Install another engine and sell it. You will make alot more than you would parting it out. Plus, you won't have an eyesore parts car in the yard. You migh get about $2,000-$3,000 depending on everything.

depends what you are planning to do with the car...

If your going to sell it drop a h23 (used motor 500-800 dollars).
Dont plan on parting out the car quick if you need the money and have parents who want the car out of the backyard.

ummmm...hmotors sells used engines. i'm pretty sure there is no way in hell you're going to be able to buy a new motor ANYWHERE. maybe at honda but even then i fully doubt it.

You can buy a brand new, all American B18C from Dart. You can buy a new H22 from Honda, but you have to pay out the ass for each individual part.

well the main point was that Hmotors does not sell new engines...they are all used. I wouldn't want the OP getting confused. Im sure he's probably smarter than that though. :)

depends on your definition of "beginner" :aww

i would honestly say that swapping a motor is easier than doing a T-belt. not that you asked about T-belts, but its something to compare it to lol.


basically, if you can unplug and unbolt stuff then you can swap a motor lol. putting an h22 in would mean that you'll need to add a wire or two and plug in another ECU, but that goes back to unplugging and unbolting stuff

While it's out, might as well build it...although you did say you were short on cash, but depending on how short...
Yeah i dont have enough money to build one. ill probally build one in a few years but right now ill just buy a h22. i wanna boost it to. i would get a h23 for boost due to the lower compression but i dont really want to drag or race my lude. just want something special.

well if you're mechanically inclined then you can most likely do it, it will just take a while.
