It may be to your benefit to do some footwork and hit up any junkyards (if even available) in your area. I'm thinking with shipping figured in, 1200lb might be the going price there :-/i have contacted before, but the price is abt £1200 for the engine and shipping to nigeria, which is on a high side for me. please any other reliable supplier
Achievable yes. However, the extra cost to replace the engine, transmission, and ECU, as well as changing the engine mounts, trans mounts, and any other wireing harness to make it all fit, would likely cost much more than your origional price to have an engine imported, as well as taking a considerable amount of labor time ($$$) to put it all together and working correctly. From where I'm sitting and not knowing anything about how the economy and repair facilities in Nigeria are, this is where I would bite the bullet and either pay more than I wanted to, to fix the car I've already got, or to trade it/sell it off for parts and get something else. Sit down with your little calculator and see which will work best for you and your budget, but it's going to be $$ either way.the price of salvage engine from nigeria junkyard is abt $2500. i have been advised to change the whole engine + gear+ ecu to toyota camry 99 engine since its cheaper in nigeria. do u think this is achievable if well done.
"Should work" can be a very expensive though when "should work" turns into "I thought that would work". It's time to sit down with your mechanic or whoever is going to do the work, and find out exactly what it's going to take before you go throwing an engine that "should work" into a car that wasn't designed around it.someone suggested mazda 323 carb engine. so in this case, it should work with my kia gear, and wont need ecu and complex electrical work. wat do u think
