LOL 30K is alot!

Pretty sure Allens 3k is for conversion parts only ..not built motor, labor, ECU etc.

Hehe just to clarify i said the "SWAP KIT" itself was north of $3k. I can't disclose how much exactly i spent as I was given a very good deal on the swap.

The engine, head and parts alone were well over $8k.

It's amazing how fast this stuff adds up. My first motor I think I had it in the car running for like $6500 (more like $2k after selling OEM F22 stuff) but it only made just north of 240whp. So, then the power bug bit me, By the time you buy $1000 intake manifold and $2000 ASP header, dry sump, different cams, Different engine mounts etc etc etc then loose a motor, then a 2nd motor the bill starts to tally pretty high. I'm afraid to add mine up, but I'm fairly certain I'd be north of 30k, Maybe even approaching the over the hill number. But I've probably made about 30% of that back selling the take off parts. So it's not as bad as it looks. I at one point had a $1000 bill from a dyno shop for the car having a tuning issue (turned out to be cams) that sat on the dyno for an entire day doing random pulls.

I agree. I was able to sell off my F20c1 stuff to recoup some of the costs but the parts for this swap added up very quickly. I had initially thought about doing a F series stroker utilizing the CNC kit however when I added up the costs it was looking to be in the $7-9k range as well after all was said and done. Figured for a little bit more I can swap the K series in and have much more potential in the process. The aftermarket support for the K series is huge and the cost/availability of K series engines made the swap very appealing.

It was not cheap but in the end Im very happy with my decision to swap the K in.

The other advantage is you can sell the F stuff and it then makes the K cheaper.

I have been keeping a spreadsheet of my build so I can post up an actual cost for one of these swaps soon. I am hoping to be running by the first day of spring.
