Quick Question?

When someone does a k-swap in there engine and later on plans to sell it... does the cars value depreciate? just wondering cause i really want to go with the frankenstein swap!

Re: Quick Question?

Yes the cars selling price is lowered. Most likely they dont care to much about the resale price.

Re: Quick Question?

I think ur wrong.. dealership value is probably worth nothing if they even take it.. but street value I would say would be higher on the car.. depending who done the swap, how well it was done, tuned etc.. and what your final numbers were and such..

Re: Quick Question?

doing a kswap will lower the cars value compared to stock. I don't know how car prices are in canada. but its just cheaper to trade in your civic and get a used type S now...then to do a kswap in the US.
