I don't think that $600 is a correct price for an asian ap engine unless it is a worn out peice o' crap. Everything I have seen or been told from them is around $1800 shipped for a good rebuild long block.

Re: Gray Market Sammy engines.

Do a lot of research when you get a gray market motor. Many of the motors in vehicles in Asia and Europe are the same dimensionally, but use different internal components. I get calls all of the time requesting timing belts for these type engines, and unfortunately, replacements don't exist here in the U.S. And you don't want something as simple as a timing belt to leave you high and dry. I work in an automotive technical center, and this is one of the things that we confront all of the time. It sometimes is very hard to get replacements for these engines.

No kidding. I owned a Gray Market BMW 733i once, and just getting exhaust parts for it was a bear. Very little was the same when compared to the US equivalent.
