    Engine swap in 04 switchback

    I blew up the engine in my switchback bad (cylinders, pistons, head, and who knows how the bottom end fared) and I am wondering if a 98 xc 700 motor would bolt right into my mounts? I was also wondering if I could swap all my perc components onto the motor as well. How much power to pipes for those motors add? I've seen them on ebay for pretty cheap used.
    Thanks
    Josh

    It should fit without issue, using the 2004 engine straps.
    The PERC system will not work on the 98 motor.

    what are the differences that swapping all of the perc components won't make it work? I don't have the wiring harness from the 98 so I have to use the parts from the 2004 anyways.
