Dialema.... Mend It Or Sell It


Recommended Posts

Well, i face a dialema... been 3 months now since the engine gave up and I dont know what to do ....

Sell the scooby as it is all mods etc, just needing an engine ?

Put a rebuilt engine in it and hope it will last me another couple of years at 340 bhp ?

Problem is cash is bit tight at the moment, so cant go balls out on a 2.5 conversion and after digging about have found http://www.smrengines.com/ as engine rebuilders in london, who also sell on ebay and charge £1000 quid for a rebuilt STI engine.. and tempted as it is, is it worth fitting one of these into my 1998 scooby...

do we have any experience of them, them seem to have sold a lot of scooby lumps as per their feedback, so someone must have come across them ?

arrghh dunno what to do, suggestions ?
