5k? in what planet are we talking?
you gotta find yourself a mexican mechanic who knows his junkyards
i put a 60k engine into a 200k truck for a little over $2k
i had just upgraded tires and front end and wasn’t gonna throw out the old beast
same guy was offering me a bmw for $2.5K. had 200k miles in odometer but engine was about 100K. took it for a test drive—sweet sweet sweet i4 (i drive a v8).
