ok i said it would be about $2000 with someone doing the swap. like i said motor $800, you just said Re and Re $1000, and there are little extras that you will need... so how is my price of $2000 off????

I ended up just going with a 2000 v6 motor, I bought it with a transmission, low kms (50,000).

Figured it would be a better option then rebuilding my 3.8 and doing a split port swap on it. The motor is also going to PSP for some extra goodies!

i was supposed to get it last weekend but that didnt work out so next weekend on the 28th. im getting the m90, alunminum jackshaft pulley, new CAI, 10% blower pulley, xcal2 tune with 91 and 94 octane tune done by justin at vmp tuning, and a new 255lph walbro fuel pump. and i got my duel exhaust in now and the 3.5" polished tips look awesome, sounds pretty good to but not loud enough so im gonna get some LT's and 2 high flow cats.

Give some serious thought to leaving the blower pulley at the stock size. That 10% "may" blow your head gaskets.
