good deal??????

i was wondering if this was a good deal. i found it on CL. this guy has all the motor parts except the block, turbo, and water pump. the parts included are injectors, heads, rods, pistons, cam, crank, hpop, all the valve train parts, valve covers, and wiring harness. the motor is a late 99 and is said to have only 88000 miles. the reason there is no block is that the truck was in a wreck and the oil pan and block go messed up. he wants $200 dollars
seems like a good deal what do you think???????:du nno:

If the block got messed up in the wreck, I'd go over the heads, rods, pistons, cam, & crank over with a fine tooth comb. Make sure nothings cracked or bent. Otherwise, for all that stuff, 2-bills sounds like a deal! All you'd need to do is freshen up with some new rings, bearings, etc. Are they forged rods or powdered metal?

every thing looks great as far as any damage, and yes, the rods are forged.

I say go for it! Like I said, just get your hands on new bearing caps, mains, etc, & you'll be in like Flynn.
