My evo X engine has started knocking I'm guessing the camshaft has gone?

Would it be better to have the engine rebuilt or to buy a engine from eBay
(see link below)

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/120786757675

I will try get a video posted up of the engine sound

Thanks in advance
if you think its cams, they are in the head, whereas the ebay listing is short motor, lower half, ie engine less head

Best bet is to get your car to a good trader and see what they diagnose first

Thanks stu I don't have a clue about engines ��
Are you in Sheffield?

Bit of a drive but i'd get the car to CPP in congleton. But if it is an engine knock, dont start it, trailer it

See you have bumped it, did the knock appear after the bump?

I was hammering the car round corners and in a straight line and then engine started knocking I explained it to TRL over the phone and he said it sounds like cam shaft because something had been starved of oil? Or something like that

I've not personally heard of a cam going bad on an evo X. Heard of quite a few that have spun bearings though. I would get it on a trailer and to your chosen specialist as Stu has said.
