Should I buy this lude?

http://indianapolis.craigslist.org/cto/812814727.html

If I'm not mistaken (which I probably am) that has a JDM steering wheel on it.

I have a b20a5 at my house on a motor stand with 75k on it, and if I bought this lude, I'd have three motors to use parts from.

The oil leak sounds like a gasket, so I'll see what happens.

Just let me know what you guys think

Re: Should I buy this lude?

What are you buying it for? The body, parts from the motor or both? Either way, talk him/her down to like 1K and sell what you don't use and you should probably break even or come close. If you just want it for parts, talk him/her down and sounds like a good deal.

I'm buying it to replace my current lude, which is basically trashed.
I spent about a half day routing the vacuum lines yesterday, only to find that my enging bay was bent in from the wreck I was in.
I'm basically going to get rid of my current lude, sell it for parts or something, and get a new lude for my 18th in 2 weeks

It says 2.0 in the Craigslist ad. Is it a b20a? <--go check the motor stamp. Oil leak could be anything...maybe oil pump and/or seal?

I think it's an ALB model. The steering wheel(which is USDM, F*** JDM!!) doesn't say 4ws under the H logo

good luck!
