supposedly the timing belts were replaced before i got it. so im going to call the dealer and try to blame it on them for not replacing them right, but i was also considering buying the engine parts individually and putting them together myself which might be more cost effective

The shop is trying to gouge you.. you can get a "new" used motor for $1000-$1500, and the install labor shouldn't cost more than $800.. more like $500. All together you should be out the door for less than $3500.
yeah im not experienced with it at all, i would get help from some friends with a good amount of experience though, the shop called a scrap yard and apparently they said 5.2k plus they would want to replace the water pump and stuff. i was looking at websites like topspeed that modify engines and sell them, it looks like that would even be cheaper then the scrap yard. i figure this is a good opportunity to get a bit more power out of the engine while im at it.
