Default complete GT motor

I need a complete GT 2.4 motor - intake and exhaust manifold won't be needed.

My current motor has a rod knock. I have kept it parked at my workplace for a year now and it's time to get the rebuild under way.

My situation will involve getting the replacement motor 'built' with forged rods, cams, balanced, and then swapping in the replacement in just one day.

I have a like new turbo engine I pulled from an accidented turbo PT with only 60K Kilometers (~35K miles). It has virtually no rust and still has the factory black paint on the block. I bought it because I wanted the turbo and exhaust manifiold which is hopefully not cracked since it has such low mileage. They all crack over time, but I don't know if that is the case with this one. I just got it home a couple of weeks ago and it is too hot to mess with it right now. After I pulled the head and saw how mint the inside of the engine was, I couldn't just leave it there to get crushed, so I bought the entire thing. The cluster and PCM confirmed the kilometrage.

However, I am in Ottawa, so not really nearby. It could be shipped I guess somehow.

Really, I found a local engine from a wreckers in town, which would be included as pulled out and myself picking it up would be $1085 CAD .
Has 134000 KM !
If you can beat or match the price and include shipping on a 4x4 skid. Maybe freight wouldn't make it worth while.

Okay let me look into the cost of shipping and I will let you know. Any ideas on freight companies? I have never shipped anything big before so I am not familiar with freight shipping.

Basically you get a 4x4 or 3x3 pallet, strap it with some cheap ratchet straps, zorbies and plastic cling wrap. Then you request a tailgate pickup service to your residence. They will have a pallet jack and can load it. You will need rough dimensions and weight.

Freight options: Loomis, UPS, Fedex, Purolator

I need you to make a decision by Monday June 29 to determine the process of shipping and determine costs. Can send me a private message, I will get you an address.

Okay sounds good. I will try to get the quote tomorrow. I did find a website called uship which is a site where you post what you want shipped, and then various people get back to you with quotes. You choose whomever sounds good to you and off it goes. I will try there, but I also googled some dedicated freight companies so I will try them too. I should be able to find a pallet somewhere and ratchet straps are a good idea. Quick and easy.

Okay I will try to let you know tomorrow by private message. Thanks.
