You should be ok, A lower thermostat will help with the Intake problem again, specially if it didn't recieve the new design

You may have an SLE package on your hands. Check out the spare tire cover for H4u sometime

Otherwise that'* not a bad deal, especially if the outside is clean.

Engine bearings and rods only go when you're not breaking in a fresh engine, or neglect.

What year was the upper intake replaced? It sounds like a good deal regardless, but that would be good to know.
