In short engine was totally finished as it ran 20 years.
Started Survey for d15b:

Shafeeq morr: 30k
Daak khana(lalu khait) 28k final
I got deal with guddu bhai at lalu khait in 28k. As a member of pw nd my friend got same assembly few days back in 28k nd his ride is flying MashAllah(civic 1995).
I take ride of his car nd decided to buy assembly from that person.
Not spend much time for searching good mechanic as i have link with Naazik mechanic as he is one of the best mechanic in karachi(all sports cars tunned by him like supra subaru 350z rx's with 2jz etc) located at haidry market.
I went to mechanic at 11am.
He started removing engine. Engine was removed in 25 min.
Thn i went to buy engine with mechanic. He checked three engines nd final 1 which i bought.
Power steering pump 2000
Distributor with plug wires 2000
Nd some other things.
Total cost 36000.
Returned to mechanic shop he was inspecting gear box nd all other things.
Thn again went for clutch + pressure plates.
Got in 3000 with original leather.
Clutch bearing nd a little bearing for plates 1500.
Rediator service 300.

1 foundation was broken nd air wall was blocked. Both 900.
All other jugaars removed.
Put everything on factory setting.
Engine was swapped at 10pm but suddenly rain was started nd there were no electricity. At 1 am car was started nd came home mechanic told me to check nd park the car final setting will be done tommorow.
I had a run MASHALLAH swap was better thn my expectations.
Car is so light pick up is awesome MASHALLAH. Soundless engine.
Next day i handed over the car to mechanic nd went office. At night i took the car nd MASHALLAH car was better thn last night.
I was thinking for coolant but mechanic told me to run it for 1 or 2 days for checking any leakage thn put the coolant.
