    Today I was looking for a spring for my timing belt tensioner when I came across an older fellow who had a wrecked gen 1 SHO. He said he would sell me the engine as it was untouched. It's in good shape but he wants $1000 for it. Is that too much?

    It is, unless it's extremely low mileage. You can buy whole running cars for $1000 or less.

    MTX timing belt tensioner spring? I should have one (As do many others) if you need it.

    500 sounds like a deal to me

    Generally speaking, $200-500 would be what I would pay for an engine. Depends on mileage and condition.

    Give him $500 for the whole wrecked car, and get an MTX along with the engine.
