Ah, i thought it sounded strange that there would be poor leak-down numbers on something with a fresh and properly built engine.
If this 89 car can be had for reasonable money then i wouldn't get too hung up on the leak-down numbers, just factor in a rebuild with the price and go for it. At least you will have a nice fresh engine that way, and maybe do some internal mods while you have it apart!
Or buy the EFI'd car, it looks great and has a good engine, even down to head sealing rings and strong rods, it would be a no brainer if i was state side and was in the market for one!

Just to be clear as I'm not the type to ditch someones car for my own benefit, but the car with a poor leak down is not the one linked at the start of this thread. it's a stock 89 that someone has offered me.
