How difficult would it be to swap the engine from a 2004 elantra into a 1996, my engine just crapped on me and I need a new engine and tranny bad? I found a wrecked 2004.

If it's cheap get the whole car, lots of goodies but lots of work with the wiring.
Otherwise find a 99-00 motor, they're all 2.0L's and would be a direct swap.

Hey thanks for letting me know, where would be the best place to get a whole car that I can take the engine and tranny out of pretty cheap something between 96-00?

Ok I got the car it's a 2000 elantra w/ a 5 speed so I'm gonna be swapping that into my '96. Am I going to be pretty much just bolting it up and plugging stuff in nothing special required? Would the ECU from the 1.8 work fine with the 2.0. Also what is the fix to make the reverse lights work when swapping to a 5 speed. What wires do I have to cross to make the car start without pushing down the clutch? Anything else I should be worring about before I start?
