like 165k or something. The car reads 273k except the engine was replaced recently with one that has 160 and it was barley driven after that. Damn, I might have to buy your extra head off of you. I'm gonna get a few more people to check it out to make sure it was the head then ill get back to you. also, let me know when my package ships!
