    If that was all that was wrong with it I'd say that's a good price... but I'm no expert.....

    well could burnt out pistons lead to other problems that may be unknown at the time?

    If your goin to buy the motor for a swap.. its best to rebuild the bottom end while the motor is out of the car

    They make about 140 horses stock, and about 128 ft/lbs torque. So if you were to compare to a B16, less horses, more torque...

    That would be your best bet.. instead of takin your time doing the swap and them miles down the road you not only have a bad bearing, but something else is wrong now.. doesnt make sense to do the work twice!
