Sound pretty expensive, you might want to shop around for a decent motor and find someone that will install the engine at a reasonable price

96,835

My opinion is no, it's not worth putting that kind of money into it. For some reason used Kia engines are over priced used, maybe cause they have problems so there aren't as may good running ones around.
