        My questioning here, is if I emery cloth the piston faces, (which would take out most of the marks) and put new valves and head gaskets in, if this thing would be good to go for the winter, then in the spring actually worry about swapping engines?

        That is, if it's a cheaper option.

          It cost more to rebuild the heads and replace the pistons than it does to get a new motor.

          Again, when the valves get bent on those heads, you need to replace the valve guides too. That's where things get expensive.

          Ah.  Damnit.

            Do you by chance have any links to an ecotech swap? I wouldn't mind takin a look.

              Yup if the valves bent your guides are NFG. Technically the block is still good, but cost wise you might as well swap engines.

              Or if you can find a set of heads to bolt on, but new gaskets/seals/timing stuff is gonna add up.

              Good on ya for taking it apart yourself. It was as I originally feared.

                Would the heads of a different engine have to be machined to match the block?

                Looks like a new engine is in the near future..

                  Yes. And the block is aluminum, so it needs machining too. Forget I said that. Sounds like you need a motor.

                      Heads going back on so the engine mount can bolt in it's original three places, will be winter stored until spring when it gets a new engine.

                      However..  sixthsphere has finally posted pictures of the modified Vectra B coilovers they will have available.  Awh yeah.  I'm gonna get my paws on these in the spring.

                                Damn you got this thing for an awesome price, even factoring in the cost of a new engine. I'd love to have this for a winter beater/road trip beater. I personally wouldn't spend money on it trying to make it look nice, but its not my money or my car :P

                                    Ecotec swap would be great. Please go through with that portion of it.

                                      Yeah, I've got a ton of information and a parts list started.  Having the discount at Bucks auto parts helps immensely lol.

                                      As I've never done swaps and stuff, most likely gonna reach out for help in the spring.

                                        Buy MPI write off with rear end damage.  Swap everything needed.   

                                        Unless everything at bucks is free lol.

                                          I don't think that these get written off very often....


                                          Darcy, let me know if you need anything from wesman salvage. January/February I will be traveling from Brandon to wpg weekly. :)

                                            Yeah, most of the stuff from Bucks I get for relatively nothing.

                                            Sounds good Mitch!  I'll keep you posted, I gotta start a thread on Sixthsphere about a possible parts list.  I'm assuming stuff like the ECM, other various connections, but I will have to see if that transmission mates with an ecotec, or if the transmission has to go too.

                                              It doesn't. You will need the Ecotec trans and literally everything else. You might as well find a whole wrecked car of a similar year, cause you will need the engine mounts, the exhaust (unless you build custom) the shifting mechanism, clutch stuff, ECU, sensors etc etc.

                                                Hmm.

                                                I got time to weigh my options, the V6 swap is easier, just harder to find, and I gotta stay on top of the timing belt replacing.

                                                But ecotec seems a tad more reliable.  As I said, I got time, just going to do my research and move forward from there.
