The engine was rebuilt about 3,000 miles ago and has some extra's, and the trans was rebuilt about 500 miles ago. I don't think $600 is out of the question.

Also i think $1500 should be about right because i already have the transmission remember. Say $500 for the engine, ecu, and harness. Then the rest for accessories and and other pieces to make it fit.
