WTB: Motor

As the title says, I'm in the market for a new motor for my car. Ideally it would be:

-Low Mileage (like < 20k)
-Never been tracked/autocrossed
-Inexpensive

I'm willing to be flexible in any of those guidelines if the right motor comes up for sale at the right time. I am not in a huge rush, so if you anticipate having a motor in the next few months, let me know the details. PM's will probably work best. Thanks!

Did you end up getting a motor? If you are interested I have a friend with a super reliable low mileage built up NA motor with all the right mods that we will likely be taking out of his elise to replace with a stocker to comply with production LCUSA rules.

pm me with your phone and I will have him call you
