Default New Engine Needed

I have a friend that kinda forgot that a car needs water (it was leaking he did not notice).

Anyways, it died. dealer wants $8K to fix.

don't know the details of what exactly is wrong, but was hoping somebody here might know places to find new Audi motors. he's in DFW.

he has a 2001 A6 with a 2.7..... that's all i know.... He needs help ASAP...

thanks.

Suggest you check the regional forums here and on www.audiworld.com and search for a good independent mechanic who specializes in Audis. If you don't find any after searching, post a query there. Then, start makin' calls.

G'luck.

I did see an A6 2.7T engine on eBay about 2 days ago.

Not sure how much or where, but a lot less than $8k!

8k sounds kinda low for a new 2.7. Does that include labor? Just installation will cost around 2500.
