The motor will not be removed from the car until the latter half of next month, hence the title "feeler." As soon as I buy my new DD car I can park the 320 and take out the engine
Description and good stuff:
The motor has 54K miles and 2.5K miles on the turbo setup. The intake resonance flapper has been removed, it basically equalizes air distribution but is not needed when boosting. The secondary air system has been removed as well but I can provide all the parts to return it to stock. The head gasket was replaced 500 miles ago. The compression was lowered, via thick head gasket, but the car WILL be returned to stock compression when sold(makes more safe power on stock compression anyway). In a E320 you can say goodbye to anything up to a 04 Mustang Cobra(12psi with water injection) and w210 E55's aren't even a challenge. I have done a few street races but that's as hard as the motor has been pushed, it has been extremely well maintained. Runs 5w-30 oil.
Valve cover is Dark Ford Blue and has several little pinhole scratches, it WILL be repainted when sold.
I cannot include the wiring harness
The manifold has a little rust on it but it WILL be knocked off and painted.
You will need a secondary transmission cooler and fresh ATF fluid if you have 97 722.6 equipped e320 or you can say bye bye to the tranny around 10psi on stock compression(400hp).
