How competent/experienced are you working on cars? I would guess the swap would cost $6k at an absolute minimum with you doing all of the work.

The s62 just seemed like it would be a very fun swap to do but have had any experience with that motor at all just seen videos and read up on it a bit before hand

S62 is going to be double/triple an S52 swap.

S62 does seem cool, but it definitely is not for the faint of heart, or for the faint of wallet.

You can do an M60B44 build for way less than an S62 and still have close to 300 RWHP with tuning.
