Ive just heard from a friend where i can buy a nice neat TX3 with low kms for really cheap, but hase been overheated and according to what the mechanic told the owner, the pistons have shrunk and the engine is stuffed. How hard is it to rebuild the engine myself and if not how much would i be looking at for an exchange?
tell us a few things about the car ?
like.. what year model ? kf shape or ke shape ?1.6 or 1.8?
both models u can get a straight bolt in motor , but the 1.8l turbo motor are usually easier to source than the 1.6.problly looking at $1000 for a 1.8 (only motor)

Its a 1987 model, white with the grey skirts, i think its a 1.6 litre, manual, low kms and rust free! it looks to be in very good condition so if i could source a motor of if anyone knos where to get one in good nick for cheap would be very much appreciated!
You could get a replacement B6-T(1.6 DOHC Turbo) which you would have in it now, you could get one of those pretty easily. Plug n play.
Or if you want to go for something with more balls, get the BP-T(1.8 DOHC Turbo)
The only mod with putting in the bigger BP-T is moving the drivers side engine mount an inch or so.
The BP-T conversion is really popular for the KC-KE series :)

If you know of anyone selling one in brisbane can u get back to me on this and could u please give me your opinion on this Laser thanx
