I know what you are saying Brandon but I am limiting my project to an engin=
e swap only, not an e//S2 conversion.
I am going to gather all the info and parts I can before even starting it. =
 I think a lot of guess work can be taken care of by buying factory S2 part=
s=2E  I will be doing a ton of homework ahead of time.
That said, It will take me a while just because I can not devote that much =
time to it. I do have a family and a job.
I think if planned properly, an engine swap could be done in a few weeks at=
 a full time shop.  We are not breaking new ground here like you were BH.  =
