Heya folks, im obviously new here, names mick, anyhow, ive come across a ncie n cheap maloo for sale so im thinking of getting out of the blue oval camp lol

shes advertised for 23 but he will go lower, and its got cam, mafless, exhaust, headers etc... 380rwhp it says on dyno sheets and driving it i beleive it.

now as me and ol mate were off for a drive my cousin checked out the storage shed it was in and there was a little oil ont he floor, jsut a little, rear main the cousin says, he knows his holdens too, got a 450rwhp 6.0 vz ss.

now talking to the cousins tuner that knows holdens eh says rear mains ont hese 5.7's is quite commona nd all that is required is some breathers ont he motor and shes apples.

im pretty keen on this thing, and i feel im getting it for a steal, but is there any advice to offer?

There are alot of variables and things you have not mentioned about the vehicle(S1or2, Km/s, R8, Manual/Auto, tyres, rims, clutch, service history & general condition)... so... based on what you have said:-

Read main seal is either motor and/or gearbox has to come out, so you are looking at >8/12hrs of work @ ~$90/hr=$720/1080...or free... just need Tools, some beer & BBQ with mates on a long weekend.
