Those guys are the best and their prices are extremely fair as well. I was able to source my cinnamon interior through them.

Yea I checked their inventory. Decent pricing for the motors. Sadly they only have a couple. There are many out there. But if I will be spending money for the swap, I am trying to find the best bang for the buck. I am trying to figure out if its possible to rebuild the engine without spending thousands on the engine+labor.

Could help more if you explained why you need to swap motors?

The motor gave out on me. I believe a rod or something down below seized up not letting the engine crank. I would think, taking apart the engine, diagnose it, and possibly rebuilding it would be better then just swapping motors.
