it blew = ?

Parts scattered around the ground, gaping holes in the engine, it runs but poorly, it doesn't turn over, what?

i mean i love my 2.4 for the gas milage, i keep getting told to scrap the car and get a different one but i love it so much that i just want to get it running and keep it running without this problem, so we looked at the motor after it seized and found out that it wasn't even the factory motor its a junk yard motor with bad sensors, that could be why it never told me that it was low on oil....... should i keep with the 2.4 or what???? i want a one of a kind car here in Iowa there are a bunch of them here with body kits and rims and small mods but nothing with nonfactory motor in them...... i want to drop the supercharged 3800 in it but i don't know if that would be wise i would love some perspective of my fellow forum people........

i've heard its a crap load of work to get the 3800 to work/fit properly.

i'd get another 2.4 and build/boost it.

boosting the 2.4 was my other idea, i have found another motor for $500 with 94k miles on it which is 400 miles less than mine has... I mean boosting it would be fun it would be the only one where i live.

the 3800 is way overrated.

Yes it can fit, yes it can be fast, yes it's not worth the work IMO when a 2.4 or a 3400 and be built the same

no to 3.8, go with another 2.4. my 2.4 spun a bearing and bent a rod at 94,000 miles so don't feel to bad, and that was 6 days after i bought it . it was abused b4 i had it, old rental car from somewhere in nj according to the gm dealer records. i just stuck in another 2.4 with only 30k on it at the time out of a wrecked 98 cav and $800 bucks later it worked great again. 10k later and it still runs great. i love how my engine only has ~40k on it
