here is an article :

here is a link to the thread.

Here is an initial list of the shit wrong:
"Here's what we found on the initial inspection and removal of the engine from the car.

1. The BCM module harness connector was not locked down in the ECU compartment.
2. We removed the oil pan and there was a large amount of bearing material in it.
3. Several body components were missing, including the front undertrays, front tunnel support brace, and rear exhaust heat shield for the trans cooler.
4. The car was equipped with a Air to Water Intercooler with a tank in the exhaust muffler area and 10AN lines running to the front of the car. These lines ran through the transmission tunnel, and were rubbing the driveshafts, exhaust, and axles to the point of failure in several areas with minimal support.
5. The battery support bracket was missing, and a non-oem battery was being held down with twine.
6. The passenger marker light harness was disconnected and zip-tied to the oil cooler.
7. The foam bumper support was broken and secured to the car with painter's tape
8. The main structural braces on both sides of the car that secure the front carbon clip to the steel frame of the car in the fenderwells were missing.
9. The intercooler piping utilized V-Band clamps with permatex on them, which I've never seen before, and doubt that they were air tight.
10. Permatex Black was used on the threads of all AN fittings.
11. The radiator and overflow tank were filled with bearing material.
12. The front passenger ABS harness was broken and the wires were pinned directly into the female side of the harness.
13. The T1 Fuel rail feed had been tapped to accept an AN to NPT fitting, with PTFE paste on the threads, which appeared to be leaking.
14. The wastegate adjustment arms had been welded together.
15. The turbo drains had been zip-tied to the body and were rubbing on the front axle stubs.
16. One of the lower intercooler couplers was ripped.
17. The exhaust manifold gaskets were missing on both sides, and instead high temp rubber gasket sealer was used. This appeared to be leaking on the passenger side.
18. The Driver side upper control arm bolt was stripped out.
19. The PCV system had been deleted, and the PCV outlets on the valve covers had been removed, tapped for 6AN, and were open to atmosphere.
20. The front bumper support clips under the sides of the headlights were missing.
21. The front diffuser support brackets to the crash beam were missing.
22. Various misc. body fasteners and trim were missing.
23. The driver side frame had been clearanced to avoid contact with the wastegate actuator on the turbo."

on post #96 are a bunch of pictures of the teardown.   It didn't have oil pressure and only made it 40 miles.

If they're dumb enough to think that the threads are what seals an AN fitting, then they probably should sell their tools and get a job washing dishes.
