Edit: not pulling trans with. My 96 has an auto and i want it to stay that way.


Depending on the motor you are swapping with, your electrical harness and computer may not allow for an easy swap.

I find myself in the same place. I was hoping to use a stand alone ign. Like used on a ls it seems that won't work. I dead in the water on this. I running propane or plan on it. Mine a buggy toy. Has any got over this problem. If so what's the answer. Maybe we will find out together
