Fantasma Posted May 5, 2016 Share Posted May 5, 2016 So I have this old hunk of junk suzuki sidekick, and I love the thing. But the MPG sucks and with it's near 300k miles and instead of possibly rebuilding the engine I was thinking of simply getting a modern engine put in it. I was looking and I think a new, small, economic engine would cost around 500-800 from a scrapper and install would probably cost 500 is my guess. I'm just doing it to give new life to the car, not for horsepower and I'm hoping to get an engine capable of 30 mpg. Any thoughts? (Also qoutes on just fixing the exhaust manifold have gotten up to 500, so I should do this instead and maybe if I buy the engine the scrappers will let me take the underhood noise proofing... because that car is essentially a tin can as loud as a motorcycle) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
