1999 SL2
Default Where to find rebuilt engines?

I have a 99 SL2, 160K miles, and I've had a bad ring for awhile now, and it's burning more and more smoke now. Did the compression test, and I don't remember the number, but it was below 100.

Instead of just getting the piston fixed, I was thinking of finding a rebuilt engine, since I heard it may be about the same amount. Does anyone know where I can find one? I've tried looking online, but haven't found any that are less than $2500.

Question Re: Where to find rebuilt engines?

If your willing to wait, I'm pulling my engine with 133,000mi and planning on rebuilding it and selling it. Weigh your options as mine will not have a warranty but I will beat any price your going to find.. I'm only looking to recover the cost to rebuild a donor engine I purchased.. let me know. You can check out my progress here:

The engine I'm running on is also spitting oil past my rings.. It will be rebuilt with new rings, pistons, and I have 2 heads to choose to rebuild as well. Everything will be mic'd out by a certified engine shop. will also have new gaskets and seals throughout.

It may take a month but if your interested, let me know.

I dont know if you have an advance auto parts around you or not, but I know they sell rebuilt engines. They run about $2500 or so.
