Successful (different) engine swap?
There have been several threads discussing engine swaps for our 2nd Gens, but they all seem to be "what do I need to swap my engine." I can't seem to recall any "I just swapped my engine" threads.
Has anyone here successfully swapped a different sized engine into their 'Trep?
(I ask because I have a 2.7 with a rod knock. A used 2.7 in this area runs around $2500... a used 3.5 runs $1300... If I can get a 3.5 and all the necessary parts for $2500, it's a no-brainer. I don't, however, want to be the first guy to do it, and end up with a $5000 repair bill because of unforseen difficulties.)
