    Nice pick up. How much did you pay for them? Are you familiar with what is involved in swapping out engines?

    if you have any idea of what your doing,then the swap should take about 2days(given you have everything you need)

    i would get a car and then see what i need for it.

    and at the very least take a look and the short block inside to see if they have spun bearings. also i would do a leak down test; it would be a shame if you bought and installed everything only to find out the engines are garbage...

    Between the two engines, providing they both don't have the same problems (and this is IF there's anything wrong with them but I don't see someone selling two for that price if they were both in good condition IMO) then you should be able to build one good engine.

    From the little bit that I know (which isn't all that much), to do a swap you're going to need mounts, axles, shift linkage, ECU, wiring harness, and intake/exhaust manis. I'm not sure if that's all you'll need, but the smarter people will correct me if any of that's wrong =)
