Depends on how much can you get an XR6 motor for? They are only 7kw more powerful than a standard i6 and you would be looking at paying between $400-$800 for one with good K's and a warranty.

To do a basic head gasket changeover yourself you are looking at between $200-$300 including gaskets and basic headwork, depending on the condition of your head. Add to that the extra $$$$'s for whatever head work you want done, i.e. porting and polishing, plus a cam which is going to set you back another $200-$300.

Well if you can get a genuine XR6 motor with only 150 000km for $400 then go for it! No point spending the same amount to fix up a motor with twice the km's. Engine changeover is easy...

i was thinking get all the stuff you need for the conversion put it all together get all wiring diagrams to start it on the bench and test it before you put it in and do what else you need to do before the day you put that engine it shouldnt take as long on the day but no guarauntees
