Who needed a new engine?

Can't find the thread to post this ebay auction, but wanted to tell whomever had just blown their engine that I found a BRAND NEW 3.2L on Ebay, no reserve price!


'97 Boxster (Black Hole for 42,000 Dead Presidents and counting) - 122k
New motor, transmission, suspension, and on and on and on it goes...

Not to be a nit picker but the engine is described as a "factory rebuild." I am not sure that this is accurate.

My Porsche folks describe the legitimate engines they sell as "factory remanufactured." These are essentially new engines that may have some used exterior parts on them so they can't be labelled as "new."

Moreover, as I quickly glanced at the ad, I did not see a warranty listed. As I understand it, if a non-Porsche shop does the install, the factory 12 mo warranty on this engine is void.

I think the above is all correct and if so, I would be careful in buying this engine. The seller has no feedback and just joined EBAY;
