Urgent Help Needed! M20

Hello,

Back in September I was driving home from work in a hurricane and hydro locked my m20 that's in my 325i and destroyed the engine. I've been looking for an engine for a while now and finally found one on Kijiji and started getting things together. I am attending university so I couldn't do the swap here. I ordered $500 in parts for the engine, arranged to have the car shipped 700km and booked a ticket home for a midterm break coming up.

Tonight I found out the engine might no longer be available and I will find out tomorrow. I was a bit distraught when I heard this and I am in a bad situation now. I was looking forward to this for a while and would like to find another engine. I search kijiji in Ontario, Quebec and all of the Maritime provinces but can't find anything. I was wondering if anyone knows of a M20 engine available, around 175 XXX or less, w/ accessories. I will pay for the shipping obviously. Only catch is the break is next week and I would need to find one asap, by Wednesday or Thursday at the latest.

If anyone has any information on where I could pick one up please let me know. I am really bummed about this and would like to be able to get my car working again.

Thanks a million,
Aaron
