Yea man.. you're looking at spending $750 to $1500 just for the engine / harness / tranny / pcm / axles..
figure another $200 to $400 for the mounts
Figure another $500 for misc parts / wires / bolts / etc, etc.
So you're sitting at $1450 to $2400 just for the hardware needed to perform the swap... it would be a STEAL if you could find someone to do a quality install for just $2,000 labor.. more than likely it'll be double that for labor..
So you're looking at $5450 to $6400 to pay someone to do the swap..
If you were thinking that you could get away with an L67 swap for $1000 or less.. I'm sorry.. not going to happen... not with you paying someone else for the swap.

Get your mounts from purple reign or fieroX. Get in touch with fieroflyer about having a harness made. I have an exhaust guy that can hook you up. Sinister Performance can reprogram the ecm for like 80 bucks And I think purple reign makes the low mount alternator bracket too
