Default S4 TII block

I'm looking to trade my current block plus some cash on top for a known good s4 block. This is a long story that ill make sweet and simple

Had a 88 n/a I built back in 2003 lost my home in a fire in 2011 and all my parts i had for the car including 3 spare motors. That car ended up dying in 2012 due to blown seals and as much as it pains me to say it neglect on my part (had no garage, barely any money, all my parts were lost and it was just a shame) but I hunted down a 10th a.e. that had a little bit of modification.

Turbo blew out summer of 2013 so i decided hell with it its time to do a full rebuild. I did the rebuild on my block speced everything out everything was in check and in tolerance. Got the motor back in the car and have had nothing but issues with it. Wouldn't fire up at first which was my fault with the vacuum lines got it all sorted out and now the block has pulley wobble. I only fired it two times until someone realized hey somethings wrong here and since then its been sitting. It also would not hold idle and compression checked out at roughly 90 psi/chamber with the schraeder valve removed from a standard tester. I've never encountered this on a rotary and I've read it could be anything from a pinched thrust bearing (does not seem to have any play front to back or side to side on the eshaft so that may be a possibility) or crank walk and shot rotor bearings/everything else.

In other words I've given up on this block. I'm running broke trying to get this car running and trying to recover my life after the house fire and having my first daughter right before that all happened.

I've been trying to find someone local (central nj) with a tii block thats not blown to hell something I can use for the time being to get the car running and just have it to get me to and from work for now. I'm kind of strapped as far as cash goes so I'm hoping to find someone who has a spare block that runs ok and is willing to take my old block and some cash on top for a known good block.

If anyone can help me out please let me know im at my wits end with this build and i don't want to sell the car. Been driving rotary the past 11 years now. Ive been through hell and back yet the main thing that was always there was my 7.

Thank you guys and i hope to hear from yas.
