In any case, i bet the price was right, and for a few hundred bucks and a weekend worth of work you will have a good driver. Hope you are prepared to deal with corroded bolts. I think that was my biggest pet peeve with every Hyundai I have ever touched... 2-3 year old bolts would snap from corrosion.
You know me... I am always up for a good CL find! Looks like a nice one. The XL350 was never one of my favorite cars however, if the price it right...
I can be swayed.

It's just a mirror image, right down to the stupid intake manifold-that covers the back head and makes changing plugs a nightmare- thing going on. That would be a 6G74, backwards. Good engines.
To be more specific and fair, it is modeled after the engine (which is a 6G72 backwards) found in the 3rd gen Eclipse V6, which found its way in 2.7L form to the Tiburon, and now 3.5L form in that car.

funny, down here when someone talks about a +2000cc car everybody its like wow thats a big engine!, and V6 are less than desirable, everyone looks for 1.6l motors or smaller. I think thats why diesel are so popular here.
looks like a real nice project! I really like hyundai cars the are making big improvements everyear

When can I come down to get you to help me change my timing belt and water pump?
