so basically my o4 6spd tsx is MIA due to code p0341, now i have been looking for another motor but can't find any k24a2 motors in my area, but there are a lot of accord/element/cr-v motors for sale locally. so my question... is it worth the work to swap one of those motors in car just to get it running, while i rebuild the original motor? just swap long blocks and use my im,headers,wire harness? time is more of a factor than money right now. thank you

p.s. or if someone in the mini soda area can help me find a running k24a2 motor for sale, i'd deeply appreciate it ;)

I would put a new chain and tensioner on there before I go to the next step of getting a new motor. Can you do this on your own? This is cheaper than swapping in a new motor.
