Message the seller for any major modifications made on our cars. The LOJ swap kit was about $7,000, labor for the swap at their facilities is quoted at $4,000 and the Engine / Trans combo had to be at least $5,000. So the total just for the basic swap almost equals the sale price on BAT.

Although this particular car has a history, and while everyone in the Nissan V8 FB page knew the previous owner posted YouTube vids of roll racing the crap out of it every weekend; I doubt the bidders were aware of its hard life.

That and given it had no AC, limited its potential. I was however, guessing closer to $20k; but then again, I biased in wishing for higher values of these swaps.
