I know you may be able to find deals for parts, but in my experience you get what you pay for. I will only charge what it cost me to get. Not making $$ on parts. I am not interested in picking up or dropping off cars. I am not interested in scams. I am an honest guy who likes to work on cars in his free time. I take my time and do a good job. If your car is damaged, I will take many pics before I touch it. I am not responsible for your damage / broke parts. Anything that is wrong with your car will add to the above estimate. Buying a used motor is the responsibility of the car owner. I will not warrant a motor I bought to save you $$. If you want a warranty buy a new crate motor. Costs of these are not shown. I can work with any supplier in the US. All parts cost would need to be paid before any order is placed. 50% of labor paid before work begins. 100% funds due before pick up.
