YJ 5.3 Vortec Swap Cost [spreadsheet]

I've been keeping track of this throughout my build. I feel like I'm close enough now that I can share it with all of you. I think I'm only missing a few items: fluids, radiator hoses, tranny cooler lines, and some electrical items for the fan install.

I know how frustrating it can be when you are trying to plan something like this and you get the typical answer from people...
"You need an engine/tranny, some wiring, and a couple of spark plugs. That should do it. It'll cost about $2500."

Here's a spreadsheet on google docs. If you want your own version, download it as an excel file. You can copy/paste it too, but it messes up the formatting.

And here's my build up for those that are looking for more information:

I hope that helps.
