toyotacamry1 said:well with the extra money you save, you could take the block and get forged pistons and rods installed with a new ferrea valvetrain and metal headgasket and you would be ready to bolt on a turbo.
Pistons and rings 599.00
Valve train 550.00
Not bad considering that is what you would pay for a shop to install a new engine. Plus you are pretty much ready for boost.
See if the junkyard will let you take a 3sgt head for the same price if you leave the 5sfe.
