    Why don't you call Japan Power and ask Japan Power what Japan Power would charge to put a B20 into an EL.

    Or you could buy a cooler car.

    So you'd rather waste $2000+ on a slow B20 EL?

    I'd encourage you to check out other places like Extreme Auto Care (Todd), Autovation (Derek). Check out Japan Power - sorry I don't know who to talk to there. Ask to see examples of their work. Compare the results. Talk to the mechanic and get them to explain the process. Make sure each shop has a licensed tech, make sure they're insured. All the basics that apply. Once you've checked things out make your decision.

    It makes for a fun reliable car that's still good on gas. That's 40hp and a lot more torque than it came with.
