i think you are jumping to conclusions there. the engine may be messed up, but are you sure of it yet? at the least take it to a trusted mechanic or something and have it professionally diagnosed. it may be fixable. for an engine swap you are looking at $3k easy.

i woke up and cranked my 01 RS one morning and the engine was running HORRIBLY. i just knew somehow my block was cracked or i had a major problem because it was running so ragged.

it took a while, but finally diagnosed i had a plug wire go bad. a plug wire.

good luck to you.
