Shit costs real money yo!

Maybe sometime though. Thing is this engine isn't staying in this car. I'm just getting it tuned on the fuel so I know what to adjust when I make the swap.
I'm lazy and don't want to swap yet is why it's being tuned in the car it's not staying in.
... and I haven't decided on just how I want to do the swap yet,,,

Other car has more power,
Other car has 188,xxx on the bottom end; new car has 5,xxx on bottom end,
Other car has LW FW, CFM oil pump and ARP studs; new car is stock,
Other car has stock trans; new car has Quaife,

I'd like to use the low mile block but that means I have to spend more time playing musical parts. I'm already dreading this so that option doesn't appeal to me at all. And it's not like the other block has anything wrong, just high miles.
Typical lazy/cheap skate excuses. you know.
Don't "think outside the box".
There is no box.
Do it correct, or do it twice.
