If you're careful and patient, you can do it pretty economically. I paid 5K for my motor, 1.5K for the swap kit, and 1.5K for labor (a flat rate, negotiated in advance). I used a Carrera exhaust ($250). The car already had an oil cooler, so I simply put in a Carrera unit, initially, for $400.

I sold my old (firing on 5) motor for $1,600.

I'm not listing these prices to suggest they could be easily duplicated today. But some 'Superman-style thrift' and a little patience can make a big difference.

If you consider that I went from 125 hp to over 250, it was a fairly good deal (relative to general Porsche costs).
