I have an sr in my 90 hatch with blown rings.. well a buddie of mine that owns a shop said that he could get me a new motor.. just the motor for $800. shipped.. do you think this is a good deal.. or should i just buy the other one that i have laying around.. i can get it for $1500. but it has another tranny and ecu with it.

Why not rebuild yours?

If not then I would go with which ever has less miles and newer and what you can afford. You could always buy the $1500 and sell the trans and ecu.

just get the motor $800, why pay +$700 more for parts you alredy had, unless down time cost more than........

You should just work a rebuild. Good time to upgrade.

try the rebuild..

or suffer possible busted motor #2.

honestly, you think 700.00 SR shipped from japan is worth anything? sure the crank may spin, who knows, it might run for a little while-- but can you completely trust it?

700.00 would cover machine work, gasket set, new factory oversize pistons, rings and bearings. (newe headbolts and main bolts)

honestly.. dont be afraid of rebuild

then you have a good fresh SR instead of 2 possibly busted SR's
