Engine swaps

Okay, I know I offend the purists, but....
Has any one done a engine swap with a Nissan S14 Silvia SR20DE? This is a Japanese RWD engine that the RiceBoys are importing to the US to put in the 240 SX. It is a 2 liter turbo, putting out over 200HP. They claim engine and tranny weigh 550# together.
Now I'm not ready to jump into a project like this. I was just curious if anyone had some knowledge about this engine. It seems like it would be a good alternitive to some of the engine choices I've heard being used. They seem to be going for around $1800 complete with all wiring, turbo, CPU and tranny.
What do ya'll think?
Bestus,
James

Great engine, it would be one of the few I'd recommend for an Opel swap. However, it's a very tall engine so it's a tight fit, and with the intercooler in front, space is at a premium. You will also need a much larger cooling system. Rear axle must be changed, it will not take the power and torque.
Again, GREAT engine, a friend of mine got his dynoed at 409 hp to the FRONT wheels of his Sentra....with dead-stock internals, cast pistons and all. Go to SER.net for more info on these babys.....
