Default motor w/ 100k miles. what'* it worth??

Went drag racing tonight up at Pacific Raceways and had an older man come up and talk to me about how he has a series 1 (with the tranny, i might add) laying around at his place waiting for an engine bay to be put in. It has 100k miles and seems to be in good condition. I'm not sure if I could afford to have a spair engine laying around, but was wondering what I would/should offer the guy for it if i was interested? I asked him what he was looking to get for it and all he said in respose was "make me an offer"....



Watcha guys think?

Well, if it'* a 94/95, you'll either need the wiring harness and PCM, or you'll have to put your SC/TB on it, and your O2 sensor and MAF.

Make the guy a low offer....say $300 and see what he says? You'd have all the time in the world to work it over for when the time comes. And it'll give you spares if you need them.

Trans is not compatible with your 92.

Wiring is different. The 94/95 had a trans temp sender in the trans, and the shift solonoids are wired differently. I've heard it'* possible to swap a couple wires inside to make it work, and it'* been done here once, but no details were posted.

My advice would be to get the tag ID'* off the trans, go to a trans shop, and ask them.

Salvage yard pricing for that, the trans wwould be roughly 3-400, engine about 7-800.

Well, I paid $400 for an engine minus super that was supposed to have only 28k on it. I also got a whole car with 177k on it for 400, so there is an east coast range for you

Engine at 100k miles, no problem. Tranny at 100k miles...iffy...

Although if it was well cared for, you should be able to get about another 80k out of it.
