    Check ebay and piton heads. There is always usually a few floating about. Are you running standard boost? The reason I ask is thats not very common a thing to happen!
     
  3. very very uncommon for these to snap rods unless excessive revs are applied for long periods........ harmonic resonance is a killer

    strange!

    motors go for £150-£500, you get what you pay for IMO

    Good Luck mate! Remember to replace all the essential running gear too (timing belt/oil pump etc before it goes in) prob save you a fortune in the long run.

    at the minimum take the sump off and clean the pick up out of sludge/coke etc.
