two years ago, the government here banned any used parts to enter the country which made such engines obsolete as noone does support them with spare parts and used parts can not come in any more..
people here now dont buy such engines any more.. they all go for the older ones or mainly install LS engines
Well if u go thru the hassle of putting in an older and weaker engine in wont u run into the same issue if something happens to that one?
I guess it all comes down to what the car means to u at this point. u have the full engine now... So it will be the matter of (worst case) a REBUILD to as simlle as HEAD GASKETS.
