Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.


Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.


If listing a car, post:
-The year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model
-As many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. For tires, note any gashes, bubbles, cupping or curb rash
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every wheel


If listing parts, post:
-What brand and what models it can be used on
-An accurate description
-How long it/they have been used for
-Any imperfections
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


For miscellaneous items, post:

For WTB threads
-Be as detailed as possible.
-List exactly what you want, what variations you will accept, colors or materials, etc.
-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.


In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

        No body parts accepted :)

        Comp and Leak as well as pre-removal dyno data is available as posted on the full add and here as well:

        Engine details: Motor was pulled with 172,XXX miles in January 2015. Condition of timing components unknown and no documentation/paperwork of any update/replacement of timing components available. Results of a compression/leakdown test performed prior to removal (2/20/2013) were as follows, (motor internals have not been inspected and head has not been separated from block):
        Cyl 1/Cyl 2/Cyl 3/Cyl 4/Cyl 5/Cyl 6
        Compression: 140/155/155/165/155/170
        Leakdown: 58%/35%/30%/40%/27%/28%

        A “pre-dyno” was performed in September 2014 at Boost Creep (Longmont, CO) on a Dyno Dynamics (“heartbreaker”) dynometer to provide a “baseline” for comparison following engine transplant to determine the amount of performance I gained post engine refresh. Results of the dyno (from the motor for sale) were: 204 peak HP/188 peak ftlb at the wheels, altitude corrected.

            OP, was the leakdown performed with the engine warm or cold?

              Very cool motor for a swap. Nothing sounds like a s38. GLWS

                Comp and leak were done on a warm engine. Based on sound, it was felt the leak was in the head/valves of cyl 1 (not bottom end). I believe this engine would need a full timing component (rails, etc.) rebuild as well as a head/valve job. BUT as stated, the motor has not been disassembled to inspect/confirm. The bottom ends of these motors are pretty stout and I would be surprised if it needed a rebuild - but unk. The motor I had refreshed (not the one for sale) had 180,xxx miles and you could still see the cross hatch on the cylinder bores. I did not do anything to the bottom end of that motor.
                Hope this helps...

                  hopefully its just something minor. b35 heads have a bit of a reputation for cracks in the valve seat area causing burned valves.

                  the good thing is that its almost always fixable by someone handy with a tig welder.
