Yep. I need a new engine, and will probably have my mechanic do the timing belt and water pump while he's in there...maybe a new clutch. Erg.

I have a 94 V6 LS.

He told me I could get an engine with 75k miles on it for $1300. Should I go for it?

Or does anyone have a place I could look to get an engine either used or new for cheaper? I'm hurting here but I want to keep the 6...

Thanks for all the help so far, I'm scared...

ebay usually has a few KLZEs for about $1100+freight.

Or contact Mike Hughes (hughes46) in the For Sale forum. He may be your best bet.

Thank you to all those who have helped me! And a special thanks to mhughes and rylinkus for going out of the way to answer my questions and help!

I ended up going with Noyan just because of the timing of this whole incident and I need to be able to drive it ASAP...otherwise I'll be paying the difference on a rental car.

But there's good news, the $1050 I'm paying is for a KLZE. I called today to ask which I'd be getting (KL03 or KLZE) and they said, "whichever you'd prefer." So that was that. Now I guess I just have to tell my mechanic that it takes a different intake...or... well, we'll see.

I'm excited for the new engine but hoping my mechanic will do all right.

Thanks again!

hope you swap doing well

the pricing for Kl03 and Klze are quite diffrerent

Kl03 usually going for around 300-600, depends on mileage

Klze going for about 850-1200, you also need the Jspec ECU or re-program the ECU to fully optimize the performance, cost about an extra $300, and you need to get the EGR stuff working
to pass MD/DC smog

Thanks Fuzzy,

I got the ECU and will likely install it in the next couple of days. Do I need to get a different MAF for my car? I've heard mixed opinions... And how much do those run?

Thanks in advance,

~Jared
