hi all,finally found someone who can do the conversion for me, he has a b16a2 engine with s80 gearbox and rear hubs etc, is going to do the engine plus fitting for 1800, is that a decent price?

Ah the price of th labour is pretty good, the price of the engine isn't so great. Unless its a LSD box?

yeah the labour is rather chep with the engine being expensive, so it sorta weights itself really. i would say its not too bad a price for it all in!!

but check arround tho and find out how many he's done and are people sattisfied with him, it he doesn't do many then i'd say try and barter him down on price a bit, all my own oppinion tho

like mentioned if your happy with the price then go for it, converting a dx is a lot of work, but a 1000 for a b16a2 is expensive! they usually go between £300-£650, i have one i might be selling for £450 and its mint! just dont want to sell it really but if i cant find a job soon then shes going
