I've been sitting on this for a short while. I would buy this in a flat second, but I have other stuff sucking me dry and @[email protected] convinced me we are good on spares.

30k mile N54, according to ad, complete for $1,000. Whose the lucky guy here that's buying it?

Now I will say ... 30k miles ... unlikely given the front valve cover weeping, though possible. For $1k complete, if the motor is intact, screaming deal regardless. But I would want to convince myself that the reciprocating assembly is fine. Likely a wrecked car from which this got pulled.

Ive messaged the guy. At first the listing said it had rod knock. Then he relisted it and left that out so I messaged him asking about it and he said "no knock but it might have a spun bearing" lol

I would not bother. Just buy one from Ghassan Motors with upgraded internals and call it a day. If you want an upgraded motor, buy one from a reputable source with warranty.
