The car was a 2.0 before the swap... I had a shop do the install, prices vary for swaps depending on how much you want to do!!! like tranny swap, wiring and so on!! My car took quite a bit of time due to the Turbo set up...

You wanna make sure the wiring is correct to the T, no shortcuts!!!! tranny, axles and so on have to be accounted for.

for a estimated price on a basic vr swap professionally installed - it's safe to plan on 4000.00 and quite a bit more for parts!

If you can do it yourself you can save ton's of money, but finding out that you need additional parts and getting hit with an lack of patience is somthing that will make any man wish he had a professional shop do the work!!!
