Depends really. Sometimes you can get a great buy for the VR6. I would say anywhere from $1200-2000. It is best to have the whole car as a donor so you don't forget any parts you could need.

A tuner shop may charge anywhere from $4-6000 for a complete engine swap. I would recommend going that route if you do not feel comfortable with wiring. The VR6 is probably the second easiest swap. Or could be the first, depending who you talk to. If you get a VR6 Corrado, almost everything can bolt right in.
