cost would vary greatly, dependiing on whether or not you are doin the labor.

or was that your question, how much would labor be?

yes i was wondering how much labor would be. If i was to get a motor though could it just be from a junk yard? or would it be better to find someone on the forums I saw that they did it in a 00 thats why i asked about my 96

Pretty much..anything CAN be done. It'* a matter of how much you can find the parts and labor to do it.

Ask around.. do your homework..

You could easily go with Ed Morad. He'* in Ohio. His specialty is 3800'* and all parts for 3800'*. Which makes him about the coolest guy around.

In the long run, it may still be more cost-effective to sell your Bonneville and buy an SSEi.

why?

SSEi...... 96+...... $4K + for a in good shape.
Swapping...... S2.........$1-2K or less if you find a deal.

If my SE was in better shape and i didn't find the 95 i was going to do a S2 swap as well.

That'* the price if you have everything you need and can do the work yourself, Bandit. Let'* get serious here.

He can sell his 96 SE for 2500 and I gaurantee he can find an SSEi around the same vintage for less than 2k more.
