My 86 v6 SE has an engine knock and I'd *really* rather have someone qualified do a swap for me rather than sell it or donate it.
Swap or engine replacement. Who ever does a swap with an entirely different engine that the car came with will spend 50-100 hours of labor doing it with a load of fabrication parts + the engine cost. . If its just an 2.8L/3.4L engine change it can be done in three days of labor. Point is to expect a big difference in labor costs. If you have a good replacement engine, I know guys not far from here (NJ) that will do it for around $1500.
