but we shall see, ill be happy to just drive my car again.

Im calling around tomorrow to get more estimates on pricing :/
I know this is very very old, but lifting the old engine out and putting the identical new engine in won't be more than a days labour

I'm not even expecting too much for my much more complicated swap lol
