3.4 JDM Engine Import Advice
I am planning on replacing my 2000 3.4 with a newer 3.4 motor from Japan. Current block has 245k and doesnt have much power left, lots of valve noise and is leaking head gasket ect.
I am seeing these imported motors from Japan for around 800-1100 on ebay and other sites. Im planning on swapping the motor this spring, doing the clutch and throw out bearing and having the frame professionally blasted and painted while the internals are out.
I have some questions before I go ahead and pull the trigger.
Some of these motors have the wiring harness cut, some do not, is this a thing to consider when purchasing?
Anyone have any particular experience with a JDM importer that was good?
Some people have told me to rebuild it if the crank is good however I feel that by the time I have the valves professionally done Im already around 1100. Not to mentioned that the Japanese blocks are complete with alternator, pump, ect.
Looking for general advice and tips before i get started, thanks!
