    would you be able to do the work yourself?
    if you can, and you find a good donor car with all the bits needed, then it would be alot cheaper than getting a garage to do it.

    all the work will be worth it tho mate

    I did one in a mk4 sri 2.0ltr (x20xev) only took a weekend to do but then found out the z20let had a melted piston . Right the dash loom from a z20let needs to be complete inc the bit that goes near the handbrake due to the airbag ecu because the plugs are diffrent. you also need the whole z20let engine loom and thats about it for the looms.

    Hope this helps.

    As you're in Basildon, give TCS Performance a call on 01279 816370. They are based next to Stansted Airport and they quoted me £500 to fit a LET into mine, if I provide all the parts required

    Their website is http://www.tcsperformance.co.uk/

    i can vouch for TCS's work, the bloke that owns it is a family friend, his workis to a high standard and he specialises in engine conversions.
