Is this what I think it is...Diablo 302 V8 engine?

Well, I like cars but lack the knowledge of all the specifics. Anyways...I was looking in the classifieds of my local paper and I found this...

Engine: Diablo 302 V8. 345 HP, short block. New/ still in crate. Paid $2000 asking $1000. Serious inquires only.

Me and my step-dad immediately thought it was a Lambo engine. But, seeing as it is so cheap we thought no way in hell. And we live in a town that is small, and we don't have many big shots in our city. Lafayette, IN. I am making sure that I am not missing a deal. So, is it a Lambo engine? If it is, which I doubt, I would have to buy abunch of other stuff to get it running right? Such as hoses, intake, all that mumbo jumbo, right? Thanks in advance.

Yeah, I got the info from my friend. It is a GM. And, I guess it is a terrible engine.

if it's the same engine I am thinking of (pre 308 V8) than its a great engine.

If it was a lambo engine for 1 grand, than you are buying 1/546th of the engine.

This is definitely not a lambo engine. When it says Diablo, it's not the Lamborghini Diablo, rather it's the name of the engine specifically.

302's a ford engine. Diablo's (lamborghini Diablo's) had V12s. If it came FROM a Diablo, then it's from a kit Diablo, not the real thing.
