Stop me before I kill again.

No, seriously.

Buy this good running 117K love machine before I decide to remove its heart. It is really too nice for me to kill, but I swear I will do it! The intake has been done, there is a bit of rust under the rockers it was owned by a smoker so it probably smells of asterisk.

$750.00 and I will fill the tank before you drive it away.

Is this yours or a customers?

On a totally unrelated note... keep an eye out for a Subaru 2.5L short block. I need one.
Dual cam motor (not sure if it matters) for my '98 Forester.

Carry on.

Wrong state, otherwise I'd be digging for change.

One of my techs just bought a Croutan and I bought it for the engine to swap into a Beetle... It is really too nice to toss out so I will give it a week before I dissect it.

What is the capacity, under 3500?

The only info I could find was for a 1995 version with a tow package, 3000lbs was the number.

Yeah, I missed out on 3 local Subie 2.5L's already.

The van - is it a 7 passenger? When could I look at it this week? Is it at the shop and are you driving it every day?

Again, my second post with unrelated information: I have some MK1 performance stuff if that Caddy is yours and you wanted to add a 4K close ratio 5-speed or big front sway bar.

Tony,

The van does have three seating rows so either 6 or seven passenger. Tomorrow night would be awesome but any time will be fine. Yes it is at the dealership. Fred was driving it daily but just bought a Routan so he is not anymore. The Caddy belongs to a different tech, it is a diesel and is the envy of many.

Wifey has killed the idea. She wants her Forester running, not a mini van.

John, do you still have this beast? My buddy Devon with the neon rt had some mouth breathing bottom feeding donor organ-still-in-it's-packaging steal it. He needs a new ride, and he has 4 kids... Van would be good. Plus, he already has one like it!

Damnit Joel... I wish I had known that yesterday.

The vandango went to another guy at work for helping me rewire the Stratuscaster.
