again for out of market engine 2nd hand, prices vary, depending on avalaibility and condition, mine came with its own power st/ and a/c comp. new clutch and orginally this engine had auto tranny which i replaced with a 5 speed. 6 speed is also avaliable but hard to find good 1. When this engine was bought,it was higher priced from the ones lying outside in yards. Sounds as i overpaid for everything, but the fact is those guys selling these, can also sell you shining junk, if you dont use right sources. I am sure everybody knows, these things are not same as buying a brand new civic from Honda where all cars are of same quality. Many times you have to go back to change stuff, if something or the other donest work right. I am using this car as daily driver because i made sure i do try to get everything working in order and not leave a job half done.
I paid little more than 100,000 for everything. About additional mods in the car,none.. i have used only stock components from toyota and the base car used for this mod is levin GT-apex. I have driven a Gt-S for many yrs and after these mods in XE the overall performance is not very diffirent than that of GT-s. ( main diff , GT was rwd).i have plans to work on vented all disc brake/ suspension/ and minor interior changes.
i bought this 9 yr old car early this yr and worked on mods during summer. Initially i had plans to work on my white 93 XE, 2 yrs back, but due to funds problem that project never happened.
