With alot of the following:

-Pain
-Heartache
-Patience
-Money
-Swearing
-Time
-Research
-Swearing
-Luck
-Swearing

If i had known mine was going to take this long to complete and with all the money i have spent i probably could have had a pretty meaty SOHC engine. But unless you have ALOT of the above i wouldn't reccomend trying haha.

if you have to ask a question that general about it, dont consider it unless you have money to piss away for someone else to do it....

you change the engine mounts to EA ones, then it all fits up beside the bottom two bellhousing bolts. Then you have to make it run.

the Auto elec round the corner from me said he has done it - a guy bought a smashed BA - pretty much transfered everything over and he used the CAPA flash tuner to disable what ever was not required. quoted me $1200 including dyno tune for him to reprogram.
basically provide him with car at the point where it almost crank over once and he will do the rest.
