BWAHAHAH

DO NOT GO TO BOOSTFACTOR!!!!!! My friend dropped over 4 grand for a S13 DET swap into his S14 240SX and when he got it back it BARELY EVEN RAN. We had to do so much work to fix their half assed job and it is still only about as fast as my turbo civic. It should be raping my friends JRSC lude.

It was supposed to be done beginning of the summer but it's dragged on to now and it's barely better. His car is a champagne/gold 95 SE i think.

i thought the car was done about a month ago? when did your friend actually brought the car in. i went to boostfactor today and they told me that it took them about a week to do it. they also told me that they want a compression test done but your friend refuse. i don't know what side to believe...all that i know is that all of the other sr20 swap that they did went well and the owners love it. i just don't know

Im in Temple. Guy I work with just had a b16 put in his 95 coupe from a shop in Round Rock called Tyrones Automotive. They just opened about 6 months ago but did an awsome job. He paid $2800 and it included a Mugen computer. And he warrantys the work for 6 months.

Do you know where Tyrone's Automotive is ? I'm from the Killeen area. I heard of someone down in Austin who does cheap engine swaps. Might be the same person. But anyways hook it up man. Thanks.

Oh yea JoTech is a r i p p off like most shops in TX not saying all but alot I've Been to are pretty expensive. Being from CA its much cheaper so of course I'mma whine about it. Well thanks guys. for the info.

From Killeen go S. i-35 and in Round Rock take the 79/Sam Bass exit. Right at the light and follow the windy road over tracks and after a sharp curve to the right there will be like the only left onto a short neiborhood rd. Tyrones is on that rd I think at the end.

Not to sure were to find a turbo around here. I know that theres a few shops in Killeen that order for you but they charge more then ordering it yourself. I havent seen a shop in Central TX that has good deals on parts yet. I usually order all through mags or online.
