    Depending on how well it was maintained, it may last a good long time. $4500 is too much for a car with that kind of mileage though.

    $4500 is high UNLESS it's in really good shape. If the exterior is all original with little-to-no problems, and the interior is super clean also, it might be worth $4500. And if it has mods on it that you would do anyway, then that's a plus also.

    On account of longevity, these motors will last a LONG time if properly maintained. At 150k miles, I personally would replace the timing chains and guides. That is probably the most common cause of a complete catastrophe on these motors, with oil starvation due to low oil being the 2nd.
