Re: [DML] engine swap?

I agree with Thomas, Darryl.  If you don't have much mechanical
ability, an engine swap wouldn't be a good idea.  The reason I say so
is because the labor involved to do a swap vs install another PRV6
would probably cost MORE than a new PRV6.  You might be able to get a
good used engine for not much money.  I'd ask Josh Haldeman, or
actually, I think Dave Swingle has an extra one (Dave?)?  

FYI I swapped to the 3.0L eagle premier engine, and I use megasquirt
with it.  It wasn't bad, but there was a few things that required
special consideration.  Some welding, cutting, new fuel lines, etc.
