Anyone know where to get one???

im gonna do the whole PI headswap and aftermarket cams, but i want to have little downtime for my car...i was thinking of getting another NPI motor and do the swap and everything then just switch out the motors. But i havent been able to find one yet.

does this sound like a logical idea?

instead of doing that, just get a pi engine.everything will swap over and u wont have to screw with the inside.karkraft.com sells used engines and new, have no idea about there quality though.

to change to a PI motor you have to change alot...the fuel system, gauges, and i think the wiring harness tooo...plus a NPI motors with PI swap puts out more power.

nope none of that.use all ur existing parts from ur npi, and everything will transfer over.use the pi motor as a lonblock, use ur npi wiring harness, fuel system, etc, evrything will swap over.

nope not true!

you use your coil packs, fuel rails, wiring, computer etc etc from the NPI and just swap in the PI complete engine...its that easy. also PI swap on a NPI shortblock only gains a couple of HP because of the comptession jump.
