First let me say thanks for the speedy response to my ? Second let me say working on cars in February outdoors in MI is no fun. It wasn't the core itself, but the hose next to the turbo.

Ugh..... ...

So after 4 months and about 102 inches of snow i dug my car out and in about just 2 seconds of turning the key the car rolled over with no problems. With that im putting to bed my electrical issues of the fall. However, after checking the fluids i ran quite about low on coolant, and with the car not...

I got the whole engine (block, head, turbo, intake and exhaust manifolds as a single piece in a crate. I was told it came off a SVO, and it does have a 1x4 intake not the 2x2 that ive seen on Merkurs. It has the same amount of bolt holes just in a slightly different config where 1 doesn't match up. ...

If drilled and tapped it would probably go through the head wall rigth into the valve compartment? its very thin where the hole needs to be. maybe 1/4 inch.

agian what can i reasonably get for this thing? few hundred? i have to ship it and want to know if its worth bringing back home with me.
