If you have enough time/patience to start swapping motors from one crappy car to another, then have at it.

so if the engine has just been rebuilt then why not ... sell the car as is and be up front and honest ... show receipts for rebuild and hope that you get enough to buy that ford aspire you're lookin for

the 2.2 Eco is a fairly common engine in GM cars, should be a fairly easy swap among any of the other small Eco cars.
