So basically you're getting a long block and manifolds?

Why are you not getting the harness? that's the big buck item with a fuel injection swap...

See if he will cut the exhaust past the O2 sensors. If he isn't giving up the wiring then he probably won't give up the fuel relay's. There a two in-line, I would ask. Alt and Disti are expensive new, look for those as well.

Yep, get the two downpipes from the manifolds that hold the O2 sensors, they are boltable so don't need cutting.

Get the ECU/ECM! and all the other electric control units, also make sure you get the O2 sensors. By all means get the wiring harness, he'll have NO need for it unless putting in another 3F-E! You should also get all the control units to where the various vacuum lines run for the EGR etc (sits atop the port wheel well inside the hood). Get ANYTHING you can with which he's willing to part, I assure you from my experience this made a big difference.
