I hear you. Just want to make sure you don't get screwed over. I've had people buy motors from junkyards without knowing the mileage and have them put them in the car only to find out that its broken in some way. Sometimes the place of purchase is less than willing to take it back, and you would have already wasted the time to put that engine in the car. I would definitely try to get some kind of warranty or guarantee that it runs.

Morad is a pretty good place to deal with and the shipping is usually reasonable. They have L67s for sale right now. Just message them on ebay for the freight estimate.

Morad is good, but kinda expensive.

A non supercharged series 1 (L27) will take abuse for 200k+ miles. I would know, I have 214k miles on mine, and just recently replaced my cylinder heads because I burned a valve while hitting 4800rpm for 5 minutes straight up a colorado mountain with a heavy load in my car. Oops...
Mis has 225k + mils on my '97 SE.good engine. So far I've only changed 2 sensors. The Maf and forget the other (Duh!)
