    Don't forget you'll need to upgrade alot more besides the engine.

    Springs, dampers, braking (drums to disc conversion, larger disc conversion), gearbox, clutch amongst other things.

    Assuming you have to buy the engine the cost for the transplant would probably be similar to changing your car to an SRi-T which would have a higher resale value.
