Both engines are great. I still have my original engine that I can always put back in later or build. It's just cheaper and easier for me to learn/build a Chevy V8 engine right now than a Porsche engine.

Agree - my 50,000-mile bone stock 3.4 is running perfectly aside from a little noise when cold at startup that goes away after about 60 seconds. I wonder what the total cost will be on Apollo's LS2 swap would be. Hard to believe I couldn't get $5-$8k for my perfectly fine running engine. Only worried about the conversion cost.

Cost will just depend on what engine you start out with and what your power goals are. If you're just doing a straight swap, maybe $10k or so for all of the pieces minus the labor. I don't know personally, since I am doing a twin turbo set up on mine, so my costs will be a bit different, and also not something I really want to know how much I am spending anyways haha.
