Price for svo motor? And how to swap?

Hey guys so i saw an add for a SVO motor it is supposedly complete minus the turbo, probably no wiring harness or computer the guy wants $200 and he'll throw in an extra block supposedly SVO i emailed the guy about it but i haven't got any confirmation back.... I was wondering anything i should check out or do, if i do get a reply to check it out, any reasons not you buy it? How hard is it to swap out engines since i have the 91 dual plug 2.3 I'm new to doing things to cars but once i get in there i can figure it out any help is always welcomed and any advice:beer:

Well shit, I could use a spare block. That's a pretty good price. All you can do is disassemble it and check it all out. Other than that just make sure the crank turns fine, about all you can typically do right in front of people.

He's obviously out of his mind if he's looking to spend that much...

Just make sure that if you do the swap have some extra $$ for when thinks go wrong, like when changing the fpr you realize that all of your lines are shot.

On a 20+ yr old car, things will go wrong when you work on them. Most people when seeing an old DD car in good running condition fail to realize the work involved in working on it.

But be sure to make a thread of your TC/SVO swap, i'd love to see the progress.

I can't find a signature I like.... I am too picky

Should look like this, if its complete. The big thing in the intake is the air to air intercooler. It lets you run more boost/get the most power per boost. It works by the principle that colder air is denser, hence more power. (More air allows more fuel).
