Hey,

My Summer vacation is going to be starting soon and I'm looking for something to keep me busy.

My plans were to try and rebuild a m20 engine over the summer, just as a learning experience and to hopefully drop into a e30 shell once I find one.

So if any of you guys have one laying around that you want to get rid of just let me know.

Thanks.

Would I be crazy to think I could get one for less than $250?

depends on the shape and how complete it is i guess, I was just wondering because i have a spare m20 that I want to rebuild when i have some money, but for the right price everything is for sale right.
lol Anyways right now my motor has 460k on it and runs good, just want a newer motor for boost.

If your still looking once i swap in the newer motor i'd be willing to let the old one go for pretty cheap. But it would be fairly incomplete depending on how much i'd be getting for it.

Problem is an oil pan goes for 180 or so, so you would have trouble finding a motor with all the parts for that cheap.

Anyways, good luck

I was only putting the number out there, Wasn't too sure on how much these engines cost.

When you do come around to swapping your engine let me know and we can work something out.

I have a 325i bottom end, maybe an intake manifold.

But I need the head. So an engine minus the head, you interested?

Sorry everyone, I've decided that I'm not going to rebuild a motor and just save my money up to find a clean e30. Thanks to everyone for there offers tho.
