swap cost

How much should i expect to pay in labor to replace my blown 2.3 with another 2.3 or 2.3 turbo? Assuming i buy the engine or turbo engine harness and computer. I feel i can get a 2.3 turbo setup for like 6-700$? But how much would a mechanic charge to take out old one and put in new one?

Well if u can find just another 2.3 motor and put it in maybe 100-300. If u do a 2.3 build non turbo about 2000 if u do all the work yourself maybe 1500.

Yea u should I would deff find a friend or 2 to come over and help. I would deff suggest takin the head off and doing a inspection on cyl walls. Also check the bottom end out head and check for visiable creaks. Head gasket kit will run about 50-60 that comes with upper lower intake gaskets valve cover gasket and some other one. Trust me I bough a motor from a guy off line and the head gasket was blown. U will save yourself time and hassle if u do it all before u drop motor in.
