Exchange Motor

What's the going price for a reconditioned motor for a 3.9L EA ?
And could someone please tell me the difference between a 'long' motor and a 'short' motor

Thanks :)

Re: Exchange Motor

im pretty sure that short motors include the head - they are complete sump to rocker cover.

long motors have everything - water pump, intake and exhaust manifolds etc.

Re: Exchange Motor

LOL i'd never heard the term 'short motor' before i was about to make a post asking what JMM's long motor was... i thought he had an I6 with and increased stroke hence 'long' motor

Re: Exchange Motor

I think rollin is closer to the mark, best thing is ask what exactley it does and does not include for the money, then decide what you will bother to get yourself and fit after the fact, its mostly a matter of how much work you want to do yourself, the less on the motor the more you have to pull off it before swapping, and then put back on.

I prefer a short motor option, then bolt my own manifolds, water pump etc on, but up to you.

Re: Exchange Motor

I think (from memory) a EA 3.9 MPFI exchange short motor is about $2000, just an exchange head is about $600.

Better off just getting an AU or EL motor from the wreckers IMO.

Re: Exchange Motor

got one here in brissy, just rebuild the head on it, where abouts are you located? its just the block & head & rocker cover,

Had it going for about 1500kms until the car was written off from the back ....

If your in brissy or nth/sth goldie or sunny coast, we can work something out ...

Re: Exchange Motor

Soxx is on the money. a short motor has no head, timing chain timing guides, timing cover.
A long motor does not come with manifolds, water pump etc... (that would be a long motor with anccilaries)
