- Mar 12, 2013You just have to be persistent and patient. I found two Mazda Miata
blocks already stripped for $50. A bit later, I found a complete Volvo
engine and transmission with all accessories, including the shifter for
$60. Stick to the auto parts section, check it regularly. If you check
it once a day, after the first search, you will only have to go through
the things posted that day. Also, check the towns within driving distance.
Another possibility are the many forums devoted to a specific model.
Take the Miata for instance. It is a very popular hot rod, racer,
drifter, etc. I will wager you could get damaged blocks for the cost of
pickup. If you do that, consider the cost of the round trip to get the
block before you commit; the closer the better.
