nOOb needs a motor!

Hey everyone. I'm new to FF, but not to Foci. I'm also new on FJ, my apologizes for "cross promoting". Anyway, i'm between a rock and a hard place with my car right now. Here's the quick breakdown of the situation:

-Crankshaft is snapped, unable to tell current state of other internal parts of the motor.
-Car is garaged @ parents house in PA
-I'm stationed in Norfolk, VA.
-Car was DD
-My job doesn't pay well, so my budget is tight.

Anyone know of a place where i can buy either a motor for "cheap" for like $300-$500, or where i can get my hands on a block? So i can build it from the inside out. Thanks.

I don't know the prices, but check out Focus Salvage. I'm sure you can find what you are looking for there. You can also check local junk yards.

Welcome to Focus Fanatics by the way!

Oh, Zetec. I checked it out. Where the heck is South Metro? lol. I'm not sure my blower will work on an 06. Big thanks though. Is Focus Salvage a website?

I have a connection to a focus salvage in MN. I'll check and get back to you. He usually has about 25 totaled cars.
