That really is too bad. Now what is your plan? Unload? Swap low mileage replacement? Rebuild (no idea if can be done with whatever damage you may have)??

Here is a V10 rebuild (yes I know you have a V8 but it is the "in and out" that is interesting here to me). Anything is possible.

I am in the Navy so I don't have that kind of time, I found a decent mileage replacement but ill have to pay someone to put it in which sucks! If I had the time I could put it in myself but sadly I don't.

Now I just need to find a reasonable installer in san diego :/

Hey, at least having the timing belt / water pump done on the one you are swapping will be inexpensive (don't skip this): I mean nothing like doing it on the bench!

Happy to hear you are keeping it, hate seeing a Treg go to scrap.
