Just because the check engine light is on that is no reason to replace the engine, it could just be a sensor malfunction. To do what you want will be a very big job, don't forget you have computer systems involved, adapter plates, mounts etc.


well i wanna change the engine because i was planing on changing the engine to get more hp so i was wondering how i can do that
