I'd look real close at the install, huge props if the tech is meticulous enough to put it back together as to look like it's never been messed with. That's what I really don't like about it. Used cars that look like people have had their hands everywhere in them.

Engine will have lower miles than rest of car, is it really a big deal or is it a 'perk'
The reason behind this particular engine swap is acceptable.
Tearing down/rebuilding a motor is not brain surgery. All of the TSBs on the motors GM puts together should show you that a properly rebuilt motor is at least as good as one put together at the factory.

Haha, the best part of this is that Chuck Nash will get a massive bill for this dealers labor.

A rebuilt engine yes, but not a factory drop in.

Good point. I wouldn't want it if they had to do any machine work on the block.

Remind the Henna service department that this is an audition for them. Many Austin area Camaro owners are anxiously waiting the outcome on this and will most likely factor this into where they take their vehicles for warranty work.

When is Henna going to be finished with the engine install? Looking forward to the resolution of this problem. I sure hope the lifters don't tick on the new motor.

Seriously! Henna Chevrolet is the best damn dealer in the Country!

We're about to fire it up with the new motor.

They even installed my Kooks longtubes, hi flow cats and my new GM deep sump transmission pan! So excited.
