Default NB 1/2 engine, 99-00 head/ 01 block, $750 obo or trade for strong NA 1.8

Engine is located in Greenville, SC

I am putting my NB1/2 engine up for sale! It isn't legal to have in my car for my solo class and my original engine just turned over 200k miles. I'm open to trading for a low mileage (~100k) strong NA 1.8. Otherwise I want the cash to peice together one of my other bare blocks.

Comes with.....

99-00 head
- ~45 miles since head has been worked on, 42k original miles
-New valve stem seals
-New valve seats
-Polished bowls
-Slight port job
-3-angle valve job
-Machine-shop shaved it, forgot the numbers.... need to dig up the receipt.
-NGK iridium spark-plugs
-Magnecore spark-plug wires

01 short-block
-121k miles out of a 01 SE, synthetic oil always used
-ARP head-studs
-Felpro HG(45 miles)
-<10% leak-down test(HF special )
-Compression checked out great, need to dig up the numbers. They are within 3psi of each other and it was a healthy 190+ psi.
-new gates timing belt
-new front main and rear main seals.


What it does NOT come with....
-The yellow ACT clutch & flywheel
-injectors
-coilpack
-CAS
-throttle body
-header
-EGR tube







$750 or best offer, willing to ship at buyer's expense. Also willing to trade for a strong, ~100k mile NA 1.8 engine. I've got near $350 in recent machining work with the head alone, added with value of the head and strong 01 block, I think this is a great deal for someone.

Engine is located in Greenville, SC

Thanks

If you find a local buyer I will give up my position as the first potential buyer to make your life easier.

Getting shipping quotes from $200-$350 on a pallet, engine completely assembled. Wondering if seperating the head and block might lower the costs, lol.

I would much rather prefer a local sell, though. I want this thing gone by the end of September!

I've got some local interest in it, nothing confirmed though. Ideally, I would trade this engine for a low mileage NA 1.8 with some cash on top from the "buyer", depending on mileage. Money talks, as always. I think I would have a hard time finding a NA 1.8 locally if I were to get straight cash though, so I'm pretty firm on my asking price.

I'd buy this if you were local. After shipping 1,000+ for a 120k motor kills it though.

GLWS, looks nice.

Yeah, shipping is just about out of the question. I've heard some people use a GreyHound bus, but it would be up to the buyer if they were ok with that.

Bump!

It was pending but haven't heard anything recently. Like to get it sold before the end of the month.
