Um, By the time you get done paying that bill, you can
buy a new car.

Agreed...  My conversion will use a proper engine
control computer.  It is unfortunate (for financial
reasons) that the stock computer from the donor car is
TOO integrated in to the entire car, so it will not
work properly unless it also sees the transmission
control systems, and body control systems.  I SUSPECT
that the engine will run with the stock computer
"solo", but it would be a limp home mode.

After market computer will fix the problem but at a
significant cost.

My plan was to make the custom parts that I am having
fabricated available to others, with a list of sources
to get everything else..  The goal was to be able to
copy my work for under $6000

Of course, my fabricator has been taking a lot longer
than I expected.  For 2 years now, I have been hearing
it will be done in a few more weeks!  and he already
has a bunch of my money :(
