I am getting a 95 Integra LS from one of my buddies. He blew the engine and wants to give it to me for $300. I was quoted by a local speed shop $2.5-2.8k to drop in an LS engine, or $4-4.5k for a VTEC engine. THey also said I could go with a turboed LS engine for about the same price as the VTEC swap.

I currently have a Nissan Maxima and I could drop the $4000 on a turbo kit from the same speed shop. With the Maxima kit I could easily be putting down ~350FWHP/TQ.

I am sure I may hear some biased opinions since I am on an Integra forum. Here is the web site for the speed shop www.PFIspeed.com

Also another question I had. Will the LS driveline(axles) support the VTEC swap or the turbo LS, given I have the proper clutch?

I hate to say it, but put down with the maxima. If im not mistaken, they are inline 6? That would own just about any teg if you can stand the looks of a maxima...
I love the Maxima, and it has tons of power as it is right now, but I don't own it staight out, so it is costing me every month. I take 16 credits at Colorado State U., so I can only work part time. That doesn't leave me with much money to mod both cars.
BTW, it has a 3L v6 (VQ30DE).

Those stock maximas put out like 220horse. That's a lot, but they are heavy. A single turbo on a honda is going to be wayyy more efficient.

Bro, I am also taking 18 Cr hours in enginnering- save your money for now and buy a good car when you graduate. it ain't worth the hassle IMO.

No i think he meant the actual car without the engine, hence the speed shop quoting him prices to drop in an engine.

BTW... feel your pain on the college/no money thing, i'll be back in that situation in 4 weeks going from working 50 hours a week to taking 16 credits. Guess its supposed to pay off in the end, or something ha.

For $300 bucks the integra will be a hell of alot cheaper putting in a turbo motor or LS/Vtec you could build a rocket for less than the cost of a turbo on your maxima, but in the end its up to you.

Uhm, why would you put a honda motor into a maxima, that is already faster than an integra? hook up the maxima.. You dont have to have an integra motor to be fast..

---EDIT---
Just reread your post, if your getting an entire integra out of the deal.. Go for it.. But if its just the motor, a LS block in good shape can be found for 600-900.. If its the car go for it, if it the motor.. screw it..

Why don't you steal the maxima engine and put it in the integra and sell the bone left overs of the maxima? That way you can get a integra with decent 220 hp? heh jk..

300 for a 95 LS + 4.5k for a good engine is one good price. I had to pay 7500 for my LS 96 AT.
