd trans. that helps offset the cost.

either way, SPIs can be had for $400 or less. if its a $400 motor it had best better have less than 100k miles on it too.

JDM motors usually have around 20-30k miles on it because of the two year rule they have over there. Crazy buggers.

I'd buy a jdm GTX if I didn't have this entire BPZE block sitting in my damned kitchen.

My first 1.9 turbo had 120k, did fine and is still running today. Now I have 90k on the block and 116k on the SPI head, been taking 16psi for a while now, so far so good.
Just do a compression check.
