Hi guys, The engine on my R/T is GONE... and I found an engine with 54K KM's on it for 1070$... it is from a 2002 concorde, The mechanic at the garage told me I need to change wires to make it fit... will it be a direct fit or is he right ?

02 3.5 is an 02 3.5. about the only thing i can see different is if the cord wasent an HO motor, you would have to change the plemun and the wiring or vacuum line for that.

Well I have to give up on that engine because it's 700km's away. I found one for ~1100$ with 100K km's and 1year/20K km's warranty but the thing is I want one with a lot less km's than 100k....

That sounds like a pretty good deal to me...only 100,000kms....that's nothing, plus you get the warranty. Think of all the money you'll save on fuel.

Didn't really get it, but anyway, I'm not sure if it's a 3.5 or a 3.5HO. If it is a 3.5 I will put my current plenum on the thing... I want an R/T... :D

That sucks that the engine died...Wasn't a good deal after all....was it? I hate when that happens.....Try to find a 300M Special engine (2002-2004) Do you have a truck to go get it if it's somewhat far??? Maybe TFC could find you a good deal. Anyways, good luck man!!

Actually I talked to TFC earlier, and he does have a great deal for me... 2003 300M special engine with 40 000 miles on it. Now I'm trying to find a way to get the car there. Will let you guys know what's happening.

Actually, I don't... that's what's getting in the way of Ross' offer...my mechanic just found an engine for me ... 80K km's for 1800$ installed and 3 month warranty...I would rather get Ross' deal (52K km's) but it costs 800-1000$ more..

hmm 27,000 kms for $1000.00? is that Ross installing it? I guess you have to weigh out the inconvenience factor too...cars at the mechanics already, and you're home, rather than taking a few days off to travel and transport costs....tough call.

This morning I went to the mechanic and for ~2K he will do the following :

80,000 KM engine 3.5(not sure if its a HO) & installation, 3 month warranty, if the engine is not good in these 3 months, He will get me another engine and change it for free...
Timing belt
Water pump
New Oil
New Coolant
New Trans Fluid

I will also keep my ex-current 3.5HO engine.

That sounds like a great deal, especially since you keep your old engine. I'm sure there's lots of people around that would buy and rebuild it.

I'm thinking of having a little fun trying to fix it my own... Then I would put it in my 2000 base model and have 2 3.5 intrepids. The base model with the knocking engine is in my garage and the engine is half open since I never finished it because I got the R/T while working on it.
