Yes you can swap that into your car I believe. What condition is the engine in? How much did you pay for it? And make sure it runs fine before going through the hassel of install it into your car.

yes you can do it...but it might be a little harder to do it in canada than in the states. is there an SiR EK up there? if there is you need the rear mount out of that. if not, then you might need to work your way down to the states and get a rear mount out of one of our SIs....or suck it up and spend a few hundred on aftermarket mounts.

Well I guess the engines been driven hard then if it was in a street race. But with only 33k clicks it shouldn't be bad at all. BTW I don't find Canada bad for aftermarket parts at all. You just have to know where to look or who to ask and if you have an Internet connection it doesn't matter if you live in Canada or anywhere in the world.. except for a little added cost in shipping here and there .
