i know our legends run forever, but just in case the one i'm looking at doesn't, i need a figure. i'm guessing $4K. close? it'd be on a type 2 engine, basically a 94 ls coupe (6-speed). it has 140K miles on it, so i want to make sure i have enough cash to do work to it. thanks andrew

A questionable motor will run $3k+ from a boneyard.Rebuild much more. Trans ?? ask TJ Miles. The problem is finding them.

I somehow deleted my link to the place I got my used tranny. They had three of four at the time. I had to replace mine and it cost me a wopping 350 bucks! That is not a typo! 90,000 miles and I got it shipped from cali to wyo for 100.00. Local Honda dealer put it in and the whole thing cost me with a new tranny mount a tad over a grand. That's tranny, installation, and mount. I've had no problems since then. Look around and you'll find one no prob.

Many folks suggest getting lower mileage used parts over rebuilt. The rebuilt ones may contain parts which are not as good as OEM. With a used, you get Honda OEM quality.

I've been checking around and the rebuilds cost from 2500 to 3000. Getting a Type II motor is anywhere between 800 and 1500 and installing it i got quotes from 500-1200. I've shopped around quite a bit and going to probably doing the Type II conversion towards the end of summer. Just hope I have enough $$ saved up for the job :D

You are absolutely right.
It is better to find a low mileage combo, vs rebuilding...you never know what you are getting, UNLESS you have a HOT SHOT mech with a 3 year wty.

I did the conversion, and this included motor mounts, tranny mounts, 90k service, seals, and a few other odds and ends (50k Type II motor/tranny :D) and I walked out the door at $4000. Parts, Labor and Tax..
