J30a



#1
I asked this in the engine tech threads... i dont know where to really ask this. But I picked up a J30A v6 engine tonight for $250. It runs. it does not have a wirring harness or a transmission. Did i get a good deal? whats it worth? What can I do with it?

Any good running engine for $250 is a good deal in my book. Now comes the decision of how much money you wanna drop to get that thing in your car or if you just wanna sell it,

really either way its not going to be much. a jdm j30a with low miles can still be had for around $400. so your probably looking at a small profit at best

I am not sure on the miles. Id say 150K +. and I have not picked the engine up yet. My buddy said it was a J30A... nothing past tht. When I pick it up tomarrow what do I need to look for? how do I tell if its jdm or usdm?

well I figured for $250 it wasnt a bad deal. I was looking on ebay and $500 was about all for one. Honestly... what should I do with the thing? my buddy says its Usdm J30A1... had 130K on the speedo.
