I just want to know do you think its a good idea to buy an engine involved in that kind of accident?
Missing the intake manifold is a RED FLAG. The intake ports face slightly upward and with the manifold off, anything could have fallen in those ports and possibly into the cylinders. At least one valve is open at all times. Water is the big threat here but it could be anything.
