      Take it to a shop. Saying that, 'It sounds like crap,' isn't very descriptive. Have a professional look at it.

      Since it's a 2.0, you should save up a little extra and find a nice 1.8t or 12valve to go in there. Or, if you want to have some fun with the 2.0 find a local shop that specializes in head work and have them do a P&P and bigger valves on the 8valve head while they're rebuilding it.

      What engine rebuild kits are you looking at? What needs to be rebuilt and fixed with the engine?
