Does anyone know the best place to purchase an SR20DET for an S14, and how much I am looking at to pay for labor?

The GTi-R's are the ones that work in the front wheel drive as well as the Bluebirds.

Both of them were all wheel drive if I remember correctly.

I had my swap done by HeavyThrottle (www.srswap.com), which is also where i bought my car (Jeff was selling his daily driver). I was exceptionally pleased with the work, as well as the prices. He sells his engines complete with stock intercooler and ECU. I paid $2400 for a blacktop. I believe he'll also do price matching. After extensively speaking with him before and during the work I had done, I wouldn't have anybody else touch my car (just my opinion). You can see pictures of thier work, and my car specifically if you go to the site, click on project cars, and mine is project car #2. Good Luck, and highly recommend you call and speak with them before going anywhere I else, I believe they are the most knowledgeable about the SR swap.

He's talking about the RWD S13 chasis (240sx).

Red-Top S13 SR20DET (205hp) 180SX 91-93 and Silvia 91-93
Black-Top S13 SR20DET (205hp) 180SX 94-98
Black-Top S14 SR20DET (220hp) Silvia 95-98
Black-Top S15 SR20DET (250hp) Silvia 99-Current

For the FWD B13 / B14 chasis there are:

Red-Top Bluebird (205hp)
Red-Top GTiR (227)

They did the entire swap for me, here's a list of what I got:
SR20DET
Blitz fmic
Trust 3" downpipe
Spec Star stage 1 clutch (equivalent to ACT)
Walbro high flow fuel pump
Apex'i dual N1 exhaust
Apex'i timer
Apex'i S-AVCR
SVR battery
Autometer 2 1/8 boost and oil pressure guages
TurboXS Type H-34 racing bypass valve
custom hot pipe
custom intake
custom test pipe
Permacool 14" fan

I paid $8k for everything which includes the cost of labor for install. They are located in central NY state.

edit: there is no main difference between the blacktop and redtop, other than the color of the valve cover, both engines have the same specs (power output). It's a really technical and much debated topic as to whether any of the internals are different. The main thing to remember, the blacktop is newer than the redtop. Production of the redtop ceased somewhere around 91, but don't quote me.

For those of us with 1.6L Autos...

We would have to pay for a FWD SR20DET, plus install, plus changing the transmission from auto to manual. That right there usually costs $5000-6000 for a factory SR20DET.

If it wasn't going to cost so much I would have had a SR20DET in my sentra today!

Plus you would also have to replace you axle's, ecu, and wireharness. It's not that easy...remember Dan...we had this talk awhile back. If you want you can stop by the shop and take a look at Tommy's car. He's got a Sentra, but it was originally a 1.6 but he had them switch it out to a SR20de. Now we have it boost'n, and all we have to do is fix some of the stuff that was mess'd up on the car.

Laters,

Hey Duc! Isn't it kinda funny how my parents wanted to have a warranty on stuff and they ended up putting a loan for $4000 for a $2000 warrantied engine, used tranny and all the install parts and then had to get a loan for an additional $2000 for an Aamco tranny? Too bad they wouldnt let me do the SR20DET swap... I told them what would happen, they didn't listen.

Anyone want a GA16DE w/ 20,000 miles?? Anyone want a GA16DE Auto tranny that was just rebuilt? I'd like $4000 for both. You can even take my wiring harness and ecu! Anyone wanna buy my Level 10 stall converter? $350 (I'd only sell the stuff if I knew I could do some kind of a swap for what I'd be getting back.)

Maybe I would settle for a working SR20DE for a while. Maybe I can sell my CAI, NGK Wires, Nology wire amplifier, and exhaust... Better yet, anyone wanna buy my car for $5000 with a 4yr warranty on the motor? and a 6month warranty on the tranny? (Car would not include the swaybars, wheels, strut tower braces, and stereo.)

Well, you have to think of it this way.... I pay $450 a month on my car payment....and $230 on insurance....I am having a heartattack everytime I think about it. Why don't you think I have a SR20det in there already??? If I can sell the S14 then I can get me a S13 for dirt cheap and have enough to play with too. You figure I would have almost $700 a month to play with......lots of goodies....
