Just curious, how cheap is cheap? (For the LLT at least).

Complete engines (good low mileage) are around $3500 or less.

I paid ~$1,600 for the LLT I swapped into Gretchen before trading. It had 8K miles on it. This LFX has 4K miles and is a little over $1,800. Heck, one turbo is almost as much as the engine.

That's a great price on the engine. Now just to reinforce everything to go with it. I am interested to see if the original block shows any signs of the main caps shifting.
