Some of the best work you can buy is in your area.

Good luck with that. He's backed up for like a year and a half.

That may be true but he occasionally has cancellations. I was the beneficiary of a cancellation and the bad economy last Dec '09.
His work is first class.

My '85GT...

That's exactly why he's always so backed up, his work is top notch 100% of the time.

I have seen his work in person. It is better than factory original. If I had the cash he or Guru would be my choice. Both do excellent work.

If you have to ask, you can't afford it.

You do realize that you're looking at $4,000 to $5,000 just for the labor right?

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.

The numbers that Datacop gave you are pretty darn accurate. The swap can be done with half-a#$ quality for around $1500 if you can do all the work yourself.

I can probably do most of it my self but I would probably get stuck and not know who to go to for help

Props to you if you attempt it. Feel free to give me a call if you need some guidance. I've done several 3800 swaps and I don't live too far from you. Northside of indy.

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
