Ummm. If that wasn't in SC, I'd be all over it. I wonder how much it would be to ship it.

OP, are you local to the seller?

Edit: What the hell. Just texted Matt.

Looks like the engine is in Mississippi.

Greyhound shipping may be a possibility?

Head off means you cant test compression. I would be weary about the motor.

Will need to do pick up only. Too much hassle to ship that.

Thanks for posting for me. Yes all the receipts are included. Less than 500 miles on motor. Bought a v8 rx7 so selling my Miata and pulled the motor to sell separate to get more money. Just moved to Tampa, but my husband and motor/car are still in MS. Needing to sell it before he moves down here with me.

I'm from Tampa, and shoot, right now I'm in Tampa. That engine would be easier to sell here, than in Mississippi.

Was the DNJ oil pump considered an oem equivalent?

I'd been texting matt, but I guess it's a no go due to the shipping issue and not having numbers. He also didn't specify how the motor was broken in except that it was nice and easy for the 500 miles of use it has seen.
And from my understanding, it wasn't built by a shop etc, just a local person that does this. Not that there's anything wrong with that, just that it's hard to confirm work etc that way. If I was local and could check things out in a running car, I'd be all over this.
