Explain horrible condition? and why does your 04 need a motor? Lets start there! This might be a case where you can take them both, and make one great motor. give me the low down, of the 95' motor and the 04' motor. one may have a good lower end[short block] and it just may be a changing over of upper of the other! Let me know what your dealing with, and I will walk you thru it. you'll be up and running in no time...lol lol...seriously I will walk you though the hole process.....hope this helps
