H23 with spun rod bearing

First off I'm new here. Have a fourth gen with F22A (yes, yes, I know). Been wanting to build a H23/22 Frankenstien motor and found an H23 locally but it has a spun rod bearing. I want to start from the ground up and find a new H23 crank, scat rods, and wiesco pistons. My question is, would it be worth it to buy the motor or is it toast and not worth the time and money?
Thanks for any help!

Re: H23 with spun rod bearing

well depends on the price and depends on weather or not it has a spun rod bearing or main bearing, if its a spun main bearing and they drove it for any amount of time after it happened then theres a good chance that the crank channel in the block is going to be scared up then your only hope is that it can be line bored out which that is a very slim chance, and if it can't be then that h23 block has become a boat anchor!

Re: H23 with spun rod bearing

price on the motor???

If you are planning to build the h23 anyway, I would just do that. No h23/f22 swap.

Just build it for boost while its already apart.

Re: H23 with spun rod bearing

I spun a rod bearing in my H23....i decided to build it with new crank, forged rods/pistons, etc. If I were to do it again I would micropolish the stock crank get a new rod and put it all back together.....it would be much much much cheaper than any other option. I guess it depends on what you want to spend.
