Swap time? Thinking of going to the 4.6is engine? Found 1 I can't buy.

If anyone is looking for a good 4.6is engine at an outstanding price, let me know.
Under 100k miles with a rebuilt tranny but had an internal fire.

I'm not the owner but I know him. Interior fire that didn't touch the under 100k engine or recently rebuilt tranny.
Not insured for fire so he just wants it gone for next to nothing.

Were one of his wheels actually bent? I nearly swooped those until he told me that.

Not sure but he had 2 sets. For that price, it could have no wheels and if I had the $ I'd still buy it.

I didn't want the half melted x. He was selling the style 177s separate which is what I was trying to purchase until he told me one was bent and then "recounted".

Well, that sucks. Buy the 3 good ones and find a 4th later?

I just want the engine but the timing is horrible for me. The price is so good...

Amazing price. I think I've found it a home.

Well, he re-listed it. Another guy and I were trying to make a deal happen this last weekend but I think the seller was off his meds for most of the encounter.

We got him to accept $2k but then his wife flipped out which got him to flip out... Good luck.

Wow. He sure misrepresented those wheels to me. He said all they needed was a good wash and were untouched by the fire. I'd be HIGHLY suspect of anything he tries to sell.
