Is this worth it?

I think I'll be going for the PI then, I've heard that the police interceptor isn't suggested though, is that right?

I don't know if it's suggested or not, but by now i'd expect an '01 police cruisers motor to have high miles on it as well as having spent a huge amount of hours just idling...unless it was wrecked early on or something like that. Hard to tell when all he's got is the drivetrain to sell.

the time spent idleing doesnt seem that bad to me, my friend has a 97 p71 with quite a few miles, i dont know how many off hand but it was auctioned from the cops so it lived through all they wanted to put it through. and that thing doesnt use any oil and runs like a top with great compression in all 8, and thats a non-pi. if you get that trans in the package deal youll need to get a shorter drive shaft cause the cop 4r70w has an inch longer tail shaft than a regular 4r70w for the benifit of shortening the driveshaft. its a fleet vehical so you know its oil has been changed like clock work, and all the little bugs have gotten worked out. i would go for it, personally.

EDIT: By "This" I meant the Crown Vic motor and tranny.
