Oh my god, bro, you are right next door!!!
I got my motor from Miami.
I drove down 3.5 hours to pick it up. Well worth it.
Its on and Im loving it. Are you doing the swap yourself?
If not I know someone who can.
The engine will cost around 6 bills. $600.
Let me know and I'll hook you up.
If you have any questions feel free to ask.
I just got done with the swap last night.

I know the "MAN" that can do it.
He does it part time so it takes him a while. But I tell you what, My swap came out SPECTACULAR!!! It was cleaned and shined and done right. Call up Jay Whitely here in Tampa @ (Tampa)-546-3524. Real cool young guy. Tell him Jonathan sent ya!!
He can answer alot of questions too. I redid all my seals and gave the engine a hell-ified tune up while it was off. As well as get a new clutch and throttle cable. For parts I would call up brain at www.courtesyparts.com
Talk to brian.
He knows about SE-Rs.
I ordered all my parts thru him and got all the right pieces.
They are in Texas so it takes a few days for parts to get here, but why not support a SE-R friendly place. :D :cool:

I'll have pics of my swap tonight in the general forum.

I have a feeling Se-Rious Racer's motor is another victim of the Go-Go Juice. Do what I did when i blew my motor in my 96', go DET. Nothing like boost...you could get a nice bluebird with turbo and everything for a cool 1500-2000, maybe less or more I don't know...but go Boost!

If you need a Primera engine that I got from SOKO but decided not to do the swap. I'm in Lakeland, FL and I'll sell it to you at cost. It is very clean.

I received my BB motor from Andres in Miami. Jay Whitely and I took off the valve cover and bling you can see yourself in the head...Very clean motor. He took off the AWD tranny, welded on some studs and shaved the oil pan. Very nice job. My motor came off a 96 so no top mount intercooler. I'm sure he has some top mount ones in stock. paid $2000 for it. I'm sure he has a GTiR motor laying around to so you can ask him on the price for that if you want.
