If you're located in upstate SC, I think it's the FFS kit I heard about, saw cell phone pictures of.

Someone else was looking at it. It was crunched hard enough that the shaft is locked down. I think the person said the adapter manifold may have been cracked too. The person obviously said no, but then again, the seller was trying to get a lot more than $250 out of it.

This is all from cell phone pictures, and talking to the potential buyer, not first hand. Still, I'd look at it pretty hard at if first if I were you.

You could still sell it for $500 in parts even if it was garbage. Worth seeing some pictures though. You can get an new manifold for your year car too. Blower is the same.

You can't swap a 99/00 intake mani onto a 94-7 engine without swapping the head though I thought?

Correct, but the BP4W head is a superior piece, and a great upgrade.

Yeah that would be great. But the machine shop has already started polishing and machining everything. Oh well, perhaps in the future.

For some reason, I was just now reminded of when Penn & Teller voted on the sex of a rabbit.
