It's a LOT of work. I just did same thing from my cobra to my v6 donor car.

To swap the brake lines, abs lines, computers, motors, suspension, all the wiring harnesses (yep, all diff), etc. took me 9 months while building the car from scratch, and I worked on it a lot.

That's a huge job, rear end, brakes, motor, lines, computers, interior, etc..

You probably lookin' 10 grand, easy.. from anyone who knows what they're doing.

If i'm way off.. i'd love to hear someone elses take..

You're not too far off. But I'm sure there's a slut here that will do it for less than $1000.
