This is up on ebay but im new to this so I cant tell if this is a good deal or not. Id share the find just to learn what i should be looking for in the future or maybe bid on this.

What I see is a late model blower with oil covered rotors, almost burnt looking on one. Cant tell if the coating is intact or not.
Looks to have been ported on the plenum and not the sc.
Pp throttle body which ive read is not the 1rst choice for tb upgrade.

If you owned a 91 and were looking to stepup hp in the future would you bid on this for around $375?

Can this be cleaned up and run with my stock tb for now?

You're going down the same road I went down. The unit I bought was very dirty so it was difficult to tell the condition. When it arrived, installing it as is wasn't acceptable to me so I took it apart for cleaning and inspection. Once you do this you almost have to at least replace bearings which maybe you can do yourself, maybe you can't. In any case, you can buy mine for less than that ebay unit - just make an offer. No throttle body but you know exactly what you're getting. I can send more pics if you're genuinely interested.
