What to Look For When Buying a Used JDM Engine?

I’m getting ready to move forward with fixing my car. I just want to make sure I don’t get a dud of an engine before I go ahead with my shade tree mechanic shenanigans.

Every seller claims, “compression tested” “40k -60k miles” “ONLY THE BEST.” How do I make sure they aren’t full of crap?


Here is one I plan on checking out. Is it just me or have the pulleys been repainted?

I’m in Southern California if anyone has any good local sellers.
