For a used engine from salvage? Good price if not too many miles

Which engine? 2.7L, 3.2L, 3.5L?
They can be swapped but if you put another type of engine you have to change other electric and computer parts too!
2800$ must be a used engine! Why do you need to change you engine at 91000 miles?
2800$ for an engine that has good but not perfect condition and has 50-60K miles seems okay. If you get the 2.7L V6 go with the magnum edition. That is somewhat better.

My engine is a 3.2. My oil light kept coming on indicating it was low on oil. I checked it over 3 times and the dip stick came back clean and dry. I put in 2 qts of oil and within 5-8 minutes, tons of smoke was coming from exhaust and engine knocking. Mechanic said it had TOO MUCH OIL in it and the gaskets were blown and I needed a new engine. Another one said it was the lifters and still need a new engine. And another mechanic said not to waste my time because the 3.2 engines are no better than the troublesome 2.7 engine. I only owe $2300 on the car, I am looking at repairs of $2800 and not sure if it is really worth repairing if I am going to continue to have this problem.
