Update

Thought I'd do a quick update here...

Motor is out and on the ground. We did a (cold) leak down on it to check it's health. Would have liked to have done a hot one but there was no chance to get it running in the car. Leakdown numbers were great. 1-2 pecent on most cylinders. What was interesting was cylinders 2 and 5 were very bad (ie...no readings???) so I thought not good! We pulled the valve cover and tapped the exhaust valves and wala...<5% leak down. After scratching our heads a little we figured as the engine must have been sitting with those valves open hence the readings. Anyway...nice to see the good numbers.

I'll see if somebody local wants the motor first as I have know idea how to ship such a beast (open to suggestions/recommendations). Plus I'm running low on time...just not enough hours in the day at the moment.
