    The yards do get a premium for 2.4L engines even with high mileage...
    I found one on ebay for $550 in your area but it has 170k miles on it..
    Engine Assembly Hyundai Tiburon 03 04 05 06 07 08 | eBay

    If the top of the pistons and the cylinder walls are ok... I'd say repair what you have.
    Does the head look like it's repairable? What is the mileage on the engine?
    Looks like even an expensive head rebuild on an engine with under 100k miles on it may be better than other alternatives...

    Thanks, I figured if any body would know, you would.....

    Any idea what the cost to repair a 06 optima w/a 4cyl that snapped the belt and bent valves would cost to repair. Wost case scenario...

    Thanks again...

    The Hyundai "G6BA" V6 was used in Optimas from 2000~2006 and quite a few other models...

    See...
    Hyundai Delta engine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    You might have to use sensors/senders from the engine you have removed as emissions can change from year to year and the electronics (ECU/ECM TCU/TCM) may look for specific "data"..or..sensor...

    A V6 to V6 swap IS doable a would be lot easier than a 4I to V6.

    As far as putting a V6 into a 4i ....
    It "could" be done...BUT... a lot of parts would have to be swapped also..
    Wiring harnesses (under the hood and in he cab), suspension, brakes, electronics...
    I guess "if" you had both cars it would be possible...not not quick or easy...
    A good summer project...

    Hey DavesSpectra.

    Can you tell me if an 06 Optima v6 would be the same used in a 04 Optima v6....

    or

    Could you put the 04 v6 into an 06 that has a 4cyl....

    Sorry for the limited info, but thats all I have at this point...

    Thanks,

    Neil

    Hi Dave ??

    I have an 07 Spectra with the airbag light on. I've had it scanned and they tell me that the control module is still good and it must be a wiring issue. So I was wondering since you have the knowledge if you have any suggestions on what to look for. I've removed all the connectors and made sure they were clean and properly connected but I'm not sure where to go from here. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Got home Wednesday afternoon after sleeping in the U-Haul truck in a WalMart parking lot (got to the salvage yard 10 minutes too late and they were closed)..
    Got the car home and started doing preliminary repairs... Replaced both driver side doors and did some early adjustments on them... It's gonna take some time to get all the bugs and damage worked out...but the "start" looks pretty good...
    He's a link to some pictures...
