yeah really... what's wrong with your car specifically? maybe we can help u figure out how to fix it instead of spendin money on a new engine... you'd probably be spendin the same or maybe less.

I'm gonna take a wild guess and say he threw a rod. At least that's what I think of when someone says their engine blew up.

im not sure yet i havent had time to pull it, heres what happened i was going about 120 in 5th sitting at 4900rpms when it started tapping and overheating, i got it to stop over heating pulled off checked everything over fluids all that. headed back home and it just made a loud bang and dumped all the oil and im pretty sure i heard **** flying off. i popped the hood everything looked normal, crawled as far underneath as i could and oil pan was still intact. i cant find a whole in the block unless its underneath the intake where i cant see, im pulling the motor wednsday or thursday to try and figure it out

take a look behind the exhaust manifold on the block


just buy a d16y7 or a d16y8 engine block and put your head and everthing on it.
