Spun bearings in my SAABARU!

Well, at 7:15pm, at 149500 miles, my beloved Saabaru, a.k.a Blacksheep02 blew the motor. sad I don't know what to do with it at the moment. DO I part out the car and recoup as much as I can from it or do i get a new engine put in? I can't do it myslef. I don't have the time for it. sad
I don't know what to do.

Milford Pa.?

My local (FL) Subaru Shop swapped my engine with a JDM EJ205 and installed a new clutch and flywheel for $3500.

Re: Spun bearings in my SAABARU!

GOOD NEWS/BAD NEWS. Brought it to shop. locked the passenger side head due to coolant from bad head gasket, according to mechanic. bent the valves. The good news is, the block is still good. bad news is that it was only bent valves. I wanted it to be blown so I could do a JDM ej207 swap. hehe She's back on teh road with rebuilt heads.
