Good. It looks to be good by the words in the ad. Plus that ad makes sense.

You would spend double that plus more to build that engine. I don't like the intake manifold but that is just me.

Looks like he has a perfect feed-back too. Happy for you.; That should be a rompin stompin piece of fun.

Looks like you got a good deal, hope everything is up to snuff, you never know with used engines, If it was mine I'd pull the heads and oil pan and take a peak to make sure everything at least looks alright. Also I'd definetly install a new front seal and a new rear main seal. It might save some headaches later on. Lot easier to do this kinda stuff now than after you have the motor in the car.
Goodluck, Charles

seems odd that there isnt a side view of the motor?
Im having problems finding a set of headers for my brodix heads.
I would ask which headers he is using with that block.
