Check the "LS Powered RX8" facebook group.

There was a guy on there doing turn-key swaps for people in his garage.

When I asked he quoted me about $9k for 400 HP out of an LM4 (aluminum block 5.3L with LS intake and moderate cam) including working dash, ABS, A/C, OBD port connected to the LS ECU and passing plug-in OBD emissions inspection.

I know a reputable shop that has done LSx swaps recently give Lucky 7 Racing a call ask to speak with Fris and tell him Quintin sent you they can square you away!

L7R phone: (626) 358-2705

I will message you his direct number just make sure to tell him I sent you otherwise he will be like who the hell is this?
