New to me

Just got this 96 in my garage today, pretty much everything engine wise needs to be reattached.
Any tips?

V6, the engine in there looks pretty good. Just needs new head gaskets. It's putting the rest together that has me worried. This is the first car I've had that needs this much work.

+1 you could get a decent chunk of change parting it out. I made a good amount parting out my 94.

If you want to keep it, be prepared for the rather large investment of time and money it will become.

Do you have all the parts? Or do you need to buy them? And why the hell did the guy dismantle it?

It was dismantled because the previous owner wanted to put a v8 in it.
I have all the parts.
My budget is about 1200$

Well in that case, it should be easier and cheaper. Having all the parts means you dont have to buy em, but piece them back together. Would be a good time to do upgrades, ie longtubes. Youve go more room to work with. I would also find some split port head and do the swap, bring you up from the 150 crank hp to 190 at the crank.

Just an update on where I'm at. Getting the heads checked on Wednesday then I'll put it back together. Thanks for the help so far.
