Even more good news and a change in mechanic. I got a co_worker that has a full service garge with lifts at home that gonna do the swap for me. He done it before and knows his way around it. He's only gonna charge me a flat rate of $500. Where as the normal mechanic wanted around $800 not counting oil and antifreeze. I'm I'm going to try to go tomorrow and pick up the engine harness ecu and mont. Then he is going to go pick up the car wendsday with his car trailer.

This is great news! The DOHC is such a better engine. You will like the power difference too. I hope it all goes well for you.

Well $500 not including the engine and parts. Just for labor and the tow.
