Greetings From Michigan
Im recently a new member as of 5 minutes ago.
Ive owned my 97 Regal now for almost 5 years now.
Shes in great shape almost everything has been maintained and updated as needed.
Now I just threw a rod this past weekend and face some difficult choices.
Id love to just hand it off to some engine shop and have them do it with no hassle but i dont know if i wanna pay that much. Is it worth it?
I just came in contact with a mechanic thats a friend of a friend, he has everything i need to pull the motor and he said he would put a new motor in from the junkyard..replace all the seals and whateevr else the motor would need. he also said i could be there and help if i want. Im thinking i wanna do it myself with this mechanic I just met but I dont really have the knowledge to do it myself or know if i should trust this guy to know what he should about these motors. He wants 700$ for his help and says a junkyard motor with the my supercharger should be good...plus with my motor out i cant clean it and paint everything like i want...Please..what do I do what parts should i get..what year motor..I read a little bit but just seems fitting to come here since i actually own a Regal GS.
Thank you all!
