the wiring not that hard, theres alot of "hype" that its difficult, its just time consuming. have you ever done any swap before or any wiring?

I know someone in the general area that may be willing to help... let me see if i can get ahold of him tonite. He's a member on here, but doesn't post very often since he sold his 4th gen. But he's done a number of swaps, including a 5mge into a Toyota truck, 3800sc into a Fiero, and recently, a Northstar V8 into a Fiero.

3sgte shouldn't be that bad compared to those. I'll see how close he is to you, and if he'd be willing to help. :)

i'm extremely bad with wiring lol as for motor, i've done general maintainence, distributor install, brakes and suspension... no crazy stuff like a swap or head build

thanx for the hookup ciento44 :bigthumbu

If wiring is that much of a problem, hit up Dr.tweak who can do the whole harness for you for IMO a good price.

yea id go with tweak, he can make the harness plug and play, bascially all youll have to do is drop in the engine, do the power steering and a/c lines and hook up the harness

should cost between $300-$400 and thats exremely CHEAP

wiring isnt that hard, but if you doubt you can do it, give it to tweak he will fix you up. plug and play for the win!! agree with ^

andy how lond did it take u to do yours? took me like 5 days of about 1-2 hour sessions plus the last day of about 6 hours of finishing and cleaning everything up. but this was when the swap was relativly new.
