    surplus engines

    Hey all. Where can I buy surplus engines? I drive an 89 Lancer and it's already in need of a top overhaul. I was thinking I might be better off buying a surplus engine instead. Any ideas where I can find em? And approximately how much would one cost?

    TIA!

    the_noise: Evangelista and Banaue offer a lot of surplus engines. Approximate price: 15K and up. You can save a bit if you find someone who wants to upgrade to a more powerful engine, most performance shops that perform engine swaps would be glad to give you one for significantly less =)

    Yep, checking with the shops that do swaps can help you reel a good deal.

    However, if its just a top overhaul, it may be safer to work on your own engine if you plan to just buy the same engine surplus. Getting surplus is usually a hit or miss thang and most of the time. When some of my friends get surplus engines, we also usually open it up and change things like the gaskets, bearings, belts, water pump, thermostat, get it compression tested, etc... just to make sure its running well and we can do the fixes while the engine is still out.

    When we opened up my mom's Corolla 1.3 before, we changed the timing belt, bearings, gaskets, and piston rings. It didnt reach 15K (with OEM parts sourced from Banawe) and we ended up with a fresh engine afterwards.

    Aside from Banawe and Evangelista, you can also check out Marikina for surplus engines as there are some warehouses here where the shipments are dropped but they're a bit secluded and far apart.

    So I guess I should have the car looked at first and at least ask how much a top overhaul costs, eh?

    Thanks for the advice. Will look into it.
