If you have a tech school near you that teaches mechanics, you can get it done for the cost of materials, in your case a used short block.

I am having a door replaced, a panel straightened, trim installed, radiator core support replaced, wheel house replaced, and painted where needed, for $200 or less (I picked up the parts at the local PNP for about $100).

Bill has a great idea........... Nab will give you a great deal on replacing the engine. I would hate to see you make a mistake................

.............buuuuuuuttt......If you do decide to part out I would be interested in your tires and wheels. :)

That's the spirit. Dont just replace, upgrade.

Trust me, if you junk it, you'll regret it later. However, if you part it, I need some patch panels....
