I'm more tempted to move forward and make more information available of the V10, GRB bodystyle.
As things are, I think I posted several times that one should take a step back and count how many years old a V7 is and how much money they end up costing, for how old they are.
My personal opinion is that no junkyard, 10+ years old engine, should cost $3000+
I am struggling with the thought that this very thread can be an instrument for the prices to continue to be where they are.

These are engines that sat in a junkyard, possibly after a colision, maybe a serious accident and did not even turn for more than 5-7 years.

I was thinking in the past, that classic car first start-up rules should apply:

Take the spark plugs out and spray WD40, a thin film, turn it by hand couple times, etc..

And people want to buy these and begin running double the designed horsepower from day one...

So yes, we have to move forward in time, to the newer engines, sorry.
