    that has been a daily driver for over a year now.

    What is it worth with 20k miles on the swap?

    i have one and I think anything around 15k is fair. of course the motor and install etc is 10k easy on top of the original cost of the car but seeing how modded cars usually dont go for much more, 15k sounds fair. everything working fine and all i take it? try to find out who did the swap and if there is anything wrong with it.

    I plan on picking a stock 2.5RS up this summer and using it to commute to school and swapping when I'm done or when the engine dies (not likely)

    east coast swappers did the swap. I contacted them. When I get them on the phone, I will send the deposit.

    This one is a little bit more, but it's an exceptional example and has the sti 6 speed transmission, which is a more costly swap than the 5 speed from the GC cars.

    I'm going to do it, I think.

    I'm out of the country, but I'm returning to the US and will be storing the car until I get back.
