dude I can get four or more E16i's tomarrow for 150.00 each at my local wrecking yard. The E series is still very common in junk yards why would you pay that much for one plus you have to ship it and the ebay one was 150 just to ship.

If you take your time (and have the right tools) its not terribly difficult actually. If you are going to build it to OEM specs, it is not worth it as 30K motors are cheaper than rebuilding. If you are building it for force induction or otherwise big power, than that's another story.

pshaw! get on ebay. most of the bearings, rings, etc are there right now. you should be able to reuse most of the parts (check it out BEFORE buying things), without rework. a hone job on the cylinders, light polish on the crank, reuse the original pistons (if they're not horribly scuffed) and rods, and give 'er a valve job... not a whole lot to spend, really (especially if you get a good deal on a rebuilt head on ebay... i got a turbo head, rebuilt, fer $100.), just keep your eyeballs open.

waaaayyyyy overpriced. blocks are NOT hard to come by. complete running engines, maybe.... but that's still an outrageous price.
i knew it was overpriced. And I tried looking for good blocks before and had a hard time...i dont count junkyards as good sources for engines personally.
