The only issue I would have personally with that route, and this is from experience is that you NEVER know what you are going to get in a used motor, even if you pull the motor yourself from a running car, let alone something you get on the internet. I'm not saying there aren't good motors that have been shipped and installed over the years, however it is a dice roll unfortunately.
