I saw a list of parts for the swap (not including motor) that ran up to over 3k. That was partial new parts, and partial used. You can probably do it for less, but it's an expensive swap either way.

Here's the list, and the best writeup I know of: http://www.xproductionz.com/k20swap/k20swap.html

[sm=ummmmokay.gif] ???? First you need to learn to write...Im guessing it shouldnt cost more than the engine, Have you done some research? Well anyways probably this might help you http://www.k20a.org get more info.
