Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1998 chevy silverado 1500 and I need help figuring out the best deal
for a new exhaust. the current one is broke in 2 places but i want the new one
to sound mean. not only that but almost forgot to mention that the number 8
cylinder in the engine doesn't have compression either.

I was honestly just wondering if I should buy a new engine all together. it isnt cheap $1500. but i would not have to worry about anything else braking on me. A mechanic said I should buy a new engine all together even though it was tuned up recently. I was gonna go with a rebuild kit but i feel like he is right. Even with the tune up it is in bad condition.

A good rebuilt engine is more than $1,500.

They just around $1,500 look it up and the mechanic is asking for that much. And your welcome! Ill look around on the engine next week because that is when the truck is available for me. Its at my dads house. (im 16 and was just recently employed.) Ill talk to both of them and look more into the condition of the engine and will come to whether or not i should rebuild or get a new one.
