At 160K you might be better off with one of those used guaranteed engines you see advertised around. I bought one of those for a RX7 many years ago and it functioned very well, it was still running when it was wrecked by someone blowing a stop sign.

Cracked blocks aren't all that common. More likely head gasket or cracked cylinder head. If it were mine and I loved the car I would have the head removed and the head and block checked.

Sell it to me, lol


Buy in all seriousness, 22re's I've seen either blow headgasket and start consuming coolant/white smoke out of the tailpipe. Or the timing chain guide breaks and wears a hole in the timing cover and dumps coolant in the oil.
