First and foremost, it pains me beyond words to do this, so please keep any and all negative comments or posts telling me to not do this elsewhere.
Now then, here goes:
Like the title says, I'm selling my recently built 2001 Engine. Here are the details:
-2001 VVT complete engine out of a stock and unmolested SE
-Total miles on engine since built: maybe 10 miles, if that.
-Engine taken apart, inspected, cleaned, and re-assembled by me, with some work done by a local machine shop (like machining the head, etc)
Parts and work done/replaced/etc:
-Oil pan welded for turbo oil return line
-OEM main and rod bearings
-Mtuned forged rods with ARP bolts
-OEM 10:1 pistons cleaned and inspected (perfect condition)
-cylinder walls honed
-Chrom moly "premium" rings
-OEM Timing belt, water pump, bearings/bushings/etc.
-All new OEM gaskets/seals/etc
-ARP head studs
-head cleaned and milled flat
-valve stem seals replaced
-valves lapped/re-seated and valve lash set to OEM specs
-valve cover and water neck cleaned and "brushed" then cleared with VHT satin clear coating
Everything torqued to spec using FSM. Hi-temp oil resistant black rtv used where appropriate. Compression test done just recently, my uber low reading HF gauge shows 135-140 accross the board, and was showing exactly the same thing on my perfect condition 2001 original long block, so compression is good.
I think that's most of it, probably forgetting a thing or two. My build thread has a longgg documentation of the whole process and should supplement all info: http://www.miataturbo.net/build-thre...g-67328/page4/
I'm asking $2500 for it. Would prefer local pickup, but shipping can be arranged. I'm also open to splitting the block/head, but I must have cash in hand for both before I yank them apart.
Here's some pics (I can take more when I pull the engine)

Completely dry and ice cold, with a low reading tester. I can do an identical test on a flawless/running engine too if you really want to see the comparison (its the same).
and some when I removed it from the donor car:
