Please help me decide
I just spent a year getting my vr with a manual supercharged v6 to run and now i spun a bearing after a week of it going and its going to be a shitload to get fixed so my options are
Sell it and get a v8 which will probably be an auto and that might mean taking a loan out
Keep the blown v6 an fix the problem and struggle to pay for the repairs
Buy another heap of **** car for a runabout and then decide what to do with my commy (most likely sell it and be commodoreless)

or just sell the motor to me for $1500 and go from there.
Seriously I would catch the bus, save up some money and make it better in the process of fixing it.

Depends what you want to do. You'd save some money if you can fix it yourself, just buy a cheap car to run around in while you fix it up. Or look for a V8 motor+matching trans or find a wreck, pull the running the gear from that and part out the rest of the car to make some money back.
