This engine is not in a car, adn all I can tell you is what he told me about it. Although I have seen it and it looks like your run of the mill 280zxt engine, kinda dirty, but the turbo looks pretty clean from the rest of the engine, so I don't know if it is new or not.( I don't want to tell you that it is becuase I don't know). Anyway, he was going to put it in the 280zx body that I gave him but decided that it would be too much trouble, so I would imagine that it runs. Come on down and look at it, and bring some extra cash to buy my xtra hood. Chat at ya later dude.
