to swap or not?

a friend of mine was rear ended on the highway and it totaled his capri. the engine and tranny are still good, its a t5 trans and a 5.0 with twin turbo setup. he is scraping his car becuse he got another one. he doesnt want much for it prob $200 abouts. its it worth it? and it has the computer and everything......i would like to but....should I???

i have a friend (dandb64) who could help me with it.

if you've got the entire vehicle that you can use and can afford the time and money and downtime of your truck for the project, I say go for it!
