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.

You definitely went above and beyond why I did with my swap. Lol, life got ahead of me and i lost track so my truck is still sloppy mechanic cobbled together for now. Been down for almost 2 years just waiting for me to fix it. But, with 5 vehicles needing my attention that happens.
