ahm- how much does he or she want for the car?

what happen to the original engine-

u buying the car for investment-if so no good if the original is missing-

come time to sell u might get your money back or a u will get a lot of buyer's asking the where the original engine is-

i was selling my car with the same setup as u mention+but did have original motor and box out of mine-put away-people on here+freinds said i would get more for it being original-that's what i am doing at the moment-.

I would say if it is cheap why not but if its expensive well u know my answer-

or if that blocks turns up and its at a good price-get it also where is the t5g and do u want a monster walky or u want it to be original

if original where or have u got the other parts to turn it back to 75% original?

every one knows a-walkies are worth something and are expensive -but ask yourself would u pay top dollar for a 25 % orignal car? also think of the future for re-sale value-

why waste money in the future if everyone walkiew are worth heaps in year's to come?

Have a good think about what i have said-

p.s killer combo though -

They might as well have used an exec and built it up to be a walky replica.

Basically from what your saying, the driveline has been completely replaced. Not good for resale.

If you can get the original engine, then you might be ok.

All depends on price. But without the original parts to convert it back, your not gonna make money and may struggle to break even in years to come.
