I've seen RB25DE's for £300-500 on ebay decent mileage too. I think JDM Garage usually has a few of them?

If this happened to me though, I'd be looking for an upgrade - if you're going to have the engine out and all that it's a good time to swap it for something bigger!
i'd agree, a quick search on ebay yelds 25DE lumps at for as low as £300, DET lumps for lowest £800 (someone on here had a DET at 750)

Well had the engine delivered on the Friday,had it out on the floor on sat morning and back in this morning.started first time and she's mint.only problem is the water pump is leaking so I've got to strip the cambelt off and re-seal it with black sealant!very very easy to remove the engine
