So long as they don't tack a core charge on top $385 for a VERY clean engine with 70k on it isn't bad.
Ok ThanksThe 3.8 swap is identical to the 3.5 swap except you need a few 3.5 parts on the 3.8...
Is it really I thought from reading There's way more to it than that like new computer etc.
What is there to want for performance parts? The only difference is the geometry of the headers. Otherwise everything else is the same.
The bumper is limiting the amount of air flow across your radiator.. I've already tested and confirmed this myself. My coolant temps significantly dropped by opening the bumper to allow more air flow. 210ºf driving stock bumper down to thermostat temperature of 180ºf after cutting bumper. Not saying that you have to, but it's the only way that I KNOW 100% that will knock the temps way down.Okay, so I really don't understand why my engine is running so hot. Not only does it melt away the windshield washer nozzles, but I noticed the other day the car was struggling to keep the engine cool. It was around 90 degrees that day, driving home from work, and the temperature slowly crept up a little, and stayed there until I came to a rest. Oil temp was 223 degrees, and all the fans were on. I just replaced the radiator last year, and I've had this engine in for 2 years.
In addition to this crap, I'm just starting to throw the p0455, evap emission control system leak, out of the blue. Got a new gas cap, nothing. Tested the solenoid under the hood, works. Vacuum tested the lines, no leaks.
So, right now, I have my front license plate zip tied to the front grill. You think if I remove it, I should see not only lower coolant temps, but lower under the hood temps? I looked up hood spacers, those things look terrible! Maybe I'll adjust the hood bump stops up a little. As it is, I already have poor bumper placement after I hit a deer a while back. :noplease:The bumper is limiting the amount of air flow across your radiator..

I'm sure hood spacers and/or a vented hood would help get the hot air out of the engine bay as well.
6g75 is better in my opinion. And around 2k if you do it your self. 800 for engine 300 for tranny. (Rough estimates) and whatever little things you need/want.running into some engine problems with my 02 Eclipse GT(AT), keeps telling me i have a misfire in cylinder 6, shop told me i mght have a bad piston and might have to do an engine swap, as i'm looking into these different engine types i'm assuming the best swap for my car is the 6G74. or is there a better motor to swap it out with? i searched and found this thread but need to be a little more specific on what i can do in this situation.....also how much does will it end up costing to do the total engine swap like have everything working fine since i see that some ppl have heating issues?
