I would definatley tell the buyer about it. I'm not a complete dick. But I just don't want to deal with it. I'll stick to my turbo 4 cyl'*. lol

That'* a good price and I would but my motor is */Ced so I can't use an NA motor.

Thought about it today...I got some cash saved so I'm going to just do a full rebuild.

You can turn a NA into SC motor...take a bunch of parts, wiring harness, PCM, etc. It'* not as easy as just grabbing a SC and slapping it on the top. Search the forum. There is lots of info on doing it as well as parts lists and the time required.

Well I already have a supercharged motor. I don't need a entire motor. All I need is a crank kit with bearings and I need to get my rod checked out that the bearing spun in. If anyone has a */c short block laying around for $200 I'd take that. But I'm not going to buy a NA motor and just slap my */c on top of it. There are factors such as diff. compression ratio and whatnot that I don't want to deal with. I'm trying to keep as little out of the machine shop as possible. At the moment all I plan on sending him is a rod to check out.
