blew my motor. need another motor

so i finally fixed my cv shafts and got to drive my lude yesterday. i was having some fun until my motor blew and it ended up not being so much fun.

If anyone has a motor I could purchase off of them or know somewhere I can get one please let me know. my budget is supper small. i know its not very possible to find a motor for a low price but im hoping i can catch a break.

im looking for an h23 or h22. thanks.

Re: blew my motor. need another motor

Not sure what your budget is but here is where I got my engine for my 92 Si. It's a JDM H22 for $1899.00 plus shipping.

Here is another for $1200.

Re: blew my motor. need another motor

tigerjapanese doesn't take the best care of their motors from the only 1 i've seen.
I ordered mine my motor from Hmotors like 5 years ago.

What happened when u "blew" ur motor? I once had a clutch give out on me that sounded like rod knock. I thought I was gonna shoot a rod out of the side of the block.

Re: blew my motor. need another motor

i am pretty sure i spun a rod or something to that sort. it still drives but its noisy as heck. i had a couple people look at it and they all said that that is what happened.

as for my budget I can barely afford something in the range of 0-600 dollars. and yes this hurts. im a college student and I am already paying a little under 500 dollars a month for car insurance. im hoping and praying to catch a break

Re: blew my motor. need another motor

spun a bearing you mean. so you have rod knock. Ok, yeah if it still runs you need to break it down and check it out. Parts may still be salvagable.

That's a lot for a insurance. I say switch to liability coverage since you are in college...drive safe!...park in safe spots...then you can afford the motor.

Min Liability $750/year for a 22/m in Virginia. Just think how much money you can save.

Re: blew my motor. need another motor

Bro if you think it's salvageable, we can rip it apart and check it out if you haven't already done that? Lol. I got free time these days.

i have to have full coverage because i took a laon out for my car. and what I am paying now is the cheapest I could find. i shopped around alot. if i pay off my car I can be put on liability and save alot of money.

I am located in iowa city iowa. like i said I have looked at tigerland motors and I was reading the feedbacka nd alot of it was good but it didnt seem like they take care of their stuff. and I dont have 800 bucks for a motor. I have prolly around 600.

your record is probably fairly clean. i have had 5 tickets this year including two almost fatal car accidents. I am on probation now for a year and if I get one more ticket I lose my license. dont worry though. i have learned from my mistakes but racing lil noobs in their civics is just to much fun. so I would say that what I am paying is ok concidering that my license should be taken away. I was almost paying 2500 for 6 months a littl while ago
