Anyone ever dealt with Showdown Motorsports in Toledo, OH? http://www.showdownmotorsports.com/

I am considering doing a motor-swap and I am far from mechanically inclined. (I bleed changing my spark plugs). I want to find a place that can do good work dropping a B18C5 in my 99 EX.

Mid-West Recommendations?

Hmotorsonline. Quick and easy, pretty good prices and fast shipping.

Only negative is the charge for paying with a credit card.

Speedmachineracing.com talk to Matt. Good prices and service. Hooked up with a JDM B18C Type R. Came complete with mounts linkage ECU $4500. Install was $600 + some parts. Runs like a freed mental patient with no codes.

I bought my JDM B18C Type R from www.inlinefour.com. It runs great. Complete drop in for $5000. (They have now changed the price to $5900.)

I got my ZC w/ tranny from nippon-motors.com, but I was unhappy with how long it took to ship, I am about to order myself a JDM d15b vtec from alljapaneseengines.com for really cheap, I'll let you all know how I like the process with them. Their rep was hella cool, he called me back promptly and gave me the info I was looking for (such as if it was the OBD1 vtec or OBD2 3-stage vtec).

I got all my stuff from the junk yard...except for all the internals that I got from all over the face of the earth. And for the B16 head, I got that from flash options.
