Way too much.

At the time, I was going through divorce and I had a lot of cash in my bank account. Whatever stayed there was subject to being given to someone I didn't want it going to.

I want to say total price was in the 4000 range because I paid a shop to do the engine swap. I wasn't able to find anyone willing to help me with the job.

Then, come tax time, since I use the truck for contract work, I wrote that off as a business expense after the divorce was over.

Ha! Good write off indeed. Reminds me of the story where the wife got half the house in the divorce...

Husband actually cuts the house in HALF with a chain saw. It was all good, though. He was generous enough to offer her the half with the kitchen.
