wouldn't the oil light have come on if it was low on oil? Also, the car never got hot AT ALL - not even a little. but can anyone tell me how to swap or refer me to a guide or book i should buy?? i got a price of $995 for a used l67- it SAYS 30k miles "carfax certified" but we will see. Would i have to get a new supercharger or can i just use the one currently on my engine?

wow....great price on the engine!

does it not come with the S/C??

usually, the check oil, followed by the SES light would come on....but this seems to have happened fairly quickly....

when you move the car now are there any lights coming on?

The engine swap is fairly easy....just replace what you took off....harnesses, connections, hoses, lines, hardware like bolts, nuts.....its something you and your husband can do in a weekend with the right tools and a cherry picker.....

BillBoost can probably help you, and Turtle, I believe was the latest to install an engine on the site.....

it does not come with the supercharger. but mine should be fine right? when i bought the car originally, the s/c had been replaced 2 yrs before i bought it (bought 2005) Would i need any special tools to do it? I had heard sumthing about sodering iron in a diff. forum - does the swap involve sodering anything? Ill try to send a message to the ppl u mentioned, sumone should write a step-by-step - im scared something will get hooked up wrong or forgotten. nervous

also - have not moved car in a couple weeks - i need to recharge battery

i did get a the same price from a diff. yard that comes with the S/c BUT it is "unknown" mileage. too risky for me

the S/C is just a bolt on...you'll need a new gasket/seal...I don't know why you would need a soldering iron unless you are rewiring electrical connections.....but soldering is easy and should be th least of your worries...

feel better?

Before you do this, you need to read alot and be prepared.....always know what the next step is and how to do it....

...and don't listen to me....although under my screen name says "enthuiast" I am still a noob on this site and with this engine....listen to the other guys here....I learn something everyday....

If you have a complete engine to install it's not too bad - disconnect all of the wiring harness (not a simple undertaking), the fuel lines, then drain the coolant, disconnect hoses, take motor mount and bellhousing bolts off (one of the bellhousing bolts is well known as the "bastard bolt" for a reason, it goes in from the wrong side and it's in the back so you don't see it), pass side trans to engine bracket, remove the torque converter bolts and that's about it. Reverse procedure for installation.

Not a lot of steps but getting the wiring harness out of the way will take a good half-day if it's your first time and you are labelling things as you disconnect them (VERY IMPORTANT). Some of the bolts are hard to get to but it'll be a learning experience for sure...

Good luck!
