It's a cool swap, but it's gonna either be a lot of work or cost a lot. vtecMX5 hasn't posted since November, but if I remember correctly he never got rid of a weird vibration in the driveshaft.

A friend of mine just had a shop do the swap into an AE86 and it was quite expensive bit of work.

oh.. its a F20C not F22 thats why #-o Looks like alot of work!
The 2nd-gen S2k (if you want to call it that) had a 2.2L, so F22? would be correct if you had been referring to that engine. The 2.0L is still a great engine and no doubt makes more glorious sounds thanks to the higher redline.

realized that it is way out of my league at this time.

maybe five years from now when i will have acquired much more layout/fabrication experience....

The F20C1 came on 1999-2003 S2000s, from 2004-2007 they come with the F22C1. From 06 on, they added Drive By Wire/Traction Control/etc which makes that engine difficult to swap. If you want the 2.0L, do it with an engine out of a 1999-2003, if you want the 2.2L use the engine out of a 2004 or 2005.

That's my car on S2KI, the motor is out right now and the car is at the paint shop, it should be back next week.
