Just out of curiosity...

for an engine like this that would go for 1250, what else would need to be done? it isn't the entire front clip, so gonna need a computer of some sort, i wouldnt think it would be too terrible bad. couldn't be more than 2k for labor, and maybe 350 for a good computer, what else would ya need?

just realized it is AWD also, so you'd have to have a new rear diff. also, so i guess that aspect could up the labor a bit wink

Your looking at about 10,000 grand!!! Your gonna need to move your firewall back, i belive, not a lot but a little for clearance issues. Convert your car to AWD, alots of mone there, new SUspension, computer, drive axle, drive shaft, the works!!!

yeah, i assumed there would be more to it, why can't they just make it easy on us like they do with hondas? spineyes not really thinking of doing it by any means, i just don't know much about cars, and by asking questions i slowly figure stuff out thumbsup
