Yeah I've got a 91 sedan as well, it's just sitting in my shop for sale, so maybe since nobody wants to buy it, I'll swap a motor for a couple hundred then sell it for a little more eh? So exactly what parts and wires and everything do you need to complete the swap? I'm thinking I can do it in a day or two or three, being this is the first swap I'm thinking of doing myself. And I have access to pretty much anything and everything, as far as tools go anyways.

Shit that place is expensive. A b16 on their site is practically what I'm asking for the car haha. A b18c swap here in CO is 3200 bucks complete. On that site, it's 3300 plus shipping. I'm just gonna pull and pay for the parts probably, and if that doesn't work I have a friend at the shop by mine who does swaps, so I can just get it from him. Do you know what kind of harnesses I'll need, just the ones for the new engine right?
