Replacement Engines

Hi my wife currently has a kf laser 1.6 carby B6 engine, great car to drive in great nick but the engine has an oil consumption issue. I am looking to replace the engine but don't know where to go. I can get an engine from a wrecker for about 500 and they all say its a good one mate, but i dont want to have to do it again in a year. I was quoted 2000 for a full reco engine but not sure if im getting ripped. both prices don't include installation. I live on the central coast nsw.
Any help greatly appreciated

Re: Replacement Engines

What about replacing it with an EFi B6 from a MX-5? Would be more costly but also more power and hopefully more reliable too.

Re: Replacement Engines

you could get a BPT (1.8 Twin Cam Turbo) package for around $1800

or get a N/A BP for around $800

both will give you a decent gain over the 1.6 carby as you will be jumping from around 60kw to 92kw and a heap more torque.

Hope this helps

Rob

Re: Replacement Engines

IMHO you'd be better off sticking with the B6. The whole job would be a lot simpler and any money you saved by not getting the BPT could be spent to improve the performance of the B6 beyond that of the standard BPT.
