Still looking for a replacement engine for my 2002 The car is in Lititz PA. Had an oil failure. Possibly an older block ( the stronger one) would be fine. Thanks John Bersch in Baltimore 4102181249 please text thanks

How quickly do you need the block? I will likely be scrapping a '95 NG900 with the stouter T5 block in it in the next couple months. Engine has right around 100k on it and didn't give me any problems. It's currently in eastern WV.

The T5 swap is the way to go, while you wait drop yours and seperate the head and clean it. use your T7 head and electrics use a T5 head gasket and away you go, basically bullet proof.

Sorry, forgot to reply earlier. Problem is it's still in the car and on a friend's property. Would have to get his approval, then we'd have to coordinate a day to pull it. If it all worked out I wouldn't ask more than a couple hundred bucks. Was asking what your timeframe is since I won't have a free day for another month or more. Yeah not the easiest caper to pull off but possible.
