Anyone here bought an FX50 lately? Mid-2020

This might be a slight reach, but here's the deal. I have been very leisurely looking at FXs over the past couple of years and recently found one that caught my eye.

This specific FX is in Meridian, Mississippi. However, I have reached out to the presumable seller by all 3 conventional means and have had no response: text, call (+ voicemail) as well as email.

2013 FX50S
Black ext/black int
154K miles declared

Is there any chance the seller or even new owner is on this forum? I wanted to make a final attempt at getting in touch with whomever owns the car. Maybe it's already sold and the lister just hasn't bothered to take the ad down?

Either way, I hope everyone is OK.

I own a 2009 FX50s. Its been a tremendous vehicle. Good power but not as powerful as my M56. It handles very well for an SUV. I hope you get your hands on one. I've watched your YouTube post for years regarding the M56. I'd love to swap the 5.0 with the 5.6. More power and better fuel economy due to the 5.6 being direct injection. The 5.0 is a rare and special engine though that has racing roots. Maybe a rear mounted twin turbo with get me the power I'd like to see.

Thanks Jlrobe80!

I have studied so much of the FX, and I get more and more excited to get my hands on one. In reality, I just want the VK50VE engine to play with, so even if I got a high mileage FX I'd be happy. I had a line on an engine after someone was swapping his damaged one out, but communication just dropped.

I still have and intend to keep the M56s, but before we work out some kinks or some bottlenecks on that engine, playing with the FX50 engine seems like an easier target for my engine swaps.

Are you doing any treatments for your m56 to fight carbon build up on intake valves?

I don't use any chemical cleaners or additives; I am leaning towards walnut blasting. Things have been moving a lot slower than I would have liked, but I wanted to design an adapter for the engine.
Long term, I would like a dual injection system but I haven't gathered enough empirical data to support the idea yet.
