    hey figured i would ask a few of you what you thought about this. I was wondering what would be the cheaper or best option for me weather to rebuild my current motor (not blown) or to buy a crate motor i do want to stick with the 4 cylinder 2.3 either way its better with the gas prices these days.

    Depends on your budget. Around me, I know a shop selling a 2.3 crate engine for 300.00 so I would swap. Look around see what you can find that will suit your budget

    2.3 crate for 300z!!!! Buy it and sell it for profit lmao
  5. x2, all depends on your budget and what you're going to have done to it. Try looking around on craigslist and see what you can find. They're mostly used, but sometimes you'll find a real good deal.

    ya im not sure what a crate engine goes for around me, and my budget is not much at all lol it will take a while to get the money the way things are going for me right now
  10. Is your engine running alright for now? If so, save up some money and look on either or They sometimes have good deals on crate engines.
