Hi have a chance of buying an IS300 with a cooked engine car had good history prior to the engine damage and is in very good condition otherwise, happy enough to take on a project but wonder is the expense worth it. way I see it I have two options rebuild the old engine or replace, either way I plan to replace the radiator, thermostat, waterpump and cambelt. Anyone on here get one of the rebuild kits from ebay piston & ring sets, not after more power just want it back to standard.

Thanks still undecided car has been advertised for some time so dont expect it will sell any time soon, surprised at the price of second hand engines but then again I suppose there is no real market for them.
