If you want to use it on your own car, it'* at your risk. I doubt you'd find a buyer here, either.

Bottom line is that I've never seen a silver Gen3 that wasn't a FLOZ. And he didn't paint the bolts after the first year. He painted components seperately.

Wouldn't put it past him to just paint it and sell it. The one I got from him way back when was completely painted on the outside, bolts, PCV cover... cheap paint too. It came off on my hands and turned greenish after use. Maybe he got wise later on.

Floz or not, it'* used and therefore you have no way of knowing how old the bearings are. If it'* got rotor coating and there are no hitches in the giddyups when you spin it by hand, IMO it is a good candidate for new bearings and a good cleaning (including something to strip that silver paint).

Quality of the paint won't matter. Driverjohn'* was quality paint. And the SC failed within a month.

Not saying paint quality did. Just saying how **** poor his work was at the time.

well...let me ask you this...say i do rebuild this one and i put it on and it fails....would it harm the motor or could i just take the junk off and put a good one..bought from a respectable seller and be good to go again? cuz all it looks like is those big rotors in side..nothing could fall in the engine right?

Highly unlikely for anything to come flying apart. More likely a nose drive bearing fails, the pulley freezes, the belt shreds, and your engine temps skyrocket because the water pump stopped rotating. You won't injest anything.
