Engine swaps are a lot less likely nowadays, thanks to the ease of power upgrades on the 453 by way of turbocharging + DCT!!! :nerd: :) :D

You need to add it to your stable!!!
+1 on that. Besides that is not a bad deal considering how much labour is involved in just pulling the motor to do a head gasket. Imagine how much time was spent shoe horning that motor in it and all the custom fabrication required to hook everything up. Bet they might even get down to around $20k as it sounds like nobody is biting.

I've been informed by the Lane Motor Museum that they have taken the car into their possession. I'll be visiting the Lane this Summer for their roadster, but it looks like I have something else to drool over!
