Got lucky for the first time....

....finding a new engine. Went to pick up my new to me project engine today, hopefully build in the future. Thought I would share what I scored for a hell of a deal. Only 62,xxx miles on it, looks pretty clean. Overall I got the engine, all parts (intake, starter, alternator, etc.) to make it run, a flywheel with 2 clutch plates (one almost brand new), and a old euro license plate....all for free.

Here's some pics. I know they aren't the best but I was too lazy to hop into the bed of my dad's truck lol.















And of course the awesome euro plate straight from his garage from europe lol. He seemed to have a German accent, maybe something else. He had like 3 or 4, I was hoping for the newest one but oh well.

Looks clean. And that would be the highly sought after early 2000 intake manifold. Nice score.

Hmm didn't know there was a difference in intakes, but I haven't done much research on...Foci in general actually lol just bits and pieces I've read on here. I hope this is gonna be a good learning experience since it's my first build...but I'm still deciding on if I should keep it and build it or part it out.
