Default OHC VTEC Engine for Sale

Posting up for anybody looking for a swap.

OHC VTEC engine for sale from a crashed VTEC.

Its got around 85K on the Odo,

Engine + Gearbox + Radiator + ECU + entire harness can be lifted off the car.

The car has crashed in on the right but missed the radiator. Engine is still in the car, in a workshop near banashankari stage II.

contact Sandeep 9880602973 (he knows the mech).

Hey,

Where in India can you get them for 80k I would be interested. I am referring to
JDM Stage 3 Vtec Engine in perfect condition + Gearbox + Radiator + ECU + entire wiring harness.

If it is abroad then you will obviously have to overhaul them after they come to India.

Smarter choice would be to overhaul the engine at the country of origin.
It can even be run-in and tested on an engine dyno.

Mclarens guess is spot on. He is asking around that. Negotiations will depend on your skills.

I know that but how many guys have access to the contacts at country of origin to get the same done and most important it will no longer cost 80K.

Now, this becomes subjective.
A little digging will find decent mechs to rebuild and the risk factor of getting a bad engine is zero which is important because the south-eastern countries are not exaclty reputed for trust-worthiness.
U want some contacts in bankok,heh?
