I'm looking for as simple of a swap as possible. I really don't want to have to start swapping sensors, wiring harnesses, intakes, exhaust manifolds etc. All of that means broken rusty bolts and more grief and money.
I plan to sell the car and hope to make a few bucks doing it. I want reliabilty not more power.
My car is great except for the engine. It has a Blue Oval switch chip, a great trans, cold A/C , 4 wheel anti-lock discs, leather, etc. It will make a good car for someone once the engine is swapped out.
I tried selling it as is without parting it out. I get talkers. They get me to agree on $1500 then say they don't have the money . Why the frick would someone shop for a car without having the money. I can see tire kickers and expect them, but why talk price? It is advertised at $2000, they offer $1500 (3 people so far) then don't follow through. Why talk someone down if they aren't buying it? Just to see how low someone will go?
As you can tell I'm getting PO'd. Sorry for the rant.
I'll keep looking for a direct engine swap.
