The only thing that I am certain we have to swap over seems to be turbos,oil pan, injectors and possibly my wiring harness which all can be done rather easy with the engines out of the car. I plan on replacing oil pan gasket and possibly valve cover gasket, anything else you guys recommend before putting this one back in? Hopefully I don't run into anything unexpected but will keep this thread updated regardless. Happy sunday guys
I'm telling you from now things tend to get complicated at times. like when i was replacing my turbos a bolt got seized in the engine head. and issues are issues. but get a new Tsat water pump for assurance. its pretty simple i guess for mechanically inclined people. but hopefully all goes well take pics as you go if you can
