Haha steelies are so cheap, just buy a set if you want black wheels that bad. They can be had for under $200 regularly.... and there are usually people selling them on craigslist, pirate, ck5, etc.

how much would a shop charge for labor?
a shop or a dealer? theres a big diff! i want to think that dealer rates are $90/hr. Shop rates around $70/hr or so here. My buddy was quoted $600 to have his engine swapped. We done it instead and saved the money. When he had his trans rebuilt, they charged him $200 to pull it out and put it back in not counting the amount to rebuild it. As far as gears/locker, $1100 or so is probably about right for them w/ install.

this is a v6-v8 swap

I know a guy who works for a dealer and does stuff on the side i might look into that when the time comes
