i did pay $200 about 3 years ago for a bbm conversion..
but it came with everything..
manifold+throttle body,airbox+piping,throttle cable ,accelerator pedal,heater pipes thermostat housing ect..

but you should be able to get it cheaper now...

$500 will generally buy you an AU motor.... if not a Ticky

I can get E series motors for <$200... and honestly I wouldnt pay much more than that for one, let alone just the intake side!!

yer ive thought about the engine conversion but am not that confident in carrying out it out myself, thought a BBM conversion might be a better starting point for now.

Be careful - it's been reported on here that the BBM won't clear the XG bonnet.
Not much detail was said about it - you could try Xfalcon and AFF - someone's probably done it and documented how they did it.
