engine swap

engine block update. While all the suggestions are quite enlightening regarding reboring and having a sleve incertec, I opted to purchase an engine with only 100,000 miles on it with a new valve job, including all new retainers. I swapped one cam cause one lob in my old engine had scoring.. Im using my same injection with chain and guides from old engine. guides are new and so is the chain. The new engine had a chain break event and top end was done about 3-5 thousand miles engine was out of the same year car my is.....soooooo, the big thing is I talked them down from $2400 to $1400. That's for a complete engine........I also rebuilt my trans while it was out....We dropped the new engine in yesterday and will hook everything up today and tomorrow...Ill post pictures later.....
