One man's opinion. None of the non Porsche engine swap projects, I looked at, ever seemed to make sense to me. Unless you have the shop, tools, skill set to do most of the work yourself. And or you just want a really serious engineering project as a personal challenge.

My fear would be, I get 95% completed mechanically and you can't get the electrical systems to merge. Mating those two disparate systems together, I think, will be the toughest challenge. I would work out as much of that on the front end before you commit. Then CA emission testing/registration compounds the issues even more. Unless you know somebody who can back door that process, I can't imagine how that works practically.

Like others have suggested, this may turn into a huge money hole. Proceed with extreme caution.
