hey people, i'm still new at this so i have a few questions to ask... please help!

some guy is selling a dx block with a vtec head and a dx tranny for $200. is it worth $200?! i was planning on doing a vtec swap this spring cuz my tranny's slipping and my motor's slowly breaking down. i do have a 4 door eg civic... if it matters. let me know what you think cuz i plan on picking this thing up tomorrow night. he says i'll need a intake manifold, vtec ecu and the dizzy. (does my intake manifold and dizzy work or would i have to find a vtec one?!)

block has 100,000 miles
head has 170,000 miles
tranny has 140,000 (plan to sell and get an ex tranny)

thank you.

Looks like the block and transmission are the same as you already have, so you'd really only be using the head...

...$200 might seem a lot for a head with 170K miles, then again, you could probably sell the block for $50 or your complete engine for $100 and the trans for another $100, in which case it is worth it.
