Pricing out Fusion motor swap, couple of questions...

OK, I'm pricing out putting in a Fusion motor. I found an 09 with 70k on it for about $600.

I need help finding out the most affordable headers I can get. I found some OBX ones on Ebay for about 400. I can't seem to find any threads on headers, like a buyers guide or anything. Any suggestions? Will the cheapy ebay ones do fine? Is there a more affordable option?

Next I hear that people are finding all 6 coil packs for like $50 somewhere. I have yet to find any such deal. I paid $75 for one at NAPA.

Any other things I should absolutely replace? I mean if I find anything that is obviously broke I will replace it. But I'm mostly concerned about the motor melting down again like has happened to so many victims with the Duratec VVT. I'm pretty positive I went through the same scenario as everyone else. Bad coil packs, mix igniting in the precats, blah blah blah.

The cars body and interior are still in good shape. If I can do a motor swap for about a grand I would like to go that route instead of buying a different car.

Any suggestions?
