Has anyone looked into this eg with a k20?

It seems too good to be true but just wondering if anyone has checked it in person

I wouldn't recommend buying it.

Who installed the engine? Is it mounted firmly? The engine came from where? Does it have proper maintenance record and always fed with 91+ octane?

You can always re-install the engine. Like the seller said, the engine is worth more than the asking price.

Also when you buy an engine, you virtually never get the service record. I don't know what world you're living in?

It's going to be a lot of work. It's not worth it unless you don't mind spending the time to build it up. It's going to be hella quick once it's done properly. sub 12 seconds anyone?

Hmm so the motor is not even installed correctly eh....yeah i thought it was too good to be true...I guess that's why it is cheap...
How is the condition of the actual car itself? Is it a rebuilt car, any rust or accidents> Interior is stripped?
I couldn't actually get a hold of the owner to check it out...
So the condition it's in? you think it even worth 3500?
