    It certainly looks like a real engine. It's an "Evolution" made from 1984 - 2000 (for certain models). It could be a hollow block, or fully functional. If you can lift it by yourself, it's probably a model.

    Would be a serious waste for someone to use what looks like a "new" EVO to make a table. As Breeze said above, if you can lift the engine part of the table by yourself without some serious grunting and risk of a hernia, then it is probably not a working engine. That doesn't mean it is not engine parts, it just means that the guts may not be there.

    Take the air cleaner cover off and see what is behind it. If there is a filter element, and there is a carburetor behind the backing plate, then it is starting to suggest that it may be real.

    Where did you get it? If you bought it, how much was it (ballpark)? A new working EVO is gonna start around $2,500 depending on displacement and go up from there. So if you bought this "table" for much less, then someone did not know what they had, or it is not a working engine.

    Let us know what you figure out. Got our curiosity up!!!

    Cheers,

    TQ
