FS - 86' 190e 2.3 16v Engine and trans

Hey everyone,

I have decided to do a little something different with my 16v. I have a slightly bigger 16v engine that I am going to swap in.

Anyways, basically I am selling the complete engine and trans dropout including the radiator and engine wiring harness. All of these items have ~95K miles (I will drive the car some next week so the number will change). I am currently located just west of Chicago, IL. I will ship these items at the buyers expense.

Engine runs great once it warms it. There is a hesitation around 2K rpm when it is cold. Other than that the motor runs great. I did a compression test after the motor was pulled from the car so the motor was cold when the test was preformed. Cylinders 1, 3 and 4 all showed 190psi. Cylinder 2 however showed 140 psi. I have not preformed a valve job on the motor since I have owned the car. The previous owner did preform one either. Together we put 8k miles on the motor. I don't have any of the old service records so I am not sure when the engine last had a valve job.

I would like to sell this as a complete unit, however if the price is right I will split it up. Here is my idea.

Complete engine and trans combo - $2200 OBO
comes with:
- Complete engine (full front accessory drive and full intake)
- Full exhaust (2.5" SS from the header back. NO CAT)
- Radiator (with hoses)
-Complete Trans (trans, bellhousing, clutch, flywheel, pressure plate)
-Complete shifter assembly

Complete Engine - $1500 OBO
comes with:
-Complete engine (full front accessory drive and complete intake)
- Full exhaust (2.5" SS from the header back. NO CAT)
- Radiator (with hoses)

Complete Trans - $1000 OBO
-Complete Trans (trans, bellhousing, clutch, flywheel, pressure plate)
-Complete shifter assembly

These lists may change slightly once I get everything out of the car and figure what I do and don't need. I AM NOT interested in parting out the motor or trans so please don't ask.

Here are the pictures.

I do have the spark plug cover, however I broke the clips that hold it on. All you need to do is buy new clips and it will snap back on.

You can also call/text me at 615-579-5873 with questions

Please let me know if you have any questions.
