SO was wondering if the seller has decided to realize that the motor did not received a full rebuild, even though it is in good condition. Unfortantly he seems mislead and bought the car from the person who had the work done, and was mislead when he bought the car.

Has the current seller ever even called Marcus, as if I did call and ask if the motor was rebuilt and was told NO, it just had a bunch of seals changed, I would say that I Would probley feel the seller has lied about it in some way.

There is 2 reasons a full proper rebuild wasn't done

1) precious owner only had so much money to dump
2) Marcus is honest and told the owner it only needed some new seals

but the fact remains that it wasn't fully rebuilt, and should not be advertised as such.

It would have read alot better that the motor was worked on at MGM, and all needed work and parts we refreshed and motor has good compresion with paperwork to show what and when it was done

When the previous owner (not Sikh93m5) came over a few times in August 2009 and said the motor was rebuilt by MGM, I was not too convinced and so I called Marcus myself, he told me it was a good motor but did not get a full rebuild as the owner could not afford one. He sure let it rip hard each time he came around to my place. He even asked for a refund on the chip, which I gave him. I think he was running out of funds. And his car has some really screwed up exhaust which sure didn't help him.

The car i got from him is in excellent shape i must say, but am curious about the exhaust problem your talkin about. What is the issue, i know he has no catalytic on it, what else is the problem from your knowledge.

Jims motor over at Metric is ready to go so hopefully you will be tuning it sooner than later.

The exhaust had very little back pressure and appeared to be running lean, you can see that from the dyno charts. craz azn also noted the weird exhaust.
