They said that antifreeze got into the engine, will that hurt anything?

What would be better getting a new engine or rebuilding this one?
What will I need to do to fix it or if i was to get a used engine for it, could I put a v8 into it how hard would that be and what would I need to change over to work with a V8???

Plan on spending $4000+ for a v8 engine and electronics, and then you'v egot to replace the rear end, upgrade the brakes, shocks, struts, etc.

You can put a 200 hp v6 in there for around 800. and spend the remaining 3200 on a supercharger.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
