found rolled 96 sidekick

hello all new to all this, but here's my question- I found a 96 zuk sidekick that had been rolled. would this be a good parts rig for my sammi? on the posting it said 1.8L they are asking $700 for it. would have to see if the engine was dammaged, but thought this might be a good power boost and other parts. let me know what you think, thanks in advance

Personally, I don't care for the 1.8s. They only used them 3 years in the Sidekick Sports (96-98). So used parts can be hard to find. On the plus side, they are right around 120HP. I would look for either a 1.6 16V or a 2.0 16V, for an engine swap, if it were me.

Just my .02

Would there be a lot more involved in the swap?

It is basically the same as any other engine swap....wiring harness mods, motor mount mods, engine to tranny adapter. As far as bolting a samurai flywheel onto the 1.8.....I am trying to remember if the bolt pattern is the same in the crankshaft.....I am thinking it is not.....so add custom flywheel to the list.
