I think i saw a LKQ sticker on the valve cover.. Ive been searching for awhile and found a website called www.automotix.net and got it from there. I was planning on removing the balance shaft but wasnt sure if that would have voided my warrenty.

I went thru this with LKQ, a 2.3L, it ticked from day one, I then bought a reman engine, died in 3 weeks, under warrenty they replaced it and now I am 3K miles and 1 month into a new motor and no issues.. cost about double your $1500 and then some but I am happy now, however I was told from LKQ that the warrenty was void if i accept a 2.3L motor since my car came with a 2.0L and will not replace it again if it went out. so if you get one, avoid LKQ
where did you order your reman engine from?
