There aren't really write up's for any of our swaps as most of the time they're quite different. as for your swap.. You'll need the engine, harness, tranny, motor mounts, and everything else that required to run the engine.

I don't think anything is reusable with a swap like that.

What's the reason for the swap?

WIth you doing a A-series to S-series engine, you'll have to basiclly redo the engine compartment completely. The A-series and S-series have diff. mounts (like he said before me) as well as of course wiring, ECU, motor, and the 5s tranny.

For the money you're prolly gonna spend swapping and turboing the 5s you almost definitely could have swapped a 3sgte. I'd imagine it might even be easier to swap the 3sgte then go through all the work associated with swapping AND turboing the 5s. To each their own I guess tho.

Happy trails. :)
