My friend made a lot of money swapping out engines in Hondas and Toyotas. Supposedly Japan ships over containers full of engines with about 60K miles on them. In Japan taxes and inspections get ridiculous at about 60K miles so they buy new cars and scrap the old ones. The engines are sent here for resale.

He would get a 60K engine dropped off at his house for $400. He would pull the old engine replace the timing belt, water pump, and rear seal. Then he would put manifolds from old on new and reinstall. Cars start up and purr like a kitten.
