the motor has a spun bearing, theres no more narrowing down. Basically, the person who sold you the k20z3 bottom block didn't know that it had a spun rod bearing. I took it out and saw the problem child. I do have an extra k20a3 motor sitting in my garage.. hah.

I'll check out some junk yards for you tomorrow to see how much for a complete k20a2 motor would cost. We can take the block and have them machine the crank and you can resell the block. The oil pump wasn't the issue, it seems like it as we were believing in people selling legitimate parts.

Take this as a lesson, don't buy blocks unless you for sure know its legit. When you told me, "this guy was originally going to swap it but didn't." raises a red flag saying, where did he get the motor and why was it only the bottom block and wheres the head, oil pump, pan and etc.

Have you gotten k-pro yet? I advise you to have someone check out your motor next time you buy a block. Or else you'll dump more money into it. Thank god I had KSMatic take care of all my issues. Interesting build since your z3 block will turn into a K20a2 once the oil pump is in.
