can't argue the school first thing. You go to school get an education which will help you get a lot better paying job and then you have monies to pay for the fun hobbies. Thats real wisdom right there.

^^wiring and ecu troubles takes a little time/money to figure out. Even if he does what is said it still comes down to money and time. I've waited this long I can wait a little longer but I swear by the 4yr I am giving up lol. This is what happened last year lol but hey at least the motor is in the car and bolted up this time lol

yeah that feeling of not having a car.... get it done! so just a little question about wiring....when you change it, how far through the body do you have to change it? I'm not too sure about it, and I'm afraid I wouldn't have a clue what to do when I do the swap
