OLD THREAD BUT USEFUL INFO POSSIBLY
Well to pick up a engine package wil cost you $1200-1800 thats engine,loom,ecu,gearbox then you will have to purchase alternator, exhaust manifold, air intake as these parts arent always included.
Then when you have the silvertop you should replace leads,spark plugs, belts, hoses, oils, filters and maybe the bolts and gaskets this will costs $200-$600
Then the engine crane and stand cost $500 or you can hire both for $100 for a weekend.
Then the tideous work of the changover thats say average cost in labour is $70 a hour so can take 40 hours for a mechanic to do the swap for you. so $1400 around there.
and then you can sell your 4afe in parts or as one depending on kms for $300- $700
so lets say $2000-4000 will cost to do this changover as an average
oh engineering papers expect $500+ (i dont know exactly but just a guess)
