At the end of the day, as the potential buyer, I don't really care. I have my surveyor/mechanic check it out and give me a or . He talks and I listen.

There are two aspects of it I would still care about, regardless of how well it is currently running. Now this is just me and may not be logical but personal preferences often aren't. First, I generally prefer to avoid the maximum horsepower out of any specific engine. We cruise at 80% often and I just feel like the further the engine has been stretched the less the durability might be at that type load. Second, I like factory built versions and am not a fan of engines which have been modified in any way by individual owners post factory. I don't care how knowledgeable the prior owner might be, I don't feel they have all the knowledge and information the factory had.

Now this is not to underestimate a good engine survey. That's a given in my mind.
