to do a swap? any motor swap will require extensive welding , fabricating , cutting.

Hotb is right. Youll need to fabricate mounts, lines, etc. A lot of experimenting will be needed.

If you are going to be the first to do the swap expect to dish out about $15-20gs. If you dont have that cash in hand, then you might as well look at other options.

And where would this come from? If its around $7k, what are you waiting for? lol. These newer motors are harder to come by. Expect to pay around $5-6k for a good engine. You also get what you pay for in labor, fab quality, etc. Also, if you been in this hobby for a while you know nothing ever goes as planned. Expect to spend some extra $

engine, trans, labor, lines, fittings, fabrication, etc. The fabrication is what is going to cost. Im sure there are companies out there that can get it to work. Im really anal when it comes to things like that so I guess thats where the price differences are.

no honduh should be soo much. they have mount kits for almost all motors. and k20 is huge and not so much worth it imo.

We have done plenty of swaps for under $4k, heck even under $3k. It all depends on the year, model or the car, etc. H and B are so common now, its much cheaper. The K is nice but overpriced and maybe even overhyped. Turbo a B18 and youll kill the K20.

MY JDM DOHC ZC engine/tranny/ECU Swap in my CRX was around 2000. Isn't there another Toyota engine in the same family as the xB engine that could be at least close to direct replacement?

Wow... I bet those would really make the xB a rocket. LOL Might do pretty good for fuel economy though.
