I have a chance to pick up a 6 bolt 1g that's been wrecked for 350. has 5x,xxx miles on it but i have no idea what a 4 year sit on a wrecked dsm will do. Im planning on taking a gallon of gas, oil and battery. I only want the motor so the rest will be scrapped. Any hope?

For $350 I'd buy it. The turbocharger alone can be sold for that much if it works. Definately a go for me.

Then buy it, just clean up the motor (combustions chambers and all, 4 years is a long time) and you'll be fine (in theory).

that's what im hoping. I could think of any reason why it wouldn't work, and didn't get any more from you guys so im going to go ahead and pick her up.

350 is nothing. as long as it runs, pull it. even if you dont need it resell it to someone who crankwalked.

yeah take it and sell it to someone who is looking for one to rebuild anyway. you could make money on at least if its worth the hassle to you. (sell it to a honda kid)
