Hey guys, I recently bought a second MX73 Cressida that's in minty shape but the 5MGE in it is burning lots of oil unfortunately, which is to be expected.

I'm wondering if anyone has or knows of anyone with a good 5MGE or possibly a non turbo JZ motor with a 5 speed they would sell? Looking more towards a 5MGE just so it's a easier job and it'll cost less.

let me know if you guy's know of anything! thanks!

maybe you should fix the oil burning issue. I had 5mge that smoked like a bastard until i did the valve stem seals. when is it smoking?

it is the valve stem seals, I was just trying to see if I could pick up a working 5MGE for a cheap price. Looks like I will be taking the head off and replacing gaskets as well as the stem seals.
