need motor or core san diego 88 190e 2.3

hi everyone. well my car needs a motor or a good core
don,t know where to look in the san diego area.
maybe a good used motor or a donor six cylinder car.
i tried the parts forum but no luck
the motor in my car needs everything, cam, pistons ect...
be easier to find a motor that only needs a basic rebuild
would love to put a 3.0 in it but may be too much without a donor
thanks for this space

Could also try All-Smash, which is near Brownfield/Otay Mesa, actully just below the mesa. If you know the back way to Heritage Road from 805 via Main Street you pass very close by. Phone # is 619-421-5397, they might be able to provide a complete running engine for you.
