I can swing by on my way to work if it helps and take a look. JK
Why get one from so far away? Just wondering

My ex wife lives there, but she is just as likely to take the money and run.

Well since i cant find anyone i trust in phoenix i will just take my chances.
Let us know how you make out. I'd imagine there are not too many members in Arizona since there isn't much grass out there

thats kind of what I figured too but thought it was worth a shot. I mailed out the check today certified so at least I have another way to track the whole transaction.

It showed up yesterday just as described and all is well.
Now to get it home and fire it up "just because" then tear it apart for the build.
Plans are to port the head, balance the bottom end, install coated bearings, coat the pistons, hone and nikasil coat the cylinders, then work on the fuel system.
It will get all arp studs where possible. Like mains, rods, and head studs for sure.

There are still good folks in the world, although if I had been in your shoes I would have worried as well. Glad things turned out well for you.

And the little turbo even whistles more than i was expecting.
I did find some shipping damage that bums me out but what do ya do... The thermostat housing got broke when the motor appeared to tip over on the pallet. It is probably only a $20.00 piece and should be no big deal.
