    "Like New" 427....Thoughts?

    Ok guys. Was looking around for some Ford Performance 427 deals and I pulled the trigger on this:

    Scheduled for Fri, Sep 14 12PM - 3PM
    Track package
    Ford M-6007-Z2427FFT Crate Engine
    Sold by: Warehouse Deals, Inc.
    $6,919.00
    Condition: Used - Like New - Item will come in original packaging. Packaging will be damaged.

    This was sold by Amazon and has a 30 day return policy on the engine if not as described, so I've got plenty of time to check it out. The "Used - Like New" description was defined "untouched item in perfect condition with absolutely no signs of wear...Item is suitable to be given as a "gift".

    Thought what the heck. Let's see what it looks like when it gets here. These don't come with intakes, so it would be pretty obvious if the engine has ever been installed or run. Exhaust ports or mounting tabs would also be a tell tale sign. Anything else you guys can think of?

    I won't be installing this for a few more months, so need to check it out pretty good. Ford Performance gives these engines 2 years or 30K mile warranties, and the warranty is transferrable. Any thoughts on that and how it would apply to this purchase? Not sure if Ford has one register their engine or not after purchase.

    I've only had one experience with Warehouse Deals, Inc. through Amazon and it was less than stellar. Check it over completely as soon as you receive it. Ford may not warranty it if it isn't sold through an authorized seller, so be sure you know what you can expect up front. Great price! Hope it works out for you.

    Thanks Dave. I’ve had mixed results as well with Warehoise deals. Good thought on the warranty piece. Ford doesn’t specify on their crate engine warranties that you have to buy from an authorized dealer, but I’ll inquire.
