I would do it again, but this time it would take me a weekend instead of 2 months.
As far as problems, everything was pretty self explanatory. The only real problem was keeping my mom from seeing me work on the car because ever since the engine fell on me she has been paranoid, plus she wanted to FULL ACCESS to the garage (garage is for men, kitchen is for women!). After that lil* incident though, I've been taking every safety precaution known to man. So if you're going to follow through with this swap never leave the car raised just on a jack with out jack-stands, don't think you're superman and can do everything with out anyones help, don't even chance it.
This was not fun:

Kinda fun...

This made the none fun part worth it:

The most rewarding part of the swap was when every single neighbor who has been secretly spying on your progress comes out to see the car start (or not start) for the very first time.
