x2umm lot of work, you would need the tranny more then likley along with TCM and ECU want all the wiring to make the guages work an what not.
QFTand how much for installation and custom fab? i'm guessing at least $10,000 for a quality job, if not more.
Motors don't wear out. The piston rings, the crankshaft bearings, and the valve guides wear out. These can all be replaced. To kill a motor you have to physically damage it by throwing a rod or something like that. The rings may last til 200,000 miles, at which point it would be reasonable to replace them if the rest of the car still works.well my motor has 127k on it not sure how much life is left in it hopefully plenty but who knows just wondering what my options when it goes out
even if you do the install yourself, you'd still need to custom fab parts, unless you also had a quality machine shop at your disposal.QFT
$3500 is only a bargin if you can
a: do the work yourself (which would require years of experence)
b: afford to lose your car for a long time and face reliability issues.
