    Why don't you just replace the rings?

    For the amount of time and trouble it would take to...

    1. Remove head
    2. Remove oil pan
    3. Drop rods/pistons
    4. Replace rings
    5. Hone sleeve
    6. Reinstall pistons and rods
    7. Bolt it all back up
    8. Break it in again

    Don't you think he could have had another Y8 engine for less cash than that?

    exactly as calesta said, the shop thats going to be doing the install for me gave me a quote of $1450 just to hone out the block, then it was going to run me around $600 more for rods and pistons, for that amount i can have them do the swap, convert my auto to manual and still have a nice chunk left over, just finding a decent engine is proving to be un fun :(

    as is right now im just driving this engine into the ground
