My Ride: gobbles oil like a B
that seems relatively legit to me although I've never had to deal with an engine swap, there is a sh*t load of work swapping in a new motor, so think about labor cost plus the cost of a new or used engine. But honestly dude? why put a new engine into a 1995 maxima for 3K when he can just go buy another newer used car for that much? He must love that maxima something fierce.

No he is moving to a different state in a few months, the registration and insurance costs way more in NYC then Illinois where he is moving. If he keeps the car all he needs to do is swap out the motor. We have found a nice motor for 900 with shipping yet shops still give us 3000to do the swap. I would do it for him but all my tools are up in mass
