Is the 2.5 svt worth rebuilding

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I bought my svt about a month ago, just too find out that my engine is locked up. So I was wondering is better to replace the 2.5, rebuild it or swap a 3.0l in it? I just want to know which is the best option?

Honestly that's up to you. Unfortunately most of the 3.0L's are high in mileage anymore so a used engine is probably out of the question when it comes to 3.0L's. Depending on your area, you may be able to find a lower mile SVT engine (I found a 63K used 2.5L SVT (VIN G) engine in MN for $850). So the choice is yours to make, you can also go re-manufactured - But beware the cost will be substantial for the engine but everything will be refreshed and have a warranty on it.

Upgrades? Honestly aside from a metal impeller water pump - There aren't many worthwhile upgrades for these engines.
