Where did this come from? Just some random rambling you had to do?

While you're at it, don't forget about shop towels, hand cleaner, gloves, kitty litter(or e-z-oil-b-gone).

Just my .02.

Well I had all this info written down and I'm just trying to make it more complete... thing is, when people ask me for quotes on engine swaps, a good $500 - $100 is labelled as "misc" and people have a hard time understanding how you can spend $500 on odds and ends... so I put this together to show how they add up, but there's a lot on there that I'm forgetting...

If that makes any sense!

Just giving ya shit man... I'm trying NOT to go crazy here.

While I'm at it.. :jacked:

Besides Eagle and JE Pistons, what other piston/rod combinations are possible for the 3sgte engine? I haven't been able to really locate any other manufactuer's that have pistons for the 3sgte.

I didn't know that.. Thanks for that bitchslap. (Damn eagles going for 800 bux with a 8:1 ratio on ebay).

This is off topic, but if you really wanted to mess with them, tell them $20 for the "stud" handling fee.... lets see if anyone knows what that is.....

Good call gettin a list up. Very useful.

If we could get a stickie up for all the "odds and ends" (such as this thread), as well as another thread on things to replace while doing the swap such as things as belts, seals, etc. Would be very useful as well for when I end up doin my swap this summer. Its nice to know what should all be done when someone recieves a clip/motor and knows what should be replaced before throwing the engine into its new bay.
