    I have a 95 del sol with a D16Z6 in it that's blown up ... I know someone with a mini me engine I'm wanting to buy and put in ... Are the mini me engines any good ??

    depends
    depends on what was used
    depends on how it was put together
    depends on what condition its in
    way too many variables
    it can be a great little engine that is comparable to a factory SOHC engine or it could be a POS

    Bottom end is shot pretty much ... Replaces rod and main bearings but it's still knocking hard in the bottom end

    The guy is selling it mated to a 5 speed trans for $350 ... It runs good with no leaks ... Someone put it in an integra body and he took it out for a B engine to go in

    for $350 might as well go for it
    even as a stop gap, it will give you a running engine while you save for another swap without dumping a bunch of cash
