I paid $1500 for the complete engine, wiring harness, computer, alternator, starter, rad, intercooler, and oil cooler. The only other parts i needed were the motor mounts from a 5m motor and the bellhousing from a w58 transmission and a flywheel. There were still many other things i needed to buy. I had to install a new high flow/volume fuel pump along with new fuel lines. For the exhaust i used a high flow cat and 2 chamber flow master both 3". I havn't mounted the intercooler just cause i don't know where to put it i mounted dual electric fans out of 2 honda's in the front rad support. I have 4.10's and 35's but with this engine i can start in second gear. And once that turbo spools up it hauls. I am extremely happy with it

I might do a detailed writeup once i find some webspace
until then ill answer any questions

mine is out of an 87 so stock its got 230 with my exhaust and air filter i figure ive got over 250. Im thinkin of buy'n another engine and build'n it up for some serious power. Ill see if i can get some more pics of the bumper. The early motors are a lot easier to put in but offer a lot less power around 160 i think and are not turbo
Ill start making a write-up
thanx

Yoda,

Did you have to change drivetrain at all to handle that extra power?

If it came stock with an intercooler and you're not running one be careful of detonation.... Also, I'd figure around 230fwhp without the IC, 250 def with the IC maybe a bit more:*******

No doubt it hauls some seroius ass tho:eek:
