Default Updated: For Sale S4 5.0L Engine $475

I've got a 5.0L short block that I pulled out of my running MY87 S4. Car ran fine but had high miles (200k). Compression numbers as follows (1-8): 220, 215, 170, 190, 170, 185, 172, 190. Cylinder walls look good. Surely someone can use this motor, great starting point for a project or run it as-is. Local pick-up only (for now...). PM if interested.

Block numbers: M28/42 81H 07399 High production number, sorry guys - no squirter here.

15 seconds with Brake cleaner and a paper towel will reveal an engine serial number that might ignite lots of speculation about whether it's a squirter block and then some hot 'n heavy PM'ing with offers, if it is.

No such thing as TMI when yer sellin' something....

And now that you have said its an 87, people will want to know what number. All 87s have the better rods and the thicker pistons.

Even without the squirters, you probably still have the big-dish thick-top pistons and the PPF rods. You might get a couple of hundred bucks for it. (I am not a pricing expert, so caveat venditor... )

Oh by the way, if you can give the minimum cylinder tower outside diameter for each of the cylinder towers, there's a small chance that those measurements might generate some interest....

Offering it to the local guys first to avoid having to ship this boat anchor... if no one takes it I'll have no choice but to ship it.

My 928 track project has benifited from many parts that I pulled off this '87, but the engine is not needed. I was going to hold on to the block but decided not to store it... so off she goes. The heads are currently on eBay as we speak.
