Need advice. My wife loves her car a 99 wagon :wub: we recently purchasted it and took it on vacation 150miles from home KAPOW!! both head gaskets blow it even blew the coolent cap off! Got home (thanks UHAL) tore it down water in the oil:(. So 2 questions 1.How hard to do an engine swap in these things? I have done fwd engine swap before. 2. Has anyone tried any of the long blocks avalbile at advance auto. (spartian) They seem to be the best value $1520 at my local store. Any help/advice would be nice

$1520 is not a bad price, you would be 2/3rd into that in doing just heads. The jobs not too bad, though I would look at doing the front trans seal while you have the engine off. I would also completely redo the hoses in the cooling system and run new vacuum lines.
