    Secondly what is process of getting the engine number changed on the registeration papers and how much does it cost.

    Car is a mercedes 93 model and registered in Karachi.

    What would be the effect on resale of this car due to swapped engine? as compared to if the original engine was in the car.

    resale is low when you swap an engine. the car that you have in mind is a gamble. merc may even get you the same price regardless of the engine swap.

    it is a good car. i encourage you to go for it. if the owner had told me about the swap up front, i would have surely bought it. its just that i checked it myself when he brought the papers after the deal was sealed. i felt bad as it came as a surprise for me and just left without paying him. dont forget to take the original lights.
