What are the chances of finding an RGS engine?

Gold Star Spitfire, looks to have plenty of interest by the number of bids.
Impressive perceived value for eBay. We'll see how it goes.

DA10R HHC engines are out there for sale, you just have to hunt.

You can find late motors but its would not be the right one.

Wow, that was in my backyard and I didn't know about it. Too bad, I have an RGSS engine that would have fit nicely.

Hi All,
I guessed that the price would rise, with 2 esnipe or similar bids in the last few seconds making it a gamble

Here's a link to a verified RGS engine to go with it

http://www.eBay.co.uk/itm/222512773492?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

With matching number RGS's the value seems to be north of £20k (GB) ?????,

WTF its only money that's losing value in the banks !!!
