big 16g turbo all the fun stuff... just swapped in supra injectors... just had a little filter on the pcv valve...
never did this before.. only when i put the small 16g in with the oil return on the top. oops
is it worth to rebuild this motor or get a used one... or maybe swap in a different motor...

check the compression and do a leakdown test first. then you can pinpoint the problem....its it running funky? anytime you work on the exhaust, just the oil on your hands and other gunk will burn off for a while.

guess so....
so should i rebuild or swap the motor...
rebuild will be about 1200 for pistons rods and headgasket...
2k for labor to rebuild and reinstall
or
buy a used 1.6l and reinstall for about 1600 total
and pray it doesnt blow up again
ps if i rebuild what else will i need apart from pistons, rods and a headgasket
thanks
