If you price out all the parts needed for an s52 swap and pay a shop to do it (around 30-40 man hours, top to bottom, wiring, exhaust, oil pan swap etc), an s52 swap suddenly doesn't look so great.
        I dont wanna crap in this thread but a decent s52 can still be had for 2-3gs. All the gaskets can be replaced and swapped in by any home mechanic. You dont need to pay a shop to do it. You probably will need a shop to do a m20 head, dyno tune it, and maybe any motor work for increased displacement.

          Right on. Apples to apples. This client didn't "need" to have us do the labor/installation work, but if you can afford it, why not have a shop do it and have a warranty? If you did the work yourself and brought your m20 to a machine shop with parts pistons and crank you provide, $2-3k into your m20 will get you a long way. Simply putting new OE+.5mm pistons ($600), machine work ($6-800 pending location), cam ($350-550 pending brand) and an 84mm crank ($300-ish), putting that same $2-3k into your m20 can be produce similar results as a swap, when/if the car owner does a majority of the work themselves. I often squeak 200+ out of a stroked m20 with a stock manifold and good cam, so the ITB's aren't even needed to reach stock s52 power levels.

          Yeah, this could go round and round all day lol. I still love my m20, but also cater to the 24v baby 6's at work, too.

                Touring, 325, Air conditioning: Probably will bring some big money.

                  Guys don't talk about that one, I want it.

                  Ok, I don't have the money just yet, and it will likely go for far more than I'd feel comfortable paying but... it's local and I want it, bad.

                            That touring that is local to me went for $25k. I think that's a win for both seller and buyer.

                            I read it's headed to the PNW (bidding comments), maybe it will be at the Picnic.
