I am trying to stay on topic


I am saying that I pulled my first motor and it wasnt bad. After saying that and doing the whole swap this past weekend. I am saying that the whole swap is alot easier. To pull the tranny, engine together is alot easier. The axels are actually very easy to pull. The complete swap comes with wiring harness and pcm and that is pull and play. Just pull the l67 harness into your fuse boxe, abs, ect. Then hook up the ssei pcm. Sercurity relearn and start it up. I dont know what he has for tools, garage, resources ect. But tools are miniumal, mostly a few sockets and wrenches, jack stands, a cheap cherry picker and a few other little things. If you can find somebody to let you use a cherry picker and jack stands if you dont have them, you can do it with about 100 dollars for tools.

yea your right. I was just trying to see if i could convince him into atleast considering doing it himself.


If you have to pay to get it done, well then maybe you should take these guys advice

That depends on what year you get.

If you are swapping to a SC motor. They you need the motor, trans, wiring, pcm and RH axle. Overall it'* pretty straight forward especially if you use the same year parts from a Bonne. If you use a year or two newer.. then a quick check of the connector going into the car would be needed to compare the wiring. Most likely..it'* the same.

No. You need the transmission, axles, PCM, and wiring harness also.
