    WTB: ZHP sedan w/ blown or no engine!

    Hey all, I'm looking for a ZHP with a bad engine. I found the PERFECT candidate for an s54 swap about a year ago, but ended up getting a steal on a ZHP engine with 26k miles on it. Car was immaculate and the swap went great, but I miss the car like crazy and wish I would've gone s54. I've been looking on searchtempest and here every day, but I know some of the mafia'ites have a great eye for finding ZHPs. If anyone runs across one, could you please let me know? Thanks! Must be a sedan and clean title. Auto/manual doesn't matter.

    just buy a running car and sell the motor. a lot easier than stressing and looking all the time.

    A running car is significantly more than one without a working engine, even if you factor in selling the old motor. M54's aren't worth much...

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    they're worth something. and a running car is a lot easier to find than a clean car with a dead motor. you could be waiting two years to find one.

    it's only money. you'll make more...

    Ditto. Sure I could spend more for a running one and sell the engine but I'm okay with waiting and I think it's a lot more rewarding in the end to find just the right car for the swap!

    No limit as long as it's a fair deal. My last car was about as nice of a ZHP roller as could be had, so I know about what I'd like to pay but I'll consider anything.

    I thought price was a concern? If it isn't, then I'd just buy any ZHP that tickles your fancy and go the route Peter suggested.

    Haha I guess it's all in my head! Price really isn't an issue, but I would have a hard time justifying the cost of a perfectly good running ZHP just to take the whole drivetrain out and sell it for a loss. Ultimately that may be the best option though, as it's proving to be very hard to find what I'm looking for. Should've gone s54 last time
