SOLD!! Complete 1991 Gen2 3SGTE with non LSD e153

This is the original engine from my 1991 SW20 Turbo.
It made it all the way to 200,000km with only a hose from hell failure which was replaced at about 190,000km! The engine needs a freshen up, ever since I first purchased the car 10 years ago it has had an issue with blow by, I suspect rings as removing the oil cap results in a significant drop in idle! As a result the intake, piping and cooler have a nice coating of oil.
My intentions were to drive until something major went and replace it with a Gen3 3SGTE, this engine just refused to give up! As the kms crept up oil leaks have developed so it's a very dirty donk now! I relied on this as a daily so it has still been serviced regularly and never run low on oil so there are no knocks or issues.
This sale includes:
Complete 1991 Gen2 3SGTE engine
CT26 turbo with zero shaft play - zero!! I was blown away when I tried to wiggle the impeller!
Stock dump pipe Stock(ish) exhaust - see pictures it looks like someone welded in a cat or another muffler?
AFM Stock intake piping
Stock intercooler with fan
AC compressor
Gen 2 non LSD e153 gearbox - The gearbox will also need a rebuild, 2nd and 3rd gear are almost as crunchy as a bowl of coco pops. Gen 2 non LSD axles with hubs - the brake shields are bent to accommodate larger Gen3 brakes - brakes are NOT included.
Price: $1800
I need to make some room in my garage so I can rip the 2GR out of my Aurion so I really want to just get rid of this whole setup in one hit. If I can find a buyer for the engine and a buyer for the gearbox I will consider selling them separately.
Pickup only from Medowie, 30 mins north of Newcastle. I have an engine crane so I can assist loading into a ute/wagon/4wd.
Thanks for looking!
