Alluminum block and 6 bolt main.About 90 pounds off the motor.Plus with some tuning you can get a nice and noticable upgrade.

You can also try car-part.com

That's where I found mine, and I got the complete engine for a grand total of 909.50, complete from throttle body to oil pan, and it has 34 thousand miles on it. I should have it sitting in the car by the end of the weekend. (supposed to be back up into the 50's by sunday)

I have one from an 04 for sale. It has less than 5000 miles on it. I will let it go for what I paid for it, $1200.

I had it sold to a guy in ALabama, but his place got hit by a tornado last week and that engine is the last thing on his mind right now. I think the car got taken in the storm too, so I doubt he will need it.

Thats a good deal, you aren't going to see them this cheap anymore in a yard.
