Default WTB: 99+ Long Block in CA

Looking for a 99+ long block (VVT preferred) with less than 60k. Willing to pay well for lower verifiable millage.

Located around Central Coast CA, but willing to travel from Bay Area to SD for a gem.

Will be preforming a mandatory compression test during inspection. Borescope will be used to verify those compression numbers. If that's a problem for you, don't waste either of our time.

I want to get my car back up and running again ASAP so if a great motor is available, I'll be acting on it quickly.

Give Moti over at Blackberry Fabwerks a call.

He's got a 99 with great compression numbers available.

What are the compression numbers on it? Driving 5 hours to find out the hard way isn't going to leave me feeling very warm and fuzzy.

53O..763..3O63 name is Ed, call him and you two can figure it out. He mentioned he was about to do a comp test on it this week so maybe he's already done it. I'm not selling it so this is as far as I'll "help"
