Was the "???" part of post #4 that got cut off?
I doubt you could find one for $3000. The engines are super rare although there are a handful of turbo 602's out there in the 2.5 W124's but i don't know if they would bolt up easily. Perhaps a high mileage car would be had for $3k but you have the rust factor if you go out of state and body damage quotient as well. You have to gauge what you want in terms of speed, cost, cosmetics, and exclusivity.
I presume the cars at LCB were to be convereted but some cars were trashed and had dents galore and some even had windows down in a very shady neighborhood so I can only guess that they will convert it.
If you have $3k call Brian...but you have to be persistent and say you saw a 2.5 T there and you wanted to know more about it and would make an offer on it since they are a for profit business more so than the hippie freedom of information thing I was initially led to believe.
