Blown engine 93 Nissan V6 137k miles

Is a wrecking yard 93 v6 81k engine safer bet than a rebuilt V6???..Thank you

I don’t know about a safer bet, but almost certainly cheaper. I wouldn’t bother sinking the money into rebuilding the engine in a 15 year old vehicle.

How much $$$ How long has the engine been sitting in the wrecking yard? The rebuilt will cost a lot of $$ and almost certainly lat a lot longer than the salvage yard engine . . . but maybe not. Rocketman
