Car Purchase

Model: Carrera, Year:1999, Mileage:52,000, Type of use:Street use only
Purchased a 1999 Carrera last month that had a factory replacement motor done 05/04/2005 @ 32,000 miles, and engine#M9601AT66X66119. My mechanic says the intermittent shaft bearing might have been updated. Can't be sure without removing the trans. Can you tell me by the engine # or date of replacement? Also can you tell me if this is a truly new motor or remanufactured, and what parts are new, and used? Leak down test was 1% on 5 cyl, 2% on 1, and compression 170 on 5 cyl, and 160 on 1. How would you rate this motor with these numbers? My mechanic says these are good numbers. I'm concered it's to good to be true. What do you think?Thank you.
