2001 2.7L Engine-- $1,300 (will work in 2.5L as setup)

I installed this engine last year and have run three HPDEs since. Unfortunately I don't know how many miles are on it. I'm installing an Audi V8 so its going. I bought this motor for $2,000 last year, I took a look at the prices on eBay and priced the motor hundreds of dollars cheaper than the cheapest one that's been sold. Here's some information

-The engine dynoed at 220hp at the wheels which is phenomenal
-I haven't replaced the IMS bearing but did remove the case and inspected it. Its in perfect shape, no play or leaking oil
-I installed an S oil cooler
-It has a undersized crankshaft pulley
-Includes all the accessories (alternator, waterpump, coils, etc etc
-I installed a 2.5 intake manifold and mechanical throttle, as is it can drop into a 2.5L car without any modifications to engine or car. If you want to install it in your 2.7 car you can swap over your intake.
-During the HPDEs I had it hooked up to an accusump so no oiling concerns

If you could move Virginia a little closer to Oklahoma, I'd buy that today.

Does that include Michigan delivery?

I'd take it for backup but I have no way to get it.

At $1,000 with Uship or LTL freight this is probably the best deal around even after shipping across the country.
You guys have about a week to get this before lose restraint and clear space in my garage.

Man I wish I could get this. One question, don't the variocams work different in a 2.5 motor?

The Variocam is the same on all the 5 chain 986 engines - 1997 thru 2002. The biggest differences between the 2.5L and the 2.7L are the cable throttle vs e-Gas throttle, the intake tubing (resonator flapper on the 2.7L), and the DME(ECU) and it's wiring harness.

Has there been any interest in this yet?

Can you handle shipping it from your end if needed?
-securing it on a pallet and dropping off at a freight terminal?
-or arranging to meet an independent hauler pick it up through U-Ship?

Not that I'm quite ready to buy it, but resistance is weakening.
