Where to source rebuilt engine

the only other rebuild option i'd consider is if i knew and trusted a very competent and local machine shop to have them do it for me.
have you thought about an engine swap? better technology, power, performance, reliability, parts....for probably less money?

Does your's not run, and you are looking for a replacement? OR
Are you looking for something that you know has been professionally rebuilt, because you dont want to have to touch it for 50+ thousand miles?
My usual stop is the wrecking yard, after a cursory compression check and inspection, I proceed to re-seal the engine and throw new timing belts on it. Less costly, more labor-intensive. It's a toss-up.
You said EA81 OR 82... are you building something? If building something from 'scratch' so to speak, I second the possibility of a newer powerplant...
EDIT: Sorry, forgot to say, +1 on CCR being the best solution, with their warranty and reputation before them... just make sure you have a core for them.
