$3,000-$5,000. Doesn't matter if it's an auto - the entire driveline needs to come out anyways. They're heavy and slow, though, even with the almighty GTE.

Those cars have come down a lot. The late model ones (around 01ish I'm guessing) in great condition are still worth some money. I'd love to have one :thumbup:

yeah it has the same motor as the IS with the GE version. unless you are willing to spend about 2,5x the amount you paid for the car to replace the drivetrain and build and boost the motor Id pass on it.

they make like 160-170whp, and weigh in at like 3800 lbs... Tyler's base model civic was dead even with mine.
Maybe with driver. The SC300 ranges from just under to just over 3500lbs, depending on year and trim. The SC400 was 75-100lbs heavier.

I agree with the spirit of what you're saying, though. They aren't break neck fast stock. It wouldn't be any faster than the 240SX.

I still like them, though. I think it's one of the best designs from a Japanese car company. I guess it's an American design, since it came form Calty.

I really just want an extra car to build on that is a good platform to start on. I don't want something ungodly expensive you know

Expensive and 2JZ go hand in hand. You cannot have a "cheap" 2JZ build unless it is either:

A. Slow

or

B. Not reliable

Your looking at around 6 grand for a decent turbo setup then how ever much to build the tranny. Hell, if I were you I would get it just to daily drive unless you plan on throwing down some cash.

dude, you cant even do a 5-speed swap....and if you want a "built" and cant do it yourself, it definitly aint gonna be cheap
