new motor for my 9k

new motor for my 9k

Postby saabsam » Wed Jul 09, 2008 5:13 pm

well found a 1995 2.3L n/a 9k on criagslist the other day right outside of Ft. Lauderdale, so last night after work me and my friend made the trip to go look at it after a 5hr drive through rain and traffic we finally made it to the car. The car has 177,000miles but no leaks and brand new tires, the interior is amazing and the body besides some rust on the rear hatch and right rear quarter panel is very good, the only problem with the motor is some lifter noise at idle but at normal driving speeds its unnoticeable. Because of the noise we talked the lady down to $900 and we where off... hours later around 4:30am we arrive home with my new 9k-

Im so happy Ive been looking for a new motor for about 3months now and couldnt seam to find one for under a grand so a whole working car for $900 im amazed :D I plan to take apart the motor and put the head from my 9k aero with the cams/valve springs in, then buy rods/pistons, and eventually put it all back together in my aero and part the rest of the new 9k out to make some money back.

Wow. That's one helluva donor car! Plenty of people would be happy to have that thing as their daily driver. Well, done, Sam.

Is the interior as nice as it looks in the photos?

What a score Sam! I had reached out to a salvage yard in Georgia for you but they couldn't find you one in time. BTW is there any way to search multiple cities in Craigslist or do you have to go into each individual location and enter your search parameters? Can't wait to see the scarab green 9K in person.

Well done, Sam! What a deal.

Seems a shame to part out a nice car like that. On the other hand, I might be interested in them there wheels if they'll fit.

Hmmmm.... that 9000 might have 4-bolt rims... you probably have 5-bolt rims, Scott.

Please correct if I am in error.

Yeah, I have 5. I'm unsure what the 9000 has.

I might be interested in the front seats. Let me know if they are available and I will try and find out what it takes to put them in a C900.
