So Let it be Written, So Let it be Done!

Weekend Warrior

So, this was the first weekend working on the car prepping it for the new engine. While I learned a lot, I definitely accomplished little of my goals for this weekend. Additionally, the costs of this swap keep adding up. At some point, I’m going to have to make a final reckoning.

Part of the problem of comparing a swap to other upgrades (like a supercharger) is that a swap necessitates things like upgrade front brakes, new exhaust system, perhaps a new (and stronger clutch), complete fluid drains, flushes, and fills, etc.

So, there is a lot of work and cost that goes into it that normally would be spread over a much wider period of time (for those of us who are monetarily challenged). So part of the reckoning, at least for comparison to those who say a supercharger is cheaper is identifying what components are the bare minimum for a swap.

Then, I can price those for comparison.
