Default Vg30e engine?

Looking for a vg30e. My 95 broke its timing belt, I havenít checked to see if the valves are bent yet, but if they are I donít see a reason to drop all the money in a head job on an engine with 273,000 miles. Anyone know where I could get one that isnít an arm and a leg?

Find you a VG33 out of a frontier. Lower miles and a bump in power. There are several well documented swaps on here to guide you.

The odds are against you. You are gonna have bent valves.
