In Hawaii, need new engine

So, it looks like I pushed my engine to the max and blew a rod. Issue is, I'm in Hawaii and need a new engine. Any ideas?? Thank you in advance!! Ps, if going with any engine what would you put in a 2015 gti?

Being in Hawaii, probably cheapest to just buy a used one off ebay and replace in kind at a local independent shop. If you were in the states, better off just buying the full APR long block. Dealer is going to ask for $10k for a new engine for sure.

Holy smokes, another 2015 pulled a subie clearly a pattern coming from the 2015s. Sorry to hear bro.

Not sure if ebay sellers ship to the island but there were some good basically new 2017 engines for sale for like $3-3.5K shipped last time I checked. I would just go with something like that and have a reputable indie shop throw it in for a non rape price.

Maybe out under $5-6K when all is set and done? But you'll have a 2017 motor which have yet to fail on the forum (I think?)

If it broke a rod, it was tuned too hot.

An IS38 doesn't have the balls to break rods unless you detonate the motor.

So, got a block ordered should be here in 2 weeks. Used block from 2016. Yes, I was tuned to hot. But hey, if you want to play you got to pay. Stage 3 revo, stacked jb4. Will see how this one stacks up.

IIRC Hawaii doesn't have the greatest Gas, and they don't sell E85. Probably a huge factor I would say.

Great place to visit. Horribly racist place to live if you weren't born there. And even if you are, if your skin is too pale, you're still less than human. They're almost as bad as the Japanese.

Have you lived there or just vacationed there? I did not experience anything like that when I was living there.

I understand it's that way if you go outside the tourist areas. I spent 10 days there but didn't go out to the "burbs".

Oversimplified but for the most part the truth

Sorry to hear about your motor man. I was trying to source a motor locally too, and same as you, had to look to the continent. Let me know if you need any help.

Wow, you must have had a bad experience here. By the way what do you mean “They're almost as bad as the Japanese.”?
