What State are you from `King ? (What should we call you ?)
Did you rebuild the engine or replace it when it blew ?
How's it running now ?

Thanks for getting the picture up mike,im from Monroe,Louisiana. im still gathering up money for the swap,when I moved back from Texas (worked in the plants for awile there) me and my gf started staying with her parents and this was my gf's first car,her dad was going to scrap it but I couldn't let him do it so im giving him $500 for the car,since im on unemployment I cant afford the swap but once I get the title in my name il take out a loan to get it back on the road

Thanks `Word for your reply. Wish you good luck on finding a job & getting your Monte back on the roads again. Is the engine blown, or can it be rebuilt ? How many miles are on your 3.4L Engine ?

Yea I don't think its salvageable, I pulled the dip stick out and it looks like someone poured milk in black coffee,so im guessing the heads are bad,then my gf said she had a mechanic look at it and he told her it has bad rodbearings,ive heard it knock pretty loud,i got quoted $2500 to pull the old engine out and put a used one in so I started exploring options then I actually found a post on her about an LA1-LX9 swap and id really like to go with that from MMS,more dureable,more HP,and more mod supports plus just better built.id really like to start a thread on that about more info on what parts need to be swapped,what tune,etc. Do you think the swap is a good idea? id be paying almost the same amount for an old used 3.4 and labor
