I read a lot on here and found great information about the swap like how i need a rear oil sump and a custom drive shaft and using old volvo motor mounts or the stock skyline one. I have a budget of 2k from moms money lol.  :D

2k to put the engine into the car, or 2k to buy the engine, transmission, wiring, mounts, driveshaft, and any other adapters to make it work in the S30 chassis?

Update: i got the motor in today and now I'm looking to get rear sump oil pan. Im just hoping that my drive shaft fits and the motor fits as well. I'm going to slot the motor mounts. I'm planning to use the stock skyline ones worse comes to worse i get the jaguar xj6 motor mounts. :o

My advice is to go slow, don't do anything you can't undo, and find a knowledgeable and patient old fart to help you with the project.

 

I wish I had someone like that to help me with projects when I was young.

 

Good luck with it, and remember that when driving, there is nothing more important than making sure nobody gets hurt.

Little update: I got The engine in and bolted down and now it's just running electrical which isn't too bad using a diode for the alternator.I'm also changing my stock seats to some corbeau FIA apporved seats and going to weld harness bar. Also installing 12w-8 brakes with vented rotors. After that it should be running and on the road.
