What you should do it buy a better m3 for 23g's... or source a used motor (ebay)

23K is not the way to go!

Buy an engine on ebay with low miles, change rod bearings etc. and do other upgrades to it before you put it in your car. Also, you can buy a whole car that's wrecked for about half!

I could have helped you if you were closer to Dallas.

Here is an example of a wrecked car:
