Thanks. Glad he had the other wheels. Did you fly out or have it shipped?

So, Danny (who is on here) was gracious enough to check it out for me. From there I had it shipped.

I would only do a 4.8is if it had the Valve Guide seals done already. Traded in my wife's 4.8is because it had the VGC, Alt bracket, and PS leaks.

Local guy that runs a route through CA,AZ and CO. Cost was $550. That part was kind of a pain, trying to find a reputable carrier and work out cost. I had some quotes come back well over 1k which blew me away.

I saw this. They say 3l but it's a iS body, exhaust and gauges. Has what appears to be a factory tow package. YMMV

Any leads on clean 4.4's as 4.6is' appear to be rare?

There is a Dinan 4.6is in the sale section of the forum. Did you check that one out? There are also a number of IS on auto Trader. Do a search and then begin inquiring.
