Also what is a ball park figure for installing an engine into a car ?

You will need the Y pipe from the new engine (the 2.5 had a dual port exhaust and the 2.2 I believe will have a single port exhaust).
Search aroubd here - a very common swap.
New timing belt, seal baffle plate, most of us would do atleast timing belt idlers and probably seals while it's out. You do the major maintenance and the engine should be good for another 100k.

And you never know a member here may be close and be able to help you out or point you to someone local who has done this before.
It takes less than a day. All the electronics plug right in. Only thing you'll be missing is a place to bolt the PS lines to on the passenger side of the engine at the intake.
I am assuming both engines have EGR which is a pretty safe bet. The 2,5 for sure has it - look on back of engine towards drivers firewall for a hocky puck looking thing with green writing on the top. Make sure the 2.2 has it too and you're golden. Odds are very high that a 98 2.2 has this.
If the 2.2 does not have this you will never be able ot get the CEL out - which means it won' tpass emissions if you need them.

The little hockey puck thing with the green and white sticker I believe is hte vacuum for the EGR. The engine will either have both pieces or neither.
You need it to have them.
