Junkyard Boxster

Assuming you were stupid enough to buy a junkyard 1999 Boxster for almost nothing, with no history, but all the parts look present, and no visible evidence of a wreck, wouldn't you assume there is probably catastrophic engine damage?

Assuming you were stupid enough to winch it on a trailer and sneak it home without your SO seeing it and were able to hide it in a corner and cover it with a tarp, what should be your sequence of events to figure out what's wrong with it?

Before doing anything, or moving it, I would check to see if it is a flood car, if it is, run away, quickly..........

I forgot to mention that it would be used only as a Champ Car Endurance Racer.

Remove the oil sump cover & see what you find, also the oil filter canister.
