New Engine

Whats the best way and cheapest way to replace engine or find a used one? I bent a rod in mine so its hard to decide. Shop wants to charge 7k for a whole new rebuilt engine thatís including labor and the new engine

Junkyard motor from an Outlander is cheap. New rods are equally as cheap if you can install your own. I think it's about $600 for a set of forged rods if you're feeling it. I can get an exact price from my wholesaler if interested. I typically sell kits of rods, bearings, pistons, and thrust washers together

I think his car is a GT. Not sure if that is a factor in the search. How you bent the rod?

They told me it was better off to get a whole new engine instead of rebuilding it which makes no sense. I have a GT my thing the timing belt snapped and ruined my valves an pistons. Not sure since they done wanna open it up. Its a stressful situation due to I still owe on it.

Where do you live? I have an extra engine in So cal but can’t ship it. If you are close by I can sell you the engine and we can swap it for you and you’ll be spending a quarter of that already quoted price

You’re not better off doing that, it’s just easier for them to do that’s why they said that
Of course a properly rebuilt engine with good components will be better than some used engine with unknown mileage and wear

Ah. You'll need to source a 6G75 Mivec motor

Aka, 4G Eclipse, maybe Pejero. Rebuild for sure.

Obviously a rebuilt engine will be better if done properly, but then it’s #1 going to cost more than dropping in a used engine and #2 you have to find a shop that knows how to properly rebuilt the engine, a lot of basic mechanic shops won’t want to rebuild an engine believe it or not, they just want to swap a used one or already built one in for you

Downsides to swapping in a used engine though is of course the mileage, age, and wear on all of its components, plus unless you can verify the mileage on the car it’s coming out of, don’t trust what some junk yard or scrapper tells you the mileage is, even then it might not be accurate if it isn’t that cars original engine

Of course there’s always the possibility of the engine you get used and swap in may not even work either unless you see it run while still in the old car yourself

Just the risks you take, if u have the $$ and u want a rebuilt engine that’s the way to go, if u want to save $$ and gamble with a used engine then you know what you’re getting into both ways

Yeah you got a point I might have to start from scratch.
