    well if its only a cam, it needs some heads to breathe through, i'd say drive it for a while and save a good 5k for a good build

    '98 WS6 M6 - SWAPTIME!

    see if you can talk the seller down some. i got mine w/ 109k on the clock for $8500 ... since then i have dumped $2000 into repairs and upgrades from original parts ... i probably should have shot for at least $7500 looking back on it

    RE: about 2 buy

    Heres the info on the 98. The owner said he needed to replace the head gasket. My concern is the mileage and the compression effect it had on it. My second option in a 02 bone stock Z28 with 66k miles going for 9k. Would appreciate advice…

    is this the same one w/ the head gasket? because if it needs a head gasket, you're already in over your head if you're not doing it yourself because it's a PITA in car.
