Icon5 need an opinion

hey guys i need and opinion (as some may know i had a 92 si which overheated and i sold =[)

but now i found another 92 si that needs a headgasket. would if it be wise to pick it up (only $400) and replace the head gasket...btw im on a budget so i cant really do a motor swap...maybe swap the head.
the dude said it overheated and needs a hose replaced and i think the timing belt also.

anyways, what would u guys think is a wise decisions

Re: need an opinion

What's your budget?

Timing belt can get pricey with all the other preventative maintenance you're gonna wanna do while you're in there. Headgaskets are cheap, but if the head or block needs to be machined, that's gonna cost a few benjamins.

Re: need an opinion

$500 for everything? Or $500 in repairs on top of the cost of the car? If machine work needs to be done on the head/block, you can kiss that budget goodbye.

Re: need an opinion

If the body and interior are in presentable shape I'd say go for it.
