Make sure the body is solid, doesn't have to be pretty, but if it has a lot of rust, don't bother. You'll end up with an empty wallet and heartbreak.
But if it's decent and only $250, just buy it. You can sort the rest out later.
Keep in mind that even with a manual, these things take time. Plan on several months to assemble parts & do the work. The YouTube videos showing a weekend motorswap are not realistic for your average person.

Looking to do a swap in my 95 manual trans and keep all the bits working with a 95 M50(?). I'd love to buy a manual for the swap.

Thumbs up crazy-good swap manual... it's August 2018, now.

Hi Jim,

How would I go about getting 2 (two) copies of your manual, now??

My month-old purchase of a great ti has a good sounding stock 4-cyl. engine, with 258k miles. But, fingers crossed, it could 'grenade' any day!

Tx, Mike Bryant "ypres"

Hello everyone. A long overdue “update” that is anything but.

I’d really like to be able to offer these soft. As much as I want a real, printed book for my coffee table, prices are way too high. I tried a local shop for print on demand and that was over $200 a copy just to print and bind it... I can’t sell them for $400 so I’m still trying to find a simple solution that is not too expensive.

If anyone has ideas, or knows a way to lock down the soft file to avoid those less honorable from pirating it, I’m all ears.

Between work load and my little man at home, I have very little time for anything unfortunately.

Apologies to all the patient ones too- this was supposed to be done a year ago. I’m no happier about it than you are...

On the bright side I have added even more information...

You should be able to publish the book via Kindle. There exists an option to do a paperback.

Kindle paperback is a great solution. Let's do this! Really looking forward to the manual. Mid s52 swap right now. Thanks, Jim!

I desperately need one of these manuals, just took the plunge and purchased an s50. I absolutely am going to need this guide, I hope I can order one soon!
